The front page of the Columbus Dispatch today has an amazing, amazing article about the women that doma serves here in Columbus… women who have been caught up in Human Trafficking and the Sex Trade. Women who are bold, courageous, and standing together for lasting change.
TODAY Doma opens up the CATCH house for them! A 5 bedroom, beautiful old retreat home- fully furnished and completely restful. For now, the home will be used for gatherings outside of the courthouse- and for special events, retreats, life skills classes, and spiritual mentorship.
TOMORROW we stock it with food from a generous donation of a restaurant in Hilliard that is closing down.
NEXT WEEK we plant a garden together and begin gathering.
CAN YOU imagine the JOY I am feeling today knowing that you have all made it possible for doma to open this house for them!? I will update you this week with more news as we begin meeting in the house. Believe me when I say that these women are truly amazing! The Judge’s compassion is all Christ motivated– and WOW, is that courtroom full of the presence of God like I’ve never felt before.
