Dear Carry Cross,
I am a single mother of two who went through the unthinkable. I endured years of abuse that eventually turned to my two girls. I was devastated and I felt that God had let me down. Last year, a friend sent me a Carry Cross and I was so moved that I got one for each of my daughters. Soon after, my daughters and I were invited by a youth pastor to attend a local church.
After several weeks of attendance, we decided to send him a Carry Cross. When I told you my story and about this young pastor, you suggested that we both pray about a verse and we would speak in a couple of days. We talked a few days later and I told you the verse I had chosen. I left the ‘word of encouragement’ on the front up to you.
Upon receipt of pastor’s Carry Cross, I called you about the word on the front of the cross. When you explained that Tetelesti was a Greek word for ‘the debt is paid’ and ‘it is finished’ I started to cry. The young pastor that I was giving the Carry Cross to was Greek. And, he had recently returned from a mission trip to Greece. I was delighted and felt very blessed that I witnessed such an event.
