Love INC Impact Stories

Another Chance at Life

Posted by Erin Tink on

Crystal came home to Waterloo to die. A Greyhound brought her here with the clothes on her back and a terminal medical diagnosis.
She didn’t pack hope, but God had other plans.

Upon arriving, Crystal called Love INC for some kitchen essentials, which she picked up from a local church (our Gap Ministry partner). Through that first contact, she began attending and experiencing love for her church family, for God and finally... for herself. She received the best gift of all – the love of Christ in human form.

Through Love INC’s Begin Now ‘Faith and Finances’ class, she has learned how to break free of her reliance on others to meet her needs. She used to receive her check on the 1st of the month and it was gone by the 10th. After learning how to manage her expenses, she now has funds at the end of the month, and is able to help others!

It turns out God brought Crystal to Waterloo, not to die, but to get another chance at life.
