Meet Jean Wigington. We were so blessed to have her join our staff in May of 2015. Here she shares her story of how JSFM has impacted her life.
"I was so tired and weary when Joseph’s Storehouse came into my life. See, I had been working outside my home for 39 years, along with nursing my sick mother for the last 7 years of her life. Things in this life are not always physically a blessing, but as God’s daughter, I held on to His Word in Proverbs 3:5-6: 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.' In March of 2015, my mother’s home became heaven, and I found myself unemployed and my day with no demands. For the first time in my adult life I could chose to spend my day doing whatever I wanted. So I chose to come and be a part of learning more about the Holy Bible and what God’s plan for my tomorrow might be. The refreshing, uplifting Overcomers Bible Study class with Brother Leonard Diebold and friends (held on Tuesday mornings at 9 AM here at JSFM) allowed me to see the families with needs in our community. The Joseph’s Storehouse Food Ministry staff and volunteers are putting into action God’s commandment to 'love one another.'
"This opened the door for me to become a part of the daily operations at Joseph’s Storehouse Food Ministry using my giftings and talents for our Lord. My tired and weary days are now encouraged and uplifted being a part of helping others who need HOPE. We all have something to give. Please ask your heart, 'what am I to give?' Together with the Lord we can all make a difference."
