One afternoon we were standing in the Parking Lot of the Smith Center (where Jacob’s Well meets) at 602 Looney Ave.  We were talking with others getting ready to go out on the street.  As we were talking, a truck and trailer pulled up along side the curb.  The trailer was loaded with lawn equipment.  A lady stepped out of the truck, and walked up the hill toward us.  When she got close enough to us, so that we could hear what she was saying, she said “I want to Thank you” .  We said, “What did we do?”  She then shared her story with us…….

TearI was on the street for 15 years.  One night a group of men took me into a field, raped me, and beat me nearly to death. I laid in that field for 3 days, when someone from Jacob’s Well found me.  They got help for me.  They gave me a safe place to stay, they gave me spiritual guidance, they loved me.  I have gone through the recovery program in which I was given a job in lawn care.  I am now the supervisor over two teams for the Mayor’s office for Blight Control.  I have my own apartment, I pay my bills, and I am proud to be able to do so. Thank you for doing what you do, Praise GOD!

As we stood there listening to her story, we knew exactly why we were doing what we are doing.  May the Lord continue to Bless Jacob’s Well.  May we all be the Hand’s and Feet of Jesus.
