I was so excited earlier this week when I contacted one of the shelters we work with to see about sending scarves to them for the winter. We send items to this particular shelter about once a month and usually we send 5-10 items (that seems to cover the amount of girls they have at the shelter at any given time.). BUT, to my surprise, and an answer to my prayers :), the shelter is currently helping 30 GIRLS who have been rescued from Human Trafficking!!!!
When I read that email it was EXCITEMENT and PANIC that rushed over me all at one time! I was excited about the number of girls who were no longer living in that horrible darkness!! And I was panicked because 30 scarves is a lot and I hadn’t expected that!
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.
1 Peter 4:10 ESV
I decided to post a message on our FB page letting everyone know about the opportunity and if anyone wanted to help they could contact me.
God gave MANY people around me the gift to crochet/knit… some I didn’t even realize!! I started receiving emails and messages from people who wanted to help and who knew how to crochet/knit. I also received messages from people who didn’t know how, but wanted to learn so they could make a difference!
As we use our gift of crochet for the passion to help those rescued from Human Trafficking, we will shine bright TOGETHER!!
I am no longer panicked, but full of excitement for this next adventure!!
