Have you heard about this little ministry called “Random Acts of Hope”?
I say “little” ministry – but it’s not so little anymore. What started out as taking a love of flowers and giving them away, has turned into a crazy, hope-filled journey of God using simple second-hand flowers and garage sale vases to bring hope into some of the most unexpected situations.
Buy some flowers, arrange them, pray, give them away.
In the beginning, I bought the flowers myself at a local grocery store. I arranged the flowers in the tiny kitchen at my apartment. And I mostly gave the flowers away to people I knew at church.
Today, Random Acts of Hope is given two large storage totes of flowers each week to use for the arrangements and works out of a space in a friend’s ministry building with room enough to store vases and supplies and create arrangements. A gorgeous ministry logo was designed by a friend, professional photos have been taken of some of the arrangements, and flowers have been given to complete strangers including one very surprised and overwhelmed manager at a Planned Parenthood clinic.
I have watched God use these flowers to bring hope into some of the most amazing, ‘only God could do that’ situations.
And it’s only the beginning.
I don’t know what God has next for Random Acts of Hope. But I do know whatever it is, He already has every detail covered. The world needs hope more now than ever before – and if Random Acts of Hope can be a part of bringing that hope to this part of the world, then the answer is “Yes, God!” to whatever He has next.
That being said, if you would like to keep in touch with the ministry and receive updates as to what’s next, please send an email to email@example.com or send a message via the facebook page at facebook.com/RandomActsofHope
