Just wanted to check in with you and share a couple of announcements and a prayer request! We have been SO overwhelmed at how many new volunteers have been donating hats + port pillows + cocoon sets to 818 Ministries in 2019! We have volunteers in 14 states now and we're so thankful to have extra hands to create beautiful, handmade gifts for patients fighting serious illnesses. You have NO idea the impact of your time and talent - thank you!
I have great news! I (Rebecca Dotson - Founder, 818 Ministries) am getting married next month and will be moving to Brookhaven, MS to follow my fiance, Dustin George, who pastors Easthaven Baptist Church. We will be announcing a new shipping address soon for donations as soon as we have one! We covet your prayers as we step into this new season of life!
Prayer Request: Barbara
A friend from MD Anderson Cancer Center and recipient of one of our hats, Barbara, shared with us what a blessing her hat has been during her cancer treatment. She reached out to say thank you and request a couple more hats of a similar size. We asked how we could specifically pray for her journey and if we could share her story. She said, "Know I am a Christian and have prayed frequently for the person who crocheted my cap. Please pray that the Lord ‘s peace, grace and mercy remain with me. He has not failed me on my year and half journey. All His promises are true. Be blessed!"
Please join us in prayer over Barbara's journey and know that we have sent her more hats to enjoy as well as a letter of encouragement!
Again, a big thank you to each of you. As you can see, God is using you to encourage patients all over the US who are fighting serious illnesses!
Cheering for you,
