The Purpose of the BBHH Women's Council                             

The purpose of the Women’s Council is to be a support organization for all Brother Bill's Helping Hand (BBHH) does in the community of West Dallas.  The goal is to not only provide a broader base of volunteers and donors for this ministry, but also to cover the ministry in prayer.

Each Fall the Women’s Council hosts a luncheon to introduce the organization to men and women from all across Dallas. Inspired by guest speakers, those attending learn about opportunities for service available throughout the year at Brother Bill's Helping Hand.

Through newsletters the Women’s Council membership is reminded of special events sponsored by the Council, such as Birthday Party in a Bag, Kids’ Craft Time, and the annual Children’s Christmas Celebration. Twice a year the Executive Board hosts a Coffee for the membership and their guests. This is a time for members to get to know each other and to learn more about the work BBHH does in West Dallas. 

Membership dues for the year are $40 and can be mailed to:

2013 Touch a Life...Tend a Soul Fall Luncheon

An amazing morning as friends of BBHH, both old and new, filled the Great Hall at Park Cities Baptist Church. After an opening prayer by Dr. Jeff Warren and a delicious meal, we were blessed by the words of Craig Schenkel.  He spoke of the 10-year experience he and his wife, Kendall, have had as weekly volunteers at BBHH.  Everyone attending felt their love for the neighbors we serve, and their commitment to this ministry.

 

Ruth Altshuler, a woman full of dignity and grace, and respected by all who know her, spoke after Craig.  She has changed thousands upon thousands of lives through her generosity and by encouraging others to do the same. Ruth's introduction of our keynote speaker, Trevor Rees-Jones, was personal, full of joy and laughter. She ended her introduction by reading two very special emails, each expressing appreciation to Jan and Trevor Rees-Jones for all they have done for those in need.  The first email was from Laura Bush, the second from President George Bush. 

 

Trevor Rees-Jones' conversation with the close to 500 people in attendance was a personal reflection of the path he and his wife, Jan, walked as they were acquiring the means to help those in need. His stories of childhood "business attempts" filled the room with laughter as he talked about how their personal interests directs their foundation's focus. Their mission is simple, use the gifts God has given them to share Christ's love while meeting needs.

 

Annie Mayberry, a faithful volunteer and West Dallas neighbor, ended the morning with a word of thanks to BBHH and to those who make this ministry possible.  She eloquently expressed her appreciation for all BBHH has done for her family and for so many others in West Dallas. Her closing prayer was one of praise and adoration to God for the provisions He continues to supply.

 

BBHH praises God for each one of these individuals, for the Women's Council Executive Board, and for all who attended and supported this special event.  It truly was an amazing morning.

2nd Saturday at BBHH...

This morning 61 families came for groceries. Another 27 neighbors came for a Healthy Living class on accessing quality health care information on the internet. Sixteen elementary school children participated in a fun morning camp led by a group of Girl Scouts.

This afternoon 65 people were present for the PathWays graduation ceremony. Six ladies, having completed 90 hours of job training over a six-week period, are now better qualified to begin their search for a job that fits their skills and gifts.

To top off an already amazing day, following the PathWays graduation the Sunshine Masonic Lodge in Oak Cliff presented a $1000 check to BBHH and honored our Executive Director with the Texas Masonic Lodge Community Builder award. We praise God for all the volunteers and BBHH staff who made today possible - a day of service and celebration enjoyed by all.
