In an increasingly unstable world,
hope is still the most important thing.
This month, we are sharing some of our “hope highlights” from the last 4 weeks.
May these short stories bring you hope.
God at work on the inside
Chelsie is teaching alongside SITGM WIT Program Manager Kathy inside Oklahoma County Detention Center.
These women are addressing issues such as anger management, co dependency and addiction.
Chelsie is a Women in Transition curriculum graduate. This means, while serving time in Oklahoma county, Chelsie attended classes just like these, taught by Kathy and other SITGM WIT volunteers.
Now, Chelsie has been set free, both spiritually and physically. And is back inside, but this time, encouraging other women.
"I am extremely grateful to spend time with those women," Chelsie says. "It's a huge blessing for me to step back into that building and get to remember how far God has brought me."
Jill’s Stand in the Gap small group celebrates her Women in Transition graduation together! Watch Jill’s God Sighting here.
Faith says her team is like a real family and that she couldn’t have made it without their support and prayers.
Faith is currently in our Women in Transition program, where she meets with her small group of mentors twice a month.
With living in Clinton Oklahoma, Faith has no biological family. So, here she is out to eat with her Stand in the Gap family who has come to mean everything to her 💜
Life is all about connection - to God and to others. This is why all Stand in the Gap programs strive to provide a Godly community to each person we serve.
New Women in Transition Launch
Here is a screenshot of Sarah's social media post about her NEW Women in Transition small group! This new team started in Comanche, Oklahoma at Heather's Hope. The Stand in the Gap mentors are all repeat volunteers. We are believing for BIG things for Sarah and her team in the next 12 months. Welcome to Stand in the Gap Ministries, Sarah!
We love celebrating program graduations!

Laughing our way into 2022

Here they learned what motivates each of them through the Enneagram. "The diversity of our group has made our time together interesting, entertaining, and inspiring," Joan says.
During a monthly Women in Transition meeting where our staff meets in the middle, between Tulsa and Oklahoma City, God blessed us in Stroud, Oklahoma...
Our server: “Is your name Kathy Peacock? Did you teach Women in Transition at Mabel Bassett?"
Our server: “I attended your class, and I am doing very well now. I am about to be a manager of this restaurant!”
This my friends is what we, at Stand in the Gap, call a God Sighting. A moment in our day when we SEE God working around us.
