We never get tired of looking at this room! If you have yet to see it, this is one of our laundry rooms. Some of our women painted it about 10 years ago, and we haven’t changed it since. And yes, the phone is still there.
This Is How I Know God
He gave me a powerful message recently that involved prayer, church, decades of ministry and 3 women. The mayor of Fresno schedules quarterly prayer events at different churches and recently my church, First Presbyterian, was blessed to be the host. Other churches with a variety of worship styles were there, and it was a really incredible evening.
I was asked to offer a prayer for women and children in our city, and of course I included the kinds of situations that so many Evangel Home women are in. I also prayed about the Home’s decades of ministry to women and the need to continue.
At the end of the evening I was preparing to leave when a woman came up to me and simply looked in my eyes for a minute. I said, “Ruby?” This was a beautiful woman who graduated from CrossRoads in 1989, struggled to make it, and at one point after leaving us had tattoos put on her neck. The woman now holding my eye had no more tattoos. And she had come with her church to pray.
As we were hugging, a young woman suddenly appeared wanting to greet me. She left Evangel Home a few weeks ago without finishing her program. But on this night she had come with her church to pray.
Now there were three of us hugging and another woman, with 4 children clinging to her, came up to my side. “MiLinda!” How are you? She graduated in 2008. Now she had come with her church to pray.
This is how I know God.
