The Monday after Easter we were off work, so David and I spent the day driving around the Ferguson-Florissant area looking for places to plant a church.
Whenever I drive down those streets, I have to bring a certain amount of courage because the memories come flooding back. That’s where I lived when I was abused.
That’s where the police knew my name and tried to protect me. That’s where I lived when my rib was broken and the disc in my neck was herniated.
That’s the area where I became homeless because my home wasn’t safe anymore. That’s where I had to file bankruptcy. That’s where my house was foreclosed on because my ex-husband was spending all our money on drugs.
I remember what HOPELESSNESS feels like.
But I’m not going to allow the desperate feelings that I felt then to keep me from going back and ministering to the people who need help, now!
In fact, the devil knew 25 years ago that I’d be coming back. That’s why he tried to make me NEVER want to return.
But things are DIFFERENT, now! This time, I’m bringing GOD with me!
God has BIG PLANS for the people in the Ferguson-Florissant community! He’s going to use Faith Church to resurrect their hopes and dreams in the very place where it looked like they died.

Jesus is ALIVE! Hope is alive… and whatever is dead in your life can be resurrected!
Do you have something, right now, that you want God to resurrect? Agree, by showing us a raised hand emoji.
