Redeem – Clothing Closet Testimony

October 29, 2021

Redeem - Clothing Closet Testimony A Pair of Shoes A woman, 60 days sober and safe, staying at the Trinity House women’s shelter came in for shoes. She was very anxious about finding some in time to start her new job at Goodwill the next day.  She said she had been looking and had even gotten some at another clothing closet only to have them tear up in the washing machine.  What was she going to do?! She had very little money left!  I asked her if she had prayed and asked the Holy Spirit to help her find her some shoes, and she looked at me funny and said no.  I told her that He cares about what we care about.  We prayed a short, heart-felt prayer for shoes before she went to the back to look.  ….Now y’all know our Lord…. As she was looking, my mechanic’s secretary came in with two bags of donations. The Lord prompted me to open them up immediately instead of putting them with the other bags to be sorted next week.As I rummaged through the bags, guess what I found??? Yep you guessed it….SHOES! Beautiful brand new puma shoes that fit her like a glove!  She was so happy! I believe with all my heart that the Lord was showing her that he’s a personal God, and he cares for her and sees her….. what a loving God!  Cindy Gardner, Clothing Closet Coordinator If you would like to donate your time, winter clothing, or sew into the Clothing Closet, email cindy@take-the-city.com....

When she went this past time, God answered a woman’s prayer. Dasi and a new friend ventured to her neighborhood. After they parked at her house, they prayed and asked the Lord where they should go. They began walking and simultaneously were drawn to a house nearby. Dasi and her friend knocked on the door and what happened next was God and God alone. The woman yelled, “Come in!” To her surprise, Dasi found the door to be unlocked and slowly opened it. They walked down the center hallway and found the woman in the kitchen. The woman had been praying all night and had asked God to give her a sign that He was there and cared about her. Dasi and her friend introduced themselves and explained that they were there to pray for her. The woman grasped Dasi’s friend’s hand and responded through tears, “I know Jesus loves me, because God sent you both here to me today.” The three women sat and exchanged stories. The Lord’s power began to fill the room as they prayed for each other. The women connected and let go; they wept together and rejoiced as the Lord moved in their hearts. The Lord ministered to each woman with specific words of encouragement, and for the lady of the...

I learned about Take The City through a young lady at our church about 5 years ago and after going on my first outreach, I was HOOKED. I fell in love with the family environment, organic evangelism, and genuine love that I experience here.  The training, connections, and opportunities that I’ve been blessed with here have been nothing short of life-changing!  God bless my TTC family.
