A Heifer for The Hope of Survivors—Samantha Nelson

A Heifer for THOSDear Friends,

What does a heifer have to do with The Hope of Survivors? Let me tell you!

A few weeks ago, a cattle rancher and his wife told us they had made a pledge to God to donate one of their heifers to The Hope of Survivors to help support the ministry. They wanted to make sure the victims we help would continue to receive the support they need.

They asked us to pray that God would bless the sale of the cow and we did. Last week, two checks arrived—one for the amount of the sale of the cow, and one from the auction house owners who also donated to support The Hope of Survivors. It was a blessing and a miracle, as no one expected the amount to be what it was. Praise God!

As it happened, the ministry had some unexpected expenses to cover, as well as a few victims on the sponsorship list waiting for sponsors so they could attend an in-house program at the Renewal Center. Now that support has been provided. Glory be to God!

If you ever wonder what YOU can do to help The Hope of Survivors, it is worthwhile to think outside the box, so to speak. I never would have guessed someone would offer to sell a cow to support The Hope of Survivors, but I am so thankful this precious couple chose to do something to help victims. Maybe you have something to sell that could help support victims? Think about it...

With tax time coming to a close and refunds arriving in the mail (at least for some of you), maybe you could pray and ask God if He would have you support The Hope of Survivors with a one-time or recurring monthly donation, or perhaps in some other way so we can continue to provide the help, hope and healing victims need?

Thank you for your prayerful consideration and support.

God bless you,
Samantha Nelson
