"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers."
Twice this week, myself and a few of the other HoM board members have been taught (and charged) with the verses from Acts 2:41-47. In these verses, Luke explains the lives of those in the early church. These new believers set the perfect example of what it means to live in community and to love one another. As I re-read these verses over and over again, I pray that this is exactly the community and love that every woman that enters the House of Mary will experience. I am blessed by the other board members and the experiences we share. I can't wait until we get to show that same love at HoM. Though we will offer shelter, classes, and other essentials, our mission must be to bring others closer to the Lord. We are still far from our goal of building houses, but we can and will use this time to pray for those that will come once our doors open. Please join me in praying that many will be redeemed and restored in Christ through HoM. Love to you all.
"And every day the Lord added to them those who were being saved."
