09 Dec Guts Girls Gives Back In A Big Way
Hundreds of girls gathered at Guts Church and headed out to Give Back to Tulsa and the surrounding areas. They brought Christmas to thousands at every fire and police station in Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Jenks, Bixby, Sand Springs, Skiatook and Glenpool. Ronald McDonald House, The Little Light House, The Tulsa Boys Home, Hope Pregnancy, Glory House, DVIS, Tulsa Juvenile Detention Center, homeless shelters and many other agencies were impacted by Guts Girls building gingerbread houses, throwing baby showers and having Christmas rap and dance contests with the kids. Everything the agencies had on their list was provided along with prayer and just FUN!
I believe that everyone needs a “benchmark experience” in their lives. It’s a moment that you know God ordained. I believe that everyone involved, whether they were receiving or giving, had that benchmark experience. That is so like God to make it life-changing for everyone involved. This was our third year to give back at Christmas. The giving doubled from last year. I have a feeling this won’t be just a Christmas event. This will be “Who We Are.”
James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. Isaiah 1:17 Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows. Thank you to everyone that gave of their time, talent, resources and themselves. You helped them in their fight.
Looking forward to more benchmark experiences,
