Who We Are (Fall 2020 Campaign)

Many times when describing Hope4Healing, I think it comes across more as a program or extra work instead of the opportunity that it represents.  My fellow Hope4Healing team members and I come from some very different backgrounds but have two things that draw us together: a love for God, and a desire to help others!  My path to where I am now is probably no different than many of your own paths.  I grew up on a small farm in Iowa in a Christian home.  I was competitive in my youth; playing soccer, basketball, and baseball.  At that time I didn’t think much about those around me, but living on a farm I spent more time with family and livestock than I did in the community.

Family and the Sweetness of Fall

This time of year reminds me of getting together with family; and when family gets together, there is always memories of mom, grandma, and extended family baking and cooking wonderful food.  It is always interesting how food tends to bring people together.  I hope that the “sweet treats” I have been baking is helping to bring families closer together.  It has been hard this year when we have been asked to social distance; but family always seems to find a way.

Did you know that in supporting Hope4Healing, you are also helping families?  I was told that in 2019 Hope4Healing helped with over 4,000 request across the state of Iowa, and that most of the request that come in impact families.  Sometimes it is the simple things in life that separate us; food, shelter, and clothing.  Hope4Healing helps bring families together as well by helping to find the things that are causing families to struggle.  I can’t imagine enjoying this time of year without family, and am thankful that in some small way I can help bring other families together as well.

“Always Act In A Way To Do Good”

By Melissa Keller

After several months of closure due to Covid-19 restrictions, I was excited that one of favorite Chinese Restaurants had finally opened its doors again.  As we were preparing to leave the restaurant, the waiter brought our fortune cookies to the table, and as I opened my cookie, I smiled as I read the words “Act Always in a way to do Good”.
