i am ENOUGH
 
Y'all! We  are  truly blessed to get to see how the i am ENOUGH program is being used around the world! The Alma Family Center in U g anda is doing some amazing things in their country and for families they work with. 



Head Leaders Planning Session in Uganda

We recently received word that they were training over 120 head leaders, as they are called there, in the i am ENOUGH program. This includes leaders from government, primary, secondary and technical institutions. They all participated in a planning session to empower youth to realize their potential and worth.
 
We are grateful God allows us to peek into the work He is doing around the world and that He chooses to use Still Waters in the ways He does!


Kaufman County Schools
We are in full swing preparing for the i am ENOUGH program presentations throughout our Kaufman County Schools for 2018-2019.

We ask that you continue to pray for this program and the impact it is having on communities and students around the world!

North Texas Giving Day (NTGD)
 
NTGD is a one day only, online fundraising event for North Texas non-profit organizations.

On this specific day, Still Waters supporters (Givers of HOPE) had the opportunity to give a gift of hope for those we serve in Kaufman County.  It was an exciting FUNdraising event that kept us on the edge of our seats!

This year, we were beyond blessed by a generous ministry friend (who wants to remain anonymous) with a $10,000 matching grant.   Thanks to this matching grant donor and every Giver of HOPE, we were able to FAR exceed our goal this year.

From the bottom of our hearts... Thank You!!!


 
Care Net  

We have had a great experience in Atlanta; met a lot of new friends for LIFE and was able to spend time with some of our friends who partner with us in spreading the i am ENOUGH message.

It was an extra gift to hear Louie Giglio speak on Psalm 23 and how God leads us besides Still Waters.  ❤️

Thank you  Care Net for having us and thank you Atlanta for being good to us!
