Go Fish Ministries Domestic Violence Victims Camp Fundraiser


Go Fish Ministries Domestic Violence Victims Camp

Organizer : Kimberly Hartfield

This Fundraiser ends on : 10/31/2012

Beneficiary : Go Fish Ministries, Inc.

My dream is to someday create and run a Christian Camp for victims of sexual and domestic violence, using Adventure Based Counseling and other Counseling techniques to bring about change in their hearts and lives.

My dream is to someday create and run a Christian Camp for victims of sexual and domestic violence, using Adventure Based Counseling and other Counseling techniques to bring about change in their hearts and lives. I also want to include gardening, and pet therapy as part of the process as well. I want the camp to be as self-sufficient as possible with a full scale garden and farm animals to support it. People heal when they get back to nature, and find God in earth He has created for them. Well, maybe this is all just a dream, but it’s a big dream and I have a big God, who can make it happen, if I only have the faith! If everyone who cares about victims of sexual and domestic violence would just donate $1 toward the ministry, I could soon have enough money to buy about 10 acres or so of land somewhere and get it started. Well my goals have been stated, now it’s up to God to make it happen or not. I keep on praying the Prayer of Jabez, Lord, bless me indeed and enlarge my territory, keep Your hand on me and keep me from evil that I might not cause pain. I never thought God would enlarge my territory as much as He has already, but a few thousand views to my website at http://gofishministries.wordpress.com is nothing compared to what my God can do. I trust that He didn’t give me this dream for nothing!

About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderful children and three grandkids, who I am very proud of. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. My ministry is geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community, and that I have been called to the homeland mission field of North America. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
