Turning trials into triumphs

On the blog this week, Emily – our Senior Administrator – reports back on her recent visit to FaithAction member, Pathway Project.

Meeting Kathy Coe was an incredible experience merely because she turned her troubles into a testimony.  It seems to me that God gave her the strength to endure through a difficult season, and now she is able to help others through her experience.  Primarily she has done this by setting up Pathway Project, which supports people who have experienced violence and abuse. Even over lunch as we spoke about general things,

What do you do when you are a vulnerable young lady with three children, living in constant fear?  In a small town where you are crying for help, but there is little or none available?  Envision that.

For the most part, Kathy has done this by setting up Pathway Project, which supports people who have experienced violence and abuse. Even over lunch as we spoke about general things, I could tell that she is a very vibrant soul who stays positive no matter what is thrown in her direction.

It was also great to take a tour of the Pathway Project building, and to meet other staff members that play a part in contributing to the success.  The staff members I met again were very genuine and also very friendly.

One thing that really stuck out to me throughout the trip was the fact that the organisation has started providing assistance to men who experience domestic violence.  It is not something that is often discussed in mainstream media, so it was nice to see that Kathy providing support to both female and males.
