Wow! God is Good…all the time! Even amidst Covid and the ever-changing times, people came out and showed their support for Chaplain Judy and Captive Hearts. What a pleasant surprise it was to have such an amazing turnout at Judy’s Retirement Celebration & Fundraiser the day before Mother’s Day. Over one hundred people came out to honor and celebrate Chaplain Judy and her time with the Central Coast Captive Hearts. There was absolutely no doubt how loved Judy is and how incredibly she will be missed here on the Central Coast. Judy’s light, passion and love for hurting humanity was evident in the words that were spoken to and about her through the guest speakers. Her faith, love of Jesus and ministry has impacted not only hundreds of women and several churches, but also professionals in the jails and courthouse as well. It was inspiring to hear the stories and the changed lives that have come about because of the ministry that Judy started 21 years ago.
We are truly humbled by the generosity of our supporters and are so grateful to everyone that is partnering with us to “Bringing Healing to Hurting Humanity.” We had almost 60 donated items in our silent auction which included cakes, desserts, floral centerpieces & bouquets and other items which included handmade planters and luxury pillows. Thank you to everyone that donated through the silent auction and in the live donations at the end. Several people committed to help the women in our ministry on a monthly basis as well. And then we were even humbled more by the generous donation by Steve Sproger. The helping of hurting humanity will only expand and grow more because of his generous donation. He shocked everyone in attendance with his donation of $500,000 to start the building and expansion of Captive Hearts on the Central Coast and to continue his legacy of the Sproger House. Again I say, “God is Good! All the time!”
