When we first met Theresa last year, she was still reeling from her husband’s unexpected death. Ken had passed in 2016 and in those first two years as a widow, she found herself buried beneath a “honey-do list” literally three pages long. She was strapped financially without his income, and because she is unable to receive his pension until 2022, she felt hopeless. Theresa was working tirelessly to provide for her daughter, Casie, who has Spina Bifida, and her granddaughter who lived with her at the time.
Enter YOU, RiverLife champion! Because of your faithfulness in offering your time, talent and treasure, Theresa is a NEW person today!
Through several churches sending serve teams and many loving individuals who came alongside this precious family, the long list of to-do’s has been replaced with the assurance that they are not alone! More importantly, Theresa and Casie not only found hope in their community, but they also found renewed faith in God! Last Sunday, they were both baptized and embraced a local church as their faith family.
As Theresa shared the impact of this celebration with me, she said she felt that Ken was with her as she wore a necklace that holds some of Ken’s remains as she was baptized. The peace I see in her is unmistakable.
Thank you for sowing into RiverLife so that we may see a transformation like this!
