This is a sample of the bags I make when preparing to take personal hygiene items to women’s shelters.
This photo and the one below this paragraph are samples of the items we put in the bags we give away. Bath soap, deodorant, powder, toilet paper, tooth brushes and toothpaste, Bible literature, lotion, key chains with hearts on them, socks, earrings, scarves, Bibles, and whatever else we can give. We also do arts and crafts with the women in the shelters, to kind of take their minds off of their current situation.
Out Of A Pure Heart Ministries is a Ministry under Refuge of GOD Ministries (Bishop Gerald W. Scott). Out of A Pure Heart Ministries was birthed during a very difficult time in our lives. My husband and I were living in motels because we had been evicted out of our home due to my husband falling down the steps and breaking his hip. While in the motel, one day we went to the Library and the Holy Spirit spoke to my spirit and said "Out Of A Pure Heart". Out of A Pure Heart Ministries also has a ministry within it called Women Broken/Women Whole. Out Of A Pure Heart Ministries ministers to people who are homeless by providing seasonal clothing and shoes; food, and money. Women Broken/Women Whole's focus is on women who have been physically and or/ emotionally abused. As a woman who has dealt with emotional and physical abuse as a result of being in foster care and unhealthy, unholy relationships, I know all too well about the pain these women suffer. We minister love, forgiveness and the Word of GOD to these women who also, in many cases, are substance abusers and suffer from fear, anxiety and low self-esteem.
