A facilitators feedback from Bledsoe's Tuesday night church service is a blessing to the hearer. Heather leads the Women of Hope class and has an average of 32 attendees! She has shared about the encouragement that comes from seeing the ladies encourage and pray for another. She said one woman had just received some devastating news was encouraged by her friends to worship through the pain. To not allow grief to keep her AWAY from God, but instead, draw her TOWARD Him. As the women stood with tears streaming down her face, her friends held her arms up in worship! Like Moses in Exodus 17, this precious women was not alone in her battle.
"As a leader, I believe that if I'm not empowering those under my care to succeed without my involvement, that I am not leading well. So, to see these ladies minister to each other on their own was very satisfying. They will remember that Jesus changed them from the inside out and brought hope to a very dark place. That's just one more thing I have to be grateful for!"
