How Bingo Changes Lives

People from God's Grace serve the world every month by hosting Bingo at The Gathering Place, a daytime shelter for poor and homeless women and children. You might wonder just exactly how Bingo serves the world. Here's a story that helps answer that question:

Until I started working at The Gathering Place, it never occurred to me that a woman's life could be so bleak that the simple pleasure of a bingo game would be enough to make her think about kicking a drug habit. But I saw it happen.

Rhonda knew the rules. We don't let people come in here when they're high. Still, somehow, she sneaked in one day when we were giving the women a special treat - a bingo game. Rhonda laughed freely for the first time in years.

In fact, she had so much fun that day, she found herself trying to stay clean so that she could come here regularly. Eventually, she did beat the drug habit....and homelessness, too.

Who knew a bingo game could be so powerful?
