The Miracle of Grace Ministry 
In this newsletter, we are inspired to share the heart of Grace Ministry of Helping Hands, Jan Miller, who is now at home with the Father. We appreciate all of you who came to her celebration of life. We are tremendously thankful for the outpouring of support. We know Jan is loved so much.

Jan and Kathleen met at Southside Baptist Church back in 2007 at a class that Jan was teaching named the GROW. It was Kathleen's first visit to SSBC that fateful Sunday. Jan was standing on the stage introducing the GROW class and after class, Kathleen immediately went up to her, introduced herself and that was the day their journey started! Glory be to God that same year the Lord called Jan and Kathleen to be His hands, feet, and voice to begin carrying the message of hope to the women on Phillips Highway.  It has been an amazing call on both of their lives as co-founders of Grace Ministry for the past 12 years.

As Roy Miller, her loving husband says, God divinely connected two women with complete different backgrounds and personalities to do His work.

"I have learned so much from Jan.  She has taught me a lot about reflecting the love of Christ and about being patient and tolerant. She has taught me a lot about slowing down and embracing life. I was the one going 100 miles per hour at all times and Jan was always easy going. Even though we would get frustrated at times with each other with our different personalities, throughout the years God taught us by His Amazing Grace how to grow and work together." ~ Kathleen Jackson

Jan's "go to" scripture was Isaiah 41:10-13. She always gained her strength through this scripture and she taught it to our Grace Ministry ladies. One day as Kathleen was praying for Jan's healing and reading this scripture, she read a little further down and noticed Verse 41:20 which says, "I am doing this so all who see this miracle will understand what it means - that it is the Lord who has done this, the Holy One of Israel who created it." Kathleen shared that she thought that meant Jan was going to be healed here on Earth. 

"However, a wise servant of the Lord told me that Jan's healing was waiting for her in Heaven. I did not want to believe that. Of course, I wanted to believe she was going to be healed here on Earth.  Now I understand that was not true, but the Kingdom Imprint she has left behind is the miracle that we all get to see!" ~ Kathleen
 
Some of the work that He has instructed them to do include:
*Street Ministry
*Letter writing to women in jails and prisons throughout Florida
*Jail and rehabilitation visitation
*Safe sober living housing
*Christian mentoring 

Jan's passion, impact on the community, and all the lives she has touched will live on forever.
