Hope Chicago celebrated Mother’s Day by honoring the Lord and the Mother’s Love. The only word to describe Mom was Wow! (as the decorations demonstrated) The day started off with a spirit-filled worship session led by our extremely talented Moody Bible students. As an added bonus, a special Thai song was performed by Rose and her Mother, whom recently arrived here for the first time from Thailand.
We had several Mothers in attendance, some that have been with us for a while and some visiting for the first time. Our Mothers (and one Mother-to-be) were presented with loving gifts and special prayers were bestowed on each one of them. It was a very special day as J. Garcia presented the message before he went on a mission trip to Thailand. It had been a while since J. last visited us and we have been blessed by his presence ever since. His influence can still be felt through the Moody Bible students today.
He even gave a heroic and stirring testimony he encountered about pulling a mother and son from a car wreck on his way to Chicago that day. Service was followed by a delicious lunch with our Mothers being the guests of honor and getting served first. Overall, it was a beautiful day and a great way to celebrate the ones who nurtured us on earth and being blessed by the love of the Lord eternally.
