Yesterday, I was at a coffee shop, The Neighborhood Brew, doing some blog work in between clients. I went to the restroom and found a little yellow painted rock smiling at me on one of the decorative shelves they had.
Could it be that I came across one of the painted rocks I had heard so much about in the recent past? I had heard of people finding painted rocks in places, and you can choose to keep them or hide them again for someone else.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will is-His good, pleasing and perfect will.”-Romans 12:2
I flipped it over and sure enough it was one of those rocks! I noticed it had told me to use the hashtag #the.WellHouse, and saw where they had a website. I had never heard of them before so I was curious to know more.
The Well House, located in Odenville, Alabama, provides a safe place to women, offering them a combination of spiritual, mental, emotional, and even physical support services. They welcome all the women/girls who have been sexually exploited through human trafficking.
I know human trafficking is one of those things going on all the time, and right under all our noses. It breaks my heart when I hear about girls who’ve been involved with this.
The Well House mission, taken directly from their website, is:
“We exist to honor God by rescuing and providing opportunities for restoration to female victims of human trafficking who have been sexually exploited.”
I think it’s great the people at The Well House take in these girls, providing a safe place and support in order to get them back out there in life.
If you want to visit their website to learn more, contact, or donate, click here.
I think I’ll hide this little gem again for the next person to find it.
