Good Evening House of Pearls Supporters

 

The last few weeks have been very productive for the House of Pearls. We held our HUGE Yard Sale on Saturday, August 29, which was very successful. Thank you to all of those who came out and helped us with this endeavor.

This past Tuesday afternoon the ladies were blessed with the opportunity to see the movie War Room. Our volunteers from Moms in Prayer, Mary Helen Holloway and Cheryl Billinger hosted this event for us, of which we are immensely grateful! Thank you Mary Helen and Cheryl! What a powerful movie!

PLEASE continue to PRAY for the house, pray for the Pearls who are here now, for those who have been here, and for all who are yet to come. Also, for the staff, volunteers, and supporters.

Philippians 4:19 “And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

We continue to have needs, although our needs list continues to change, as we are blessed with donations on a daily basis. As always, we continue to need volunteers.

Our current needs list is:

  • Toilet paper
  • House cleaning supplies
  • Dorm size refrigerator
  • Dehumidifier
  • RIDX
  • B12
  • Aleve/Naproxen
  • Trash bags (kitchen & large)

  • Laundry detergent
  • Fresh, canned or frozen vegetables
  • Printer ink for Office Jet Pro 8600 HP 950XL

We also have a dire need for a vehicle for the ministry, preferably a 7- 10 passenger vehicle, but any vehicle is greatly appreciated. If you have a vehicle, know someone who does, or would like to make a donation toward the purchase of another one for the ministry, please let us know. We know that God has the perfect vehicle out there for us, and we pray he moves on the hearts of people to help with this need.

PLEASE READ:
We also have a great need here at the house. We need to find a Godly woman of Godly character who may need a place to live and is willing to serve as a House Mother or Night Manager. This would require her to stay the nights and weekends here at the house with the girls and make sure rules are being followed. During the weekdays she would be free to go to work or wherever she may need to go. She will be provided a free room of her own and bathroom and board here at the house in exchange for serving in this position. This is not a demanding position and only requires her presence at night and weekends and willingness to serve as the House Mother or Night Manager. If you know someone or are able to do that yourself, please contact the house 704.324.4303.

We are exceedingly grateful for the continuous outpouring and blessings from our community. We give great thanks to all of our volunteers, donors and supporters!

If you are interested in volunteering or donating, please contact us at 704-324-4303 or email jonijones@houseofpearls.org.

Please pray and obey what the Lord is saying to you about helping House of Pearls.

Pearls Go All Out for a Yard Sale

Saturday was a beautiful day for a yard sale. Almost everything you could imagine was for sale — clothes, books, shoes, printers, glassware, housewares, office chairs, computers, fabric remnants, ribbon, crafting items, scarves, just to name a few.

The Pearls worked extremely hard to categorize all the clothing donations to make it easy work for shoppers to find a treasure. Many items were marked with prices and displayed in the side yard of the house. They also provided a lunch of grilled hot dogs, drinks and chips. The Pearls were blessed with a number of volunteers from Lee Park Baptist Church. A big thank you to the volunteers for taking off their Saturday morning to help.

There is talk of another yard sale taking place soon. Come back often to check for announcements.

Visit us and Like us at www.facebook.com/pages/House-of-Pearls/116027301767340.

Thank you to all for all you do!

Pearls Create Cookies in a Jar

As part of their Great Week of Service, ladies from Weddington UMC spent a couple hours Monday evening creating Cookies in a Jar with the Pearls. All had a great time filling the jars with cookie ingredients and making creative tags with the recipe to attach to the jars. While the jars were being filled and decorated, cookies were baking in the oven. All in attendance got to sample the cookies during a time of fellowship led by Dorie Mayes. The Pearls will be able to sell the jars with their other crafts as a way to raise money for the house.

House of Pearls is Thriving!

"He has made everything beautiful in it's time."
Ecclesiastes 3:11

What a wonderful time of year with the change in seasons and thus the warmer weather, beautiful sunsets and longer days. Changes are also occurring at the House of Pearls...lots of change.

First of all, the Board of Directors is happy to announce we have hired Joni Jones as the new Director of Programs. Joni is a native of Union County with family roots in the Marshville area and is an active member of Lee Park Baptist Church. After working in the financial industry for many years and having struggles in her life, she realized something was missing and finally completely surrendered her life to The Lord. She felt a calling on her life to help those struggling to rebuild their lives after making bad decisions. She has been a volunteer at The House of Pearls off and on for the past year and knew God was stirring something special within her heart. In April, she decided to make more of a commitment to HOP by volunteering on a regular basis but that quickly turned into her being offered the Director of Programs position.

Joni has jumped in with both feet and although the transition has not been an easy one, she has the love of the Lord all over her. We, as the Board, are thrilled with her enthusiasm and passion. She has already found a permanent House Mother/Night Manager and she brings forth daily updates of how the Lord is moving in the house and within the ladies. Just this morning we learned that 2 of the ladies re-dedicating their lives to the Lord.

Please continue to pray for The House of Pearls; Joni & Cindy (the Night Manager), the ladies, the volunteers, the changes that are taking place. Without your love, support and prayers, we would not be able to continue this ministry.

Please consider getting involved.  As you can see there are wonderful things happening, but it still takes an army to raise up these ladies as the Lord would have us do.  

Thanks again for all of your love, prayers and support (both financially and with your time).

Board of Directors

Exciting things are happening at House of Pearls!

This week we welcomed 2 new ladies to the house, Elizabeth on Friday and Jackie on Saturday.

On Saturday we had Lee Park Men’s Ministry volunteer at the house to cut the weeds around the barn, trim the trees and altogether help to beautify the yard. They, along with a group from Charlotte Christian Singles helped to clean out and organize one of the barns. What a blessing all of these folks were in helping us to complete this work. There is still a lot of work to be done and we will continue to have projects and need volunteers throughout the summer.

We were also blessed this week with new volunteers to teach classes & help around the house. Thank you all for your servants’ hearts and your willingness to pour into the ladies here.

We certainly saw this scripture lived out this week; Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”

We continue to have needs, although our needs list continues to change, as we are blessed with donations on a daily basis.
Our current needs list is: dorm size refrigerator, mop, broom, laundry detergent, fresh, canned or frozen vegetables, storage boxes, storage bins, Tupperware or Rubbermaid kitchen storage, highlighters and index cards. All donations are accepted and greatly appreciated.

We are also in need of a vehicle for the ministry, preferably a 7- 10 passenger vehicle, but any vehicle is greatly appreciated. If you have a vehicle, know someone who does, or would like to make a donation toward the purchase of another one for the ministry, please let us know. We know that God has the perfect vehicle out there for us, and we pray he moves on the hearts of people to help with this need.

We are exceedingly grateful for the continuous outpouring and blessings from our community. We give great thanks to all of our volunteers, donors and supporters!
