2022 Impact Report
2022 for PS I Love You Ministries was a year for structure and expansion. As I reflect on the year, I am once again humbled by the outpouring of love and support from our donors and community to provide for foster children. Thank you!
In January, our small staff had a planning day for the year. This is where the “structure” began to take place. We strategically looked at our strengths, weaknesses, areas of opportunity, and areas for growth. Using the gifts and talents God gave each of us, we made a plan, prioritized the tasks, implemented new ideas and He produced results! Yay God!
I knew to resolve our weaknesses, expand our services and reach more foster families, God was calling us to expand our territory. I will be honest, expanding and growing and changing are all exciting, but, also a bit frightening…. As a director of a small non-profit, my heart's desire and passion is to serve foster children and provide clothing, shoes, car seats, etc. for kids in foster care that can’t help themselves. But to do that to its fullest, I knew we needed more space.
Hebrews 11:1 “Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.” This verse reminded me to trust God for what I cannot see and have faith that He
will provide. He opened up the opportunity for us to expand by
purchasing our new building so now we have double the
space for growth!
