Although we never met in person, I am blessed to get the honor of calling you about a month ago. Thank you for sharing the “HOPE” message from your pastor. It was exactly what I needed to devote my hope and faith stronger to our Lord and Savior. You also turned me to The Castlewoods Apartments. I must again thank you because I move there June 1. Its a great 2 bedroom apartment and would not have found it on my own. Lastly, you prayed with me on the telephone that day . You were doing Gods work that day and eased my pain that I was having in my messy life.


I want to share with you that the flood gates have opened for me and my life has turned around by The Great Almighty. He sent me an amazing job at Florida Hospital Breast Care Center and I am now EMPLOYED ! So, I just felt the need to say God Bless you and God truly has blessed me for needing the HOPE that day as well as today . He sent me to you at the right time. AMEN!


Theres no better love than the love of Jesus Christ!


Have a happy Easter.


Thank you again from my heart.

R.D. ~ a spoken for mom

Where do I begin? I guess I would start by saying that I was lost, but now I am found. (No that will NEVER get old!)  I grew up in a dysfunctional home.  Raised in my younger years by a single mom with an alcoholic father who was never around.  I never felt loved or accepted by him or any other man in my life.


At 16 I became pregnant and the father abandoned me and our daughter.  I dropped out of high school and pursued wrong ways of attaining income.  I had grown up in the church but knew only religion.  I never had a relationship with the Lord.  So the guilt took control of me and I started drinking.  This sent me into a deep depression.  During this time my daughter was taken away from me and I then began needing prescription medication and running into the arms of a man for comfort.  This became my coping mechanisms.


I started to lose everything: my job, car, apartment…my daughter and I started living anywhere and everywhere.  As I become more unstable, so did my daughter.  I reached out to a friend, the most trustworthy friend I’ve ever had, and she told me about a church called Church In The Son.  This church had a ministry designed for single mothers called E.S.T.H.E.R.


On June 19th I went to an E.S.T.H.E.R. meeting and was thrown a lifeline and I grabbed it!!! The Lord showed me how much He loved me and accepted me for me and set me free and showed me that I NO longer needed a drug to calm me or a man to validate me!!  In my Father’s arms—ALL IS WELL with my soul.


God has blessed my beyond words over the past 2 years.  I have dedicated my life to learning all about my Savior and Redeemer,how to live for Him and to be His representative.  I am so thankful for the E.S.T.H.E.R. ministry.  I truly have been encouraged, strengthened, taught, helped, equipped and restored.  It is a ministry that reflects the heart of the Lord!  As I am writing out my testimony, I am so thankful to be able to add that through prayer and fasting and believing God’s Word—my daughter met her father for the very first time after 16 1/2 years.


God is a God of RESTORATION!!!


I was attending your bible study group with my daughter, while my fiance was incarcerated. I went for a few months and i absolutely loved being there. You guys are wonderful and i miss going. With the job i had, i was unable to make it back for a couple months, however now i got a better job and allows me and my daughter to come every Tuesday again.  I had the pleasure of getting to know the speaker Bronwen (forgive me for misspelling) Marci, and Barbra and i miss their presence. My birthday recently just passed July 11th and you had sent me a card and i just want to say THANK YOU. it felt SO good and i was so happy to receive it. Im always thinking about you all and i can not wait to come back and learn. Have a wonderful day ? see you soon.
