H.O.P.E. Testimonial Video

“H.O.P.E. has changed my life. I remember the night I said I had learned to like myself. That was a totally foreign concept to me, but it had happened. It changed my whole way of thinking.”
(Shelly G.)

“H.O.P.E. has taught me that it’s all about God and not about me. God is God and I am not. Now, instead of asking ‘Why is this happening to me?’ I now ask, ‘Why is this happening for me.’”
(Steve C.)

“Before coming to H.O.P.E., I was horribly depressed and very angry. I felt lost. I desperately wanted to belong, to be part of a family. But H.O.P.E. has changed all that. I finally have what I’ve been longing for, people who love me and care about me and miss me if I’m gone. I have a family! I have a family to support and encourage me on life’s journey. Instead of desperately wanting to belong, I now desperately want to be used by God to help others know that there is hope.”
(Wendie G.)

“I learned that H.O.P.E. was a safe place where people accepted you for who you are. It helped me not be afraid to talk to people. I learned that God wanted me, He loves me unconditionally, and He has a plan for my life.”

“H.O.P.E. is not the closing of your eyes to the difficulty, the risk or the failure; it’s a trust that if I fail now I shall not fail forever and if I’m hurt I shall be healed. It’s a trust that God is good all the time, love is powerful, and the future is full of promises.”
(Adult H.O.P.E. group member who requested anonymity)

“I would sum up H.O.P.E. as a family, a body of people gathered to heal.”
(Eric N.)

“I am overjoyed about H.O.P.E. because H.O.P.E. is a message that can reach the masses. H.O.P.E. is an answer for the hopeless. H.O.P.E. is a place where you can know and understand that God cares.”
(Marie N.)

“H.O.P.E. is an awesome vision that all of us just need because we’re all hurting.”
(Charlie L.)

“As a man, I can come in and share my painful experiences and my wounds and my brothers and sisters in H.O.P.E. will validate those feelings, validate what I’m going through. Things that Satan would love for us to keep in the darkness can be brought out into the light where God can begin healing them. And you can totally feel the experience in that group.”
(Trevor M.)
