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.
Moving on up!
Once released from Eddie Warrior Correctional Center, Melissa went to His House Outreach Ministries, a rehabilitation program for women newly released from prison.
From there she joined Stand in the Gap's Women in Transition program.
From there she became a leader at She Brews Coffee House in Claremore, Oklahoma.
Melissa has excelled! Those who know her say her best qualities are humility, integrity & teachable.

The SITGM team changed it for me
Remember Tisha? Here is an update on her journey!
Tisha has been out of prison for 22 months.
She has re-established a relationship with her three children, was promoted to a big role at She Brews Coffee House where she oversees wholesale, sales, and marketing, and started attending Rhema Bible College, to pursue her interest in missions.
“If you’ve never had someone believe in you, or encourage you, it’s powerful... It’s life-changing.
I prayed: Lord, I need support, and He answered.
The Stand in the Gap team changed it for me.”

Dancing with the Widows
Claremore Methodist Church hosted a Leaves and Laughter Widows Dinner this month that included games, live music, dinner and the latest episode of Dancing with the Stars on the big screen in the background.
"It was so good to gather again and just be together," volunteer Kristal said.
