Barbara Alderfer: What CRHP means to me
The weekend was life changing for me. I made life-long friends. I was blessed to become the Godmother to one of those precious women, as she entered the church! I gained a boldness to serve God.
Since the weekend, I have looked for ways to serve Jesus.
I do alterations in my home, so I assume that anyone who comes to see me is sent by God and I minister to them and offer to pray with them and for them.
I cared for a precious little baby for eight months … something I thought I would NEVER do! I found that the “yes” that I said to Jesus on my weekend has opened me up to opportunities to love and serve and has brought me more joy than I could imagine.
Before CRHP I had a strong prayer life, but since my weekend, I have put my prayer life into action. I’m glad my 93-year-old mother (who made her weekend when she was only 83) encouraged me to go. She was right.
