We had an incredible month at SYM.  There were so many moments that pointed to our obedience of following God’s plan to be at this exact location for His divine plan to be fulfilled. I wanted to share an encouraging card we received from Kaitlin:

“I came into your office on Tuesday, September 20th. This was a new experience for me as I have never needed or had to have any help supporting my family or even myself. As I mentioned, me and my family are in an unusual financial bind and I didn’t know where else to turn. God led me to ya’ll and for that, I am so thankful. I cannot thank you enough for the financial assistance you provided me with. Not only that, but I want to thank you for being the happy faces I needed to see, the encouraging words I needed to hear, and the sincere vibe that you truly care about others. Dennis, thank you for being kind and for making me feel welcome. John, thank you for your encouraging words, they mean the world to me. Thank you also for the Bible. I already have begun reading it and I look forward to strengthening my relationship with God through His word. While I earnestly pray that I never need assistance of this sort again, please know that y'all made a difference in me and that I will be praying for you all and the organization. Thank you, thank you, thank you. With love, Kaitlin”

Thank you for taking the time to read this and know that we see many people like Kaitlin each day.  Without your support and partnership, moments like these would not be possible.  But with God, all things are possible!
