Promise 23 continues to grow each year, but this year has been huge! And we are just getting started! When we started out, we had 2 session leaders, 2 horses we were using, a bookkeeper and a Great Big God who had plans for our little ministry!We are very excited to now have 6 trained session leaders (and one more waiting for the next training session), an amazing bookkeeper/financial guru, a 5 member Prayer Covering Team, an IT/Tech genius, and many, many other people who have shown their support through prayers, financial support, asking about the program regularly, and getting involved at work parties, etc. We are SO thankful for every single person who supports Promise 23 however they can.
Last fall, we moved to a new home base for ministry times. We now have the use of a lovely covered arena, which is such a blessing here in the Pacific Northwest! A huge thank you to Ed and Mary Beth Teigrob for generously allowing us to use their facility!
This spring, we will also begin once a month sessions for Engedi mothers who have been reunited with their children and also for Engedi ladies who have graduated Phase 1 and aren’t able to make our regularly scheduled sessions. We are really excited to work with some children and share the horses with them.
Our prayers for a website designer have been answered!!! We are thrilled to have Vanessa Smith join our team as our IT/tech person. She has worked tirelessly to not only get our website up and running, but also to get a newsletter formatted! Vanessa works at the Light of the World Prayer Center as worship director, and has also agreed to be our point person for the Promise 23 Prayer Covering Team. We are thanking God for meeting so many needs with this sweet girl!
