The employment missionaries also visit Church congregations to offer resources available through ERS. One visit attracted Vivian, a Chinese Church member who attended employment workshop sessions, including classes to provide confidence in speaking English. Because Vivian had dog-grooming experience, Sister Hancock found a grooming job where Vivian applied. She was interviewed and received employment.
“A job becomes much of your self-image, of who you are. As employers send job opportunities to us, they provide an opportunity for people to have placement and self-worth,” Sister Windley explains. “We emphasize that the Lord loves His people and provides resources for them to be successful. ERS centers are just one of His tools.”
