Hope You Had a Great Thanksgiving Friends!
While life can be challenging, there are numerous things to be joyful about and thankful for, no matter your circumstance. I constantly remind the girls to come up with at least one thing that they can be grateful for and to concentrate on that… and they do! I am so thankful for what we’ve established at the Treasure House and when I asked the girls to share their feedback on living here, they gladly shared their responses which were captured in the photo below. Wishing you and your family a wonderful week of thanks and giving.

Stories From Inside The Treasure House:
Beach Trip: This fall, we were able to take some of the older girls to visit the beach. These young women have been such a big help at the house, whether it be helping the littles ones get ready for school in the morning, changing diapers or, simply holding a tiny hand as we cross a street. I deeply desired to celebrate them and, a trip to the beach was the perfect way to do so. While there was some initial trepidation in getting into the water (for the majority, this was their first time they had ever seen the ocean), by the end of our four days, they were swimming like fish. Thank you Reliance Community, we were so very blessed to take this trip!
“Lulu”: We had planned to welcome a new seven year old that we will call “Lulu”. Both Lulu and her five year old sister had devastatingly been the subjects of sexual trauma and exploitation to the extent that Lulu’s younger sister had been hospitalized for rape. That said, during the time of transition to have Lulu come to the Treasure House, the government unfortunately lost contact with both sisters. I don’t want to blame everything on COVID, but 2020 has given us an increase in problems with the government that we have just never experienced in the past. Our prayer is to see the sisters safe and reunited. We would sincerely appreciate your prayers concerning this situation.
