Fewer things bring greater joy to Love INC than an announcement that one our clients have gained employment. It is especially exciting when the events surrounding the good news are the direct result of a special relationship the client has formed with one of our volunteers.

Recently our Tuesday intake volunteer, Nicole, was making her way through the office when she noticed her former Relational Ministry mentee, “Audrey,” redeeming an incentive voucher at the reception desk. It had been a while since they had connected with one another and before too many words could be shared, “Audrey” gleefully proclaimed that she had got a job at a nearby retail store. Several months earlier, Audrey and Nicole had walked through the job searching and application process for this very job in Relational Ministry classes! Now they were crossing paths and enjoying the answer to a prayer they offered together many months ago.

“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!”- Psalm 90:17
