 Loveliness...

 They could have done anything with their afternoons through out the school year.

College girls - with their futures ahead of them and countless opportunities  around them.

But they chose to spend their time ministering to young women who desperately needed to see their beautiful smiles and become recipients of their welcoming kindness.

God knew right where they would be and the women whose lives they would touch.

These three beautiful young women may never know the impact they have made.

They may never see the results of some of the hours they have put in.

But God knows. And the women who they have met with, smiled at, educated, prayed with, and reached out to know.

Their kind hearts are a shining example of how to be Jesus to our community.

When they could have been doing something else,

they chose this,

now,

here.

Now life will take them on many different journeys, but I think they will agree with me when I say that some of their perspectives were forever changed because of the hours they spent giving their time, and their hearts to this ministry.


"Who knows but that you have come to a royal position for such a time as this..."


Seeing your hearts has certainly encouraged mine girls.Ministering along side of you at The Center For Women has been a pleasure. Your beauty goes so far beyond the surface.

Have a great summer!
