Every month we feature an After the Boxes are Unpacked study group. These groups are offering friendship, connection, and the path to emotional well-being and spiritual growth for women who have been uprooted by a move.
St. Matthew Catholic Church
Group Leaders: Becky Malinowski and Valerie Menzel
Hazel had moved from India to Charlotte, North Carolina.
Every move has its challenges, but an international move to a different culture and language adds much more to adjust to. Hazel joined the After the Boxes Are Unpacked study group at St. Matthew Catholic Church in Charlotte and was loved and cared for by leaders Becky and Valerie and the other women of the group.
Hazel was uprooted again and transplanted to the Phoenix metropolitan area! She recently stopped by the Just Moved Ministry office in Scottsdale to meet Susan Miller and to express her gratitude for the book, the study, and the support she experienced at St. Matthew.
Thank you, Becky and Valerie, for reaching out to Hazel and to others newcomers to Charlotte! You have a vital ministry that exemplifies Christ’s love!
Becky writes, “Valerie and I both feel very strongly about the immense impact this program had on our lives and personal moving stories and we feel honored to have the opportunity to help other women through their moving struggles. We appreciate all of your support. It makes me so happy to know that Hazel has the support of this wonderful ministry right in her brand new Arizona backyard (even though we miss her so much here in Charlotte)!”
