Lisa Heth will be the speaker at a Pierre Aglow meeting on Saturday evening, 6:30 pm at 1105 E. Sioux Avenue (River Center Church).
Ms. Heth is the Executive Director at Wiconi Wawokiya, Inc (Helping Families) in Ft. Thompson, SD (http://wiconiwawokiya.org/AboutUs.html). She will speak about her work with women and children in crisis, providing a safe haven for them to heal and grow – and how God has provided as she lives His purpose.
Lisa Heth was awarded the national Crime Victim Service Award from the Department of Justice in 2015, and Lisa gives glory to God for illuminating His purposes in her life. “We’ve gone through some tough times over the years, so I wouldn’t feel right not to give glory and honor to our Creator for his guidance and his ability to show me the way and provide me with the strength to sustain and keep going.”
Wiconi Wawokaya is also dedicated to ending Human Trafficking and will be opening Pathfinder Center, which will provide housing, counseling, healing, and respect to women seeking help.
Pierre Aglow Prison Ministry – Annual Report 2015
Pierre Aglow Prison Ministry partners with local supporters to show God’s love to prison inmates. We are so blessed to be able to carry out the words of Matthew 25:36 (“I was in prison and you visited me“). A very special thank all who have supported us, for your ministry, encouragement, prayers, and financial blessing. Thank you and God bless you.
Pierre Aglow Prison Ministry brings a speaker and worship team to two prison units during the 4th weekend of each month. Prayer partners outside the prison carry the inmates’ written prayer requests before the Father. We distribute a monthly newsletter, ‘Burning,’ to Aglow attendees, and send birthday cards to attendees. Opportunities for ministry abound inside and outside the SDWP - please contact us if you have a passion for prison ministry. For more information, please check our Facebook page and our blog at http://www.pierreaglow.blogspot.com/.
Our speakers at the prison during 2015 have been Sarah McKinley (Pierre, SD), Carla Noe (Sioux Falls, SD), Karen Nelson (Elkton, SD), Pastor Jeff Mann - Purity and Restoration Seminar (Huron, SD), Pastor Dan Hammer by video, Denette Eisnach Becker (Pierre, SD), Pastor Joe Henson (Pierre, SD), Patricia Harrington (San Marcos, TX), Patricia Messer and Lisa Bollock (Rapid City, SD), Kathryn Murray (Sioux Falls, SD), Teresa Bray (Pierre, SD), Myrna Buckles and Anita Brehe (PIerre, SD), Betsy Moeller (Rosholt, SD), and Sande Lofberg (Rapid City, SD). We have had awesome worship with Sarah McKinley and members of the Blood Washed Band.
