This is Heidi, moderator of this page:
The day that the Business Boutique opened, I met Apostle Iva at the front of Goodwill. I had just quit smoking and was doing just fine, just quietly waiting for her to arrive. I had butterflies in my stomach but that was nervous excitement (Seriously, not kidding- I’ve literally NO cravings for cigarettes, thank you LORD!) Anyway, she pulled up in front and got out of the car. I helped her carry stuff in and she said, “Wait till you see it!”. I walked into the room and my jaw hit the ground, ya’ll. If you look at the before and after pictures, it’s not hard to figure out why!
And these are the pictures of what the Boutique looked like BEFORE it’s reinvention!!

I’ve been working at for almost 8 months now and I love it more now than the day I slipped my way in to interview with Apostle Iva Bowers for the position. Now, it’s 8 months later and I have so much more knowledge of the organization than I did all these months ago. I also have less time! The more I do, the more there IS to do…bet that sounds familiar, doesn’t it??! I live in my own little world, sometimes. It’s hard being me, and no one could do it better than I. Sounds weird, right? You’d be amazed at how much introspection goes on within me. See, the Bible talks about God knowing all about us…knowing our rising and our sitting; our getting up and our laying down. As much as possible, given the fact that I will have to stand before Him one day and wanting to be ready, I spend a lot of time maintaining my life. I don’t do everything right and even do a lot wrong but I’m here 100% for Overcomers International Ministry and I am blessed beyond belief to have been given the opportunity to serve my community – and my God – in this small way. In my mind, the only thing that could POSSIBLY make my life any better is a paycheck of SOME size…then I could “volunteer” to my heart’s content. I LOVE nonprofit organizations! I’ve been around them for decades and human interest is definitely closest to my heart. The homeless, the sick and disadvantaged – these are the people who rip my heart out…and make it beat. God knows the integrity of my spirit. He knows that, while I fall all the time, and have trouble saying “no” to anyone, that there’s NOTHING I won’t do to please my Daddy.
So, who am I? I’ve been managing this page for months and though activity has increased a bit in recent weeks (I’ve been praying for success in my social media pursuits), I don’t think I’ve ever covered who I am. My name is Heidi Joy Hameed. I am almost 41 years old. I have lived in 6 states, so many towns/cities it’s not even funny. I have been through foster care, adopted (not particularly happily but at least I was reared in the knowledge of Scripture and the Heidelberg Catechism I’m not writing the things I am as a sympathy ploy – at almost 41 years old, it’s way too late to spend time thinking my past with the view of feeling sorry for myself. Too many blessings are in my life, too little time remains between now and when the next customer comes through the door seeking help to survive in this wretched life, so often living with the feeling of abandonment. It’s hard to be homeless; it’s hard to be poor. These days, it seems to be the norm for people to kind of smooth life issues over in an attempt (recognized or not) to not have to deal with issues in society; issues in our own personal lives. Too little time remains till Yeshua comes to take <part of> the flock home.
Overcomers International Ministry is my home-away-from-home. I spend most of my time here. When I’m not here, I’m thinking about it. I want to be effective here; efficient with my time, successful with my attempts to get funds coming in to this nonprofit, whose sole goal is to help as many in the community as possible; to further the gospel. We walk by faith; we’re faithful with the least. It’s taken me all morning to write this particular blog because I’ve been talking to people, helping bring food into the building to be inventoried and sent out to other places, to partners we’ve created alliances with. I’ve asked God – my Father- to guide and direct my path. As always, we are accepting donations. To donate by Pay Pal or by CC, go to http://www.oimco.org and do so. If you wish to mail a check, make it payable to Overcomers International Ministry. May God bless you each and every day. We covet your prayers…as James says, “The strong, effectual prayer of the righteous man avails much”.
We are so thankful to God for partners. We thank him for Women’s Resource Center for donating the clothes that we’ve been able to bless people with! Without them, we would not be able to help as many as we want to!
Good morning, I hope you are all well!!
