November  2018 Newsletter

Give Thanks in All Things!


Our month started off at the TCA Craft Fair.  We sold lots of plaques and made quite a few contacts.  It was very successful!  The ladies spent their Sunday Funday at the Women Unite Concert!  It was such a blessing!
 
One of our ladies works at Texas Star Retreat and Venue Center.  Because of that contact, Lady B gave our women an opportunity to work at a wedding that was held there.  It gave them a chance to earn some money!  Thank you Lady B and Texas Star!
A Wonderful Group from Solid Rock Church came for a workday.  They moved rocks, took down fencing, washed windows, went through donated clothing and then to top it off, they made dinner and served our women!  What an incredible team of men and women!  Thank you so much Solid Rock!
With the Lord giving us a bit of a break from women coming last month, He made up for it this month!  We have had 3 new women come this month…Jaden, Swanietra (NeNe) and Kelly!  They all have such wonderful gifts and talents and are a wonderful addition to our Sanctified Hope Family!
It's always exciting when our women receive their driver’s license!  Congratulations Krystal!
Our Church of the month was Greenwood Baptist Church!  The women thoroughly enjoyed being there!  It was our first visit and will for sure not be our last!
Lastly was the sweet Thanksgiving Celebration.  Some of the women were able to invite family.  All of them helped to cook.  It was a beautiful time of fellowship and thankfulness.  We even had a bon fire in the evening and had S’mores!

A NOTE FROM OUR DIRECTOR

November is always known as the month that we give thanks.  God’s word doesn’t’ say to give thanks for all things, but to give thanks IN all things.  If you have been reading our newsletters, you know that my husband Tracy has cancer.  It has been quite a journey for the last several months.  He has had 2 major surgeries where they have had to remove half of his tongue and his jawbone, replace it with grafts from different places in his body and reconstruct.  We got the report that the dr got all clear margins, but then two weeks after his surgery, at a checkup, another spot was found.  It is cancer. It will continue to pop up.  This spot needs to be treated in a quick fashion.  A lot has come up since then…infection, things not healing, etc.  Do I thank God for all of this?  Absolutely not!  Do I thank Him through this?  YES!  He is our strength and our shield.  So many wonderful things have happened through all of this.  The ladies here at Sanctified Hope are getting to witness God at work first hand in numerous ways.  Tracy is growing in his faith and I am in awe of the strength the Lord continues to give me.  We are very thankful for our Sanctified Hope family.  The prayers and love have been overwhelmingly beautiful.  Please continue to pray for Sanctified Hope and for my family. 
 
Please don’t forget Sanctified Hope in your end of the year giving.  We are trying to raise a matching $10,000 for our new Educational Building before breaking ground.  We also have everyday financial needs as well.  If the Lord lays it on your heart to give, contact us or look for it on our web site under support.  Click the donate button.  God Bless you during the holiday season!
 
Much Love,
Sharon
