It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me about what’s been going on with Stripped Free. There is so much to tell, I’m not even sure where to start. For the sake of time and because my husband is always reminding me that blogs are not supposed to be lengthy, I will just give you a few highlights. My friends, God is at work. Make no mistake about it. He is on the move and we are so humbled and excited to be joining Him in His Kingdom work.
The last Sunday of June was such an amazing day in the life of this ministry. My ministry partner, Stefanie, and I attend two different churches. That Sunday morning we had two of our friends from the clubs attend with us, one at my church and one with Stef at hers. And the children of another friend also came for children’s church. It was quite a day! Three families were represented there and they got to be reminded that there is hope and no matter what they’ve experienced in life, Jesus cares and is deeply in love with them. We also had another opportunity to show them that we care and that we want to walk with them on this journey if they will allow us.
We’re having a baby shower Wednesday night for one of our precious friends whose baby is due in August. We can’t wait to show her the love of Jesus by helping to supply some of her physical needs. One of the things that continually amazes me is how many of these women look us in the eye with big tears streaming down their faces and tell us they’ve never had anyone care about them before. No one has ever come alongside them to help. Wow. That changes for these women now in the Name of Jesus!
We are excited about new jobs, new promotions and new apartments! God is redeeming and working miracles in the lives of these women. If you would like to be involved in helping this vital ministry please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our Stripped Free Facebook Page. There is so much that is needed. We need prayers for the women and ourselves. Pray for a deepening in our relationships with them, that they would begin to really believe the God of the universe is madly in love with them and that they matter.
We also need financial resources. If you feel God nudging your heart to give, we hope you will consider it. We are currently working with three women who are seeking new employment and new places to live. The more women who leave that lifestyle and begin their journey with Jesus, the greater our financial needs will become. Many of you have been so generous already and we thank you for the gifts you’ve donated that we take into the clubs each month, the clothing and toiletries for a mom-of-three in need and for the constant prayers. If you would like to sew financially into this ministry you can do that by mailing a check made out to Tabor Ministries to:

Thank you so much for reading these updates and for taking this journey with us! We thank God for each of you!
