Star of Hope is a homeless shelter and transitional living center in Houston designed to help men and women find hope in Christ and get back on their feet. There are currently 86 women living in the transitional home (35 singles and 51 with families) and we have an opportunity to bless them with a Valentine’s Gift to remind these sisters of His love during a difficult chapter in their stories.
Each gift bag will be decorated and will contain a copy of Laura’s study Capture My Heart, Lord along with chocolate and a mug or flower. To cover the cost of the gifts, we are asking women in the Sacred Story community to consider giving $10 per woman to provide a gift as a reminder of God’s love for her. Our goal is to raise $860 for the funds to provide a gift for all 86 sisters. We are over two-thirds of the way there with $150 left. Praise God! A small group Bible study will kick off, led by Laura which will last from the end of February to late May.
Here are ways you can take part.
Give! Donate $10 for one gift, $30 for three, $80 for eight, etc. Follow this link to contribute.
Pray! For the women, for God’s financial provision, for God’s Word to bear fruit in the women’s lives
Help assemble and pass out bags at Star of Hope! We need 2-3 volunteers to help Laura on Wednesday evening, February 1st, at 6:30pm at Star of Hope’s monthly community meeting where the women will receive their gifts and hear about the upcoming study. Please reach out to Laura via email to let her know your interest.
Be part of the women’s lives through the study! Laura is praying for 2-4 women to attend the study once or twice a month on Monday evenings from 6:45 – 8:00pm to sow into the women’s lives and be prayer support as the study unfolds. Please reach out to Laura via email to gather more information.
