Steadfast House Veteran residents were blessed with an amazing gift this holiday season. Ladies from the Women’s Home and Overseas Missionary Society treated our Veterans to a night of laughter, entertainment, and a lot of Jesus at their Christmas Gala.
One church from this society, led by Carla Tyrance, brought evening gowns and shoes for our ladies to not only wear for the evening, but to keep. Carla and her team then treated all of our participating residents to glamor makeovers including hair and nails. Finally, Steadfast residents were escorted as honored guests to the Women’s Home and Overseas Missionary Society area wide Christmas Gala.
Our Veteran residents who attended the gala told Volunteer Coordinator, Heather Cerda, that they felt loved, accepted, and just part of the group. Every woman returned to Steadfast House with a big smile and a full heart.
Reverend Scott Rogers was also invited to attend the Gala, and had a great evening seeing Steadfast House residents interact with this loving group of women. It was a great evening all around!
An added bonus was that Ms. Carla introduced Mrs. Iris Battle, the Society’s Missionary Supervisor, to Steadfast House’s Angela Cantania, Program Director and Heather Cerda, Volunteer Coordinator. They were able to discuss future ways that the Women’s Home and Overseas Missionary Society can continue to support our efforts to support the ladies and good work of Steadfast House. All of our staff and residents are excited to be partnering with such a giving, loving group. We look forward to what God has in store for this new relationship.
