My name is Louise, I am writing this letter to share a little bit about my story. My 12-year-old daughter was a victim of a sexual crime for 3 years from a family friend. We found out about this in November 2017. I knew my daughter would need a lot of help over the next few months and even years to come to bring her through this. It has been a long 8 months to say the least. We just ended trial and prosecution and it has been time to move on. At the beginning of this year, 2018, I contacted my pastor in desperate need of finding counseling for my daughter. Knowing how expensive it is and not always covered under insurance I just had to leave it all in God’s hands. I knew He would direct our paths and HE would make a way. The morning I called my pastor he knew exactly who I should call. So, after hanging up with him, many tears later, I took it upon myself to call the counseling service he HIGHLY recommended. It was in a matter of moments; my tears came back. I placed a phone call to HOPE COUNSELING in Winter Garden and it was within minutes I knew God directed my path. I called very upset and just inquiring about prices and services and shared just a little bit about what we have been going through. The amazing lady who answered the phone, took all my information and within minutes, literally, returned my call to share with me that we have been awarded a scholarship. Tears begin to fall again. I knew God would always make a way but sometimes when you are going through rough times you just wonder how. I know Jer 29;11 tells us He has a plan for our life and I just needed to rest assured He’s got me 😉
So, with that being said, since February, my daughter, has been going faithfully a couple times a month to see the most amazing counselor God could have EVER given to us. This was ONLY possible by the scholarship and faithful servants who follow the hearts of Jesus and supply needs to families who just can’t afford this but was so desperate for it. This has been such a BLESSING to my family for the last several months. The counselor has helped my daughter overcome one of the worst things any child could ever go through. As a mom, I wanted to just help so bad but didn’t know what else to do but God knew all along. She is such a special person and we will forever be grateful for her.
I honestly don’t even know where to begin with thank you’s. I am SO VERY THANKFUL for people who listen to Jesus when HE speaks to their hearts. Thank you to this amazing scholarship who has helped so many families, especially mine. The blessing from Jesus continues to pour over my daughter. She is growing stronger, one day at a time. If it wasn’t for amazing people who donates for others who just can’t, I honestly don’t know where we would be right now. I pray God blessed you 10 times full for helping so many others. It truly is one of the greatest blessing you could ever give someone. Continue to follow the whispers of Jesus because you have NO IDEA where the blessings go and how much people are truly grateful.
Hope Counseling is by far one of the greatest blessings God has provided to so many others. I am one thankful Momma.
