God has allowed us to embark upon a new Ministry called, "The Forgotten Women."
You are probably wondering what is this Ministry all about.
Ministry is based upon Women that have been casted down or having a difficult time fitting into society. We are or were single moms rearing our children alone. If you notice, I said, "single moms." It is because I too, were placed in the,
"single moms" catagory for many years before God sent my husband, Mr. Lee Andrew Hooks into my life, 38+ years ago.
Mr. Hooks, came
into my life when I was battling cancer and trying to raise my child alone. By the grace of God he helped nuture me back to health. He has also, decided to coach me along the way in this particular Ministry because of the challenges I encountered
as a single parent.
As I began to research some of the women in the Bible that came close to what we were or are going through.
I looked at, Rizpah in the Book of 2nd Samuel 3:7; 21:8-11.
Rizpah, suffered greater tribulation than any woman in the Old Testament.
Rizpah's name has come to mean intense suffering, such as only a devoted mother can endure.
Today, we can gaze with admiring wonder
at Rizpah's love and patience. And what faith! She believed that sooner or later God would deliver.
Rizpah in her suffering,
typifies thousands of wives, daughters, and sisters, sitting at the bedside of loved ones. Silently and alone, many of us bear sorrow, just like Rizpah.
Therefore, I am seeking women to come to the table to stratagize by the grace of God on a heartfelt Ministry with me to reach-out to help others.
By faith, I know without a doubt that we are stronger together...
Will you please pray for us as we carry this Ministry to the next level?
