These Ugandan orphans will soon have a sanitary indoor feeding facility that will also serve as a community center & spot for Bible studies & discipleship!

THANK YOU, Sisters!

The beautiful giving of your money, time and prayers will allow Orphan’s Heart to save lives, both physically and spiritually, in one of Uganda’s poorest villages.  May God multiply these gifts like the fishes and loaves!

No more cracking their hardboiled eggs in the red Ugandan dirt, the “least of these” will soon eat clean, nutritious meals, study the Bible, and enjoy bonding time with their entire village in the sanitary new feeding center your money will build!  May The Holy Spirit fill this beautiful,  new place!

Orphan’s Heart’s own Christi and Jerry Haag have invited any and ALL Sisters and their families to come serve in Uganda on a mission trip and see firsthand how God is using our funds and prayers!  Visit Orphan’s Heart and click on “Mission Trips” for details.
Additional congratulations to our 2 $10,000 Grant Winners! Every vote always counts, but this year our 3 finalists were ALL so well-loved that the votes were closer than ever!

Congratulations to:

The Life of a Single Mom

Project Red

Thank you to our 3 Finalists for opening our eyes to the beautiful work God is doing through your groups, and for letting us be a part of it!  We will continue to pray for you and those you serve.

In His love,

Carrie

Annual Gathering! It’s our 5-year Anniversary!!!

Invite anyone you think would like to experience THE SISTER PROJECT! We gather once each year to hear about the incredible, life-saving work of Jesus through our 3 grant-winning ministries: after hearing from all 3 ministries (plus an update from last year’s $80,000 winner), we’ll vote to award an $80,000 grant and 2 $10,000 grants!

Thursday, April 7th, 6:30 p.m.
Oak Hills Church YOUTH BUILDING (Large, free-standing building next door to Main Campus)
6929 Camp Bullis Rd, San Antonio 78256
(keep an eye out for an Evite and please use your Evite to RSVP for you and any guests)

Last year’s $80,000 Grant Winners, JESUS SAID LOVE, will update us on how The Lord has used your prayers and money given last year. They’ll also lead us in worship (if you haven’t yet seen them perform, you’re in for a soul-moving experience.)

PLEASE be in prayer for us to hear and follow God’s leading at The Gathering. May He continue to multiply our gifts of money, time and prayer with these ministries.

“Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed them, and broke them, and kept giving them to the disciples to set before the people. And they all ate and were satisfied; and the broken pieces which they had left over were picked up, twelve baskets full.”

Luke 9:16-17

In Him,
Carrie

Want to learn about the life-saving work of Jesus up close through incredible ministry applicants?

Then, JOIN our TSP Selection Committee by Oct. 23rd this year by e-mailing kelleyfitz@yahoo.com  Kelley will e-mail you back with additional details.

Only 3 meetings:
Nov. 12, 1:00-3:00 (must attend this meeting to vote on Grant Award Semifinalists)
Jan. 13, 12:00-3:00 (must attend BOTH final 2 meetings, 1/13 & 1/21, to vote on Grant Award Finalists)
Jan. 21, 12:00-3:00

Location…those who e-mail Kelley to join Selection Committee will be e-mailed the address of our meeting, but plan on somewhere along IH-10 corridor towards Boerne.  By popular demand, meeting times have been changed from evening to daytime.

Selection Committee is not only an incredibly encouraging way to serve hard-working applicants, but it’s a really fun way to get to know other women who are part of The Sister Project.  This year, we have numerous applicants whose ministries serve women  near and far.  By joining the Selection Committee, you will have the chance to learn all about the life-giving work of these ministries, review their long-term plans for sustainability, and hear some overwhelmingly beautiful stories of redemption.

 

Hope to see you there!

In Him,
Carrie

JESUS SAID LOVE!!!

“Shut UHHHHHHPPPPPP!” exclaimed JSL Co-founder Brett Mills, upon hearing that The Sister Project had awarded JSL this year’s $80,000 Grant.

Yep, a genuine & atypical response from what is certainly a genuine &  atypical ministry!

Husband/Wife Co-Founders Emily & Brett Mills shared with us at our Gathering last Thursday.

About JESUS SAID LOVE:

“We go into strip clubs across Texas, build relationships with dancers and club employees without strings attached, and connect them to community and spiritual resources.” 

“The more you’re around [people who need Jesus], the more you realize it’s not ‘them’ and ‘us’. We’re all just us.”

-Brett Mills

THANK  YOU, Sisters!  Your generous giving of your money, time and prayers will allow Jesus Said Love to completely renovate their newly-purchased “home base” in Waco, Texas.  Your money will build/remodel many things: rooms where healing for women who have recently broken free from the sex industry will take place, play therapy for the children of these women, a new kitchen where women will generate their own income, a LOVE retail space, and much more (see floor plan below.)  The Holy Spirit will HEAL women in this place.

Additional congratulations to our 2 $10,000 Grant Winners:

Adera Foundation – Ethiopia

Hill Country Mission for Health – Boerne/Comfort, TX
