Hi Mrs Pett,

My name is Christina Smith and I am sending this email to thank you SO much for having single women in mind and in heart, and for your ministry to us.

I am the proud recipient of the "You Want to Be A Speaker" Workshop materials!!! I couldn't believe I won!!!

I have been a single mom for the last 6-7 years after leaving an abusive (towards my son) marriage . God has blessed so that my son just finished his first year of college last month—the son people said would end up to be nothing because he had no father around! The son that got stuck in the midst of cross fire and was shot in his head this past January and went back to school in less than a week afterwards! Wow… God has been good!! The list of His faithfulness goes on!! I also have a daughter also that is 13 and is every bit as blessed as my son!

I am a single mom, full- time employee and I am attending nursing school—to be completed in December. This has been a mountain climbing experience—a lot of time and energy put into this!

I plan to use my testimony of how very faithful Our God has been in taking me along this hard, frustrating at times but covered by His blood road!! The workshop materials will DEFINITELY assist me while standing before many women and sharing my testimony by the power of the Holy Spirit!!

I am so very grateful to God for women like you that are reaching out to other women and blessing them. It is my desire and dream to be able to have a place for women to come to for the rebuilding of their lives—holistically. This place will be one that they can be restored spiritually first, then they will learn parenting skills to get their children back if needed, employment skills, assistance w/a car, etc. Basically all of the things that God did for me—and I plan to be a vessel to do for them!

Thank you so much!! So much!! I know you don't know me but I just wanted to let you know that your ministry has touched my life and it will be used for Kingdom up building!!! I am praying that your ministry continue to flourish and that prosperity would reign so that you can continue to pour into and cause change to enter the lives of women from all backgrounds.

In Christ's love always,
Christina Smith

Many, many thanks to Grace N' Action for supporting my January 2011 trip to Belize. As a ventriloquist, I have been doing puppet shows in the schools of Belize since 2005.

In 2009 I met Tuty Kalisek, found and director of Children of Hope Foundation, a school sponsorship program. She talks with the parents of each child before acceptance and monitors progress throughout the school year. Also, Tuty bakes a cake for each child's birthday and makes each a goody bag from the sponsor. This year we are sponsoring 150 children grades K-12. Many of these children live in 1 parent families, so we often also help with food and medical needs.
