#892 - Jenny's Hope Volunteers

When Daniel first envisioned a place of ministry where people from all walks of life felt welcomed, we hoped many from FBC would get involved and adopt the ministry as their own. As always, God did more than we could ever dream or imagine. Jenny's Hope has been open for over 2.5 years now, and so many lives have been changed through the obedience of many servants who are there week in and week out. I'm thankful Daniel was able to continue preaching there every Thursday night this past fall. In mid-December, we finally came to a point when we had to say goodbye (really, "see ya later") to all of the sweet people that meet at Jenny's Hope each week. They combined a post-Thanksgiving celebration with a going-away party for us, and it was so much fun! Delicious food, fun and yummy desserts, fellowship, worship, and a challenge from Daniel made it a night to remember.
I've never had my picture on a cake before!
Delicious cakes and the most amazing peppermint punch!
Of course, our kiddos were hanging out over by the sweets :)

Love these people so much!
This lady - Beverly Nichols - is absolutely precious. I am so proud of her! Her sweet husband went to be with Jesus about 8 months ago, and she has jumped in serving at Jenny's Hope. I know Rickey would be elated! She planned and cooked (with help) the awesome meal. Oh, and she has a full-time job, too!

Jenny singing "Sweet Little Jesus Boy" - it wouldn't be the Christmas season without hearing this!

Mrs. Penny - words can't express how much she has meant to our family over the past 7 years. She has prayed for us, encouraged us, challenged us, laughed with us, cried with us, and the list goes on. This is a precious woman of God right here. Proud to call her friend!
And the Jenny's Hope namesake...just love her! I'm thankful for the hours we got to spend together as accountability partners. Can't imagine life without her! And I don't have to...her daughter and son-in-law live a block away from us in Bolivar :) We'll get to see her in less than 2 weeks!       

I'm not sure that everyone made it into the picture, but we sure tried!
Some of the faithful leaders
Since we left, Jenny's Hope has continued to meet every Thursday night without skipping a beat. The faithful servants are taking turns teaching/preaching, and I know God is receiving all the glory. I can't wait to meet all of the people in Heaven one day that are there as a result of Jenny's Hope. I know there will be many!
