A Sisterly Mitzvah
May 18, 2020
“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” Philippians 4:12
Brooke has faced many times of plenty in her life. Unfortunately, over the past two years, she has endured times of need. And, that is why we are praying, you will be her “loving Sister” today by helping to provide this beautiful daughter of God and her two devoted sons during this incredible time of need.
Brooke works as a consultant in the IT industry. She is a single mom of two growing (and always hungry) boys. Sadly, last Spring she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
She maintained a positive attitude and turned to God on her path to recovery.
In January, she was strong enough to return to work. The business she contracted with was quickly impacted by COVID-19, which ended her engagement.
Brooke’s opportunity to provide for her children dissolved, but her optimism remains. “I didn’t make anything in 2019 and I made it through. The assistance from Esther 414, will help me make it through this second challenge.”
Brooke heard about The Esther 414 Foundation “for such a time as this” emergency relief grant through our partnership with Beliefnet. Together, along with you, we are helping single working moms and women entrepreneurs, like Brooke, who are in great need during this global pandemic.
This weeks Mitzvah challenge comes with a blessing. When you give a gift of $50 or more to provide support and emergency relief for our “Sisters in Need”, we’d like to bless you by sending our “For Such A Time As This” safety mask.
The women receiving your mitzvahs are women of faith. As Brooke shared, “we are your neighbors, mothers who want to work. We want to provide for our families. We appreciate everything and will be the ones who will give mitzvahs back to others when we are blessed with that opportunity.”
As a Modern-day Esther let us declare by our actions, and share the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
Together, we can make a true and measurable difference in the lives of our neighbors. Let's show our dear Sisters Christ-like love and how much we value and care for them.
2020 has been called the year of the mouth. Yet, we are required to wear masks in public places. Don't let your voice be silenced. Use this opportunity to share how through prayer and fasting God will intervene in our lives, ''for such a time as this!"
