From Homeless and Hungry to Wholeness and Helping

  • By Yvette Carter, Jeannette (Wayman) Meitz
$15.49
Product Description
Domestic violence, rape, prison, homelessness, food insecurity, and cancer have given Yvette Carter the compassion and ability to minister to others. Read her heart-rending story of living in the streets, dealing drugs, and leaving her two young children with her mother when she was sent to prison for six years, followed by losing everything, being homeless, hungry and without hope. That despair drove her to beg for food at St. Paul, where she found God's redeeming grace. Then God began to unravel her crazy life and give her the marriage and ministry He uniquely created her for. Having walked in those same footsteps, her story will encourage those who are homeless and hungry and without hope to cry out to God who is the solution to your brokenness. There is hope for you God sees your tears and pain and wants to heal you, just as He mended her. If you believe there is no hope for "outcasts" to change, we pray you will be impacted by Yvette's living example of how God changes people and their circumstances. Will you invest in the lives of others, giving words of encouragement and hope, instead of judgment and condemnation, showing Jesus to all who need Him? Yvette Carter is Director of Open Arms Ministry, an outreach of St. Paul United Methodist Church in Largo, Florida, where she initially came seeking food for her family. She is also President and CEO of Victor Newman Ministries, serving alongside her husband, Michael, an ordained Free Methodist Minister. Jeannette (Wayman) Meitz, a spiritual mentor, finds joy in guiding women to trust God and depend on the Holy Spirit daily. With her husband, Frank, she is active in the Discipler Training International ministry, and is on the Board of Victor Newman Ministries, and learning from Yvette how to be the "hands and feet of Jesus."
