Debby was a tremendous help to me over the two years she served as my assistant. She always had good advice and input when I was trying to figure out the details of this ministry and she was always there to do the little tasks that were stressful for me or that I did not have time for. Not only that, but she became a great friend during the time we worked together. God has now called her to other things. One of those things is spending time on her true passion: quilting! Debby is truly an artist and her quilts are not only beautiful, but also God glorifying. She continues to bless this ministry by donating some of the proceeds from the sales of her quilts to the food program at the school in Carrefour Poy. Check out some of her work at her etsy shop or her quilting blog. ~Wendy
Here is Debby’s story of how she came to be involved in The Bridge Sponsorship Program:
January 2012- After retiring from my career as a neonatal intensive care nurse. I was frequently asked, “What are you going to do?” My answer was always the same. “I don’t know, but I am trying to be open and listen for God’s leading.”
I have sponsored a young girl through Compassion for a few years, and it has been a very good experience. So when Compassion asked for people to have a “Compassion Sunday” at their church, I thought, I could do that. I sent for the materials and shared it with Pastor Dale. When I asked him a few weeks later what he thought about it, he said, “I have something to share with you.” And then, in our book group (reading Radical Together by David Platt,) he had Wendy share about her vision for a child sponsorship program for the children of Carrefour Poy, Haiti. Of course I told her I wanted to help her with that!
Isn’t it amazing how God works things out?
