Listen to this wonderful student feedback from the Women of Hope Church Service FOCUS provides on Tuesday Nights at Bledsoe County.
Kayla - I’ve been saved for the 1st time in 29 years.
Kelsey - Tuesday nights are my favorite. I look forward to praise and worship at the Women of Hope Service. The teacher gives a message that we can relate to our lives—even in prison. She gives so much time and effort to bring Jesus into our hearts and I couldn’t be more thankful. Being here can make you feel intense shame, but knowing I have a Heavenly Father who loves me no matter my past gives me hope. I want to thank y’all for the work that goes into FOCUS Ministries.
Tasha - I was recently shipped to Bledsoe and was very surprised and thankful when I attended their FOCUS Programs. They are great J I love the teachers and their love for our Father. These ladies are truly inspiring to me. I hope to be a minister one day. Thanks so much for the workbooks, books, and study supplies. I can’t even express in words how much that means. Keep coming back. You guys are saving people. <3
Kerri - My experience with the FOCUS Ministries Women of Hope church service is great. It is teaching me that even though people make mistakes, they can be a new person through Christ. There is always hope, no matter what is going on in your life.
Sandra - When I first started FOCUS Ministries programs, I was pretty much lost and there was so much I did not know or understand. I was afraid to ask questions, thinking, “I should know that” or “I will sound dumb.” But we were encouraged to ask questions and learn through our workbooks and books. I became comfortable because I was learning and I had to take that step out in faith. God tells me He loves me and He will transform me into who He needs me to be. Praise God!
Melissa - I feel my spirit is growing closer to Jesus. Coming to FOCUS Ministries programs keeps my focus on Jesus, rather than on my circumstances. I have a growing hunger for Jesus and His Word.
Amanda - The last few months, I was going through some things and completely stopped coming to service, but last month I finally decided I needed to come and worship at the Women of Hope service. When I did, my heart opened up and the fog lifted off of me. Since last week, I have been out of the bed, no more crying, and I feel great. I feel like the depression is gone. I feel like a new person. I love Jesus!
Elverta - When I came to the FOCUS Ministries Women of Hope Service for the first time, I was really down, but during the church service, I felt like the teaching was pointed in my direction. FOCUS made me feel comfortable and let me be who I am. I felt like the Holy Spirit was talking to me.
Dana - I was having a really bad day, not planning to come to service and just a couple minutes before time to walk out of the pod, I had a huge intense urge to come to the FOCUS Ministries church service and I’m so glad I did. I felt like everything talked about was directed to me and it completely lifted my spirits and filled me with happiness and peace. So, this month, I plan to come to all 4 Tuesday night services!
Please continue to pray for these wonderful ladies, and all the other women FOCUS serves behind the walls.
