This letter was received from an amazing group of women who worship at the Women at the Well Congregation, located inside the Iowa Correctional Institute for Women. It is truly a “widow’s mite” story of giving and we are grateful for their generosity.
“To Whom It May Concern:
Enclosed please find a check for $107.12 that represents a month of offerings from the Women at the Well congregation. The women who attend this church are inmates at the Iowa Correctionl Institution for Women, in Mitchellville, Iowa. Each month our Church Council selects a charity to receive their offerings and to be held in prayer by the congregation. They enthusiastically chose your organization for their offerings during September 2013.” “While we wish the amount of our gift could be more, please know that most of our members earn between $0.22 and $0.45 per hour. It is with this meager wage that they are required to purchase all of their personal items, hygiene products and of course, make any donations to charity. Please know that every cent that they have chosen to give to you is truly a “widow’s mite”.
We pray that this gift may touch someone’s life with the love of God. ”
