Call her blessed...

Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her.
Proverbs 31:28
In honor of Mother’s Day yesterday, we wanted to share some photos of the wonderful, hard-working and inspiring moms we’ve met at Victory.
One of the best parts of our job is getting to meet people that we’re helping. We get to see and experience the difference that compassionate healthcare makes in their lives, and nothing beats that. 
For mothers, in particular.

These are women who will choose to buy school supplies for their children and pass on their need prescription medications for the month. Logging long hours at work and at home to provide for their children and family. Putting themselves last. And working really, really hard.

Being able to provide a full spectrum of healthcare for these mothers is special. We see a lot of very happy moms.

 Which is exactly what wanted to share with you.
Here are some of the mothers your donations have helped in our community.

A God of Abundance

My God, your God is a God of abundant blessings. He is faithful to His children and His blessings are always so much bigger than our feeble minds can imagine. Victory is counting its blessings after Hope for  Healing, our third annual Celebration Dinner held on April 30th at the Mobile Marriott. It was truly a night of great celebration and remembrance for the many ways that God has been so faithful over the last decade of service. The room was adorned with the 'people of Victory' a beautiful collage that Ron Barrett masterfully displayed and stunning arrangements from Elizabeth's Garden. 

The beautiful music provided by Ginger and Mahlon McCracken and the Voices from the University of Mobile touched the hearts of our guests and was a testament to our God's glory. Dr. Scott Morris gave a spectacular keynote address which was an inspiring challenge to all the Church to reclaim our central role in the health and well-being of God's people. There were testimonies from patients, doctors, pastors and supporters on their calling to serve through Victory. Because of the generosity of our sponsors, in-kind donors and supporters; over $100,000 was raised to directly support the ministry of Victory Health Partners. Because of you, our patients will not only receive quality health care but they will be shown the healing love of our Jesus Christ. We give all honor and glory to God for His abundant blessings!

Dean's Story

My eyesight had gotten much worse since my last prescription about three years ago. Because of other financial pressures, I had not been able to get new glasses even though I was now having a lot of trouble seeing through my present glasses. I was amazed at what happened through this program and the voucher i received. I was told that I will receive a voucher and to be honest, I did not know what to expect. You can imagine my surprise and pleasure when I went to LensCrafters and presented my voucher. They treated me with the utmost respect and seemed so pleased just to be able to help me. They allowed me to choose from a very good selection of frames and had the glasses ready to pick up the same day. And, to my shock, I walked out with excellent glasses - and absolutely no cost! Thank you so much to all those who made this possible. You are a blessing to me daily.

It is because of the many partnerships and volunteers that make these stories a reality. There are hundreds of stories just like Dean's that have occurred because of the generosity of our supporters and volunteers. That is what Victory is all about, individual lives being touched by the love of Christ which is shown through our partners. From all of us at Victory, thank you to all of our partners that provide compassionate and comprehensive care to the patients we are privileged to serve.
