A VERY WARM THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS
Encouraged, empowered, victorious. Words that inspired the naming of our organization. But, what does this have to do with our volunteers?
Along the way of creating VictoryLife House, every person I shared my vision with was a volunteer on some level. They all had one thing in common; they shared their hearts with me. Either they were nay sayers, unbelievers, folks lacking faith or simply lack of care. These people were my hurdles who gave me the resolve to show them that God was on my side in this effort.
Now the others, the ones who encouraged me, they are the ones who empowered me to be victorious. Seriously, without these folks, VictoryLife House would not be in existence! The really cool thing that none of them realized was that the “house” was never the goal. The goal was to create a safe, empowering “home-nest” to other women coming out of domestic violence who would leave my home victorious in Christ and make a difference for the kingdom of God!
With the ongoing help of our volunteer Christian counselors, horticulturists, dance instructors, self- defense trainers, teachers of life skills, drivers, Board members, clerical staff and countless other hearts at work, we don’t survive as a nonprofit, we thrive. I have no way to ever thank these folks in any proper way or even express how humbled I am for their selflessness, caring and love showered on VictoryLife House and the girls inside. What words could express that? Thank you gifts and appreciation dinners and thoughts of bronze statues are options for this life, but I know our Heavenly Father has greater gifts for them eternally. Hopefully they will feel the love of God flow out of VictoryLife House as much as we have felt it flowing in.
A SPECIAL THANKS TO THOSE WHO OBVIOUSLY GRAVITATE TOWARD CHALLENGES AND PUT UP WITH ME!
Thank you beyond infinity Colin for your unfailing encouragement, knowledge, and sharing. My site would still be a mere thought without your expertise!
Jack, your servant's heart is amazing and an inspiration. Try as I might, a thousand words cannot express my gratitude. I look forward to supporting your next cause!
