On Thursday, November 20th, with the support of friends and family watching, eight Relational Ministry participants got up in front of class to receive their graduation certificates. A bittersweet ceremony commenced, with each person giving thanks to all in attendance and sharing briefly about how the program had personally impacted their lives.
This class endured one of the more trying seasons we’ve seen in Relational Ministry. Despite financial hardships, marriage issues, illnesses, and deaths in the family, all eight stayed the course, showing up week in and week out for twelve months. They invested in learning about financial management, organization, building healthy relationships, and nutrition. As a result many of them could reflect back and see God’s goodness every step of the way.
To cap off the evening, several classmates brought in some delectable food items to be shared by all! Love INC is proud to say goodbye to one of their most memorable classes.
“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”- James 1:12
