Gina Hoffman joined the Many Faces of Love Board of Directors in December 2017, shortly after an experience at a Walk to Emmaus retreat. During that retreat, she received a word, “Preparation”. She received the word with the understanding that her gifts of mercy, compassion, and listening had been used to prepare her for the position on the Board. These gifts are also in use as a volunteer at The Day Center for the Homeless and Iron Gate; as well, as a Stephen Minister within the community and in her job with Edward Jones. All of that, along with her involvement with Many Faces of Love, prepared her to accept what God had allowed; the diagnosis of breast cancer in 2018, with patient endurance and perseverance. And all during her cancer journey she proclaimed the promise of Gen 50:20 and that there is “Glory at Stake Here”. That Glory journey lead her to join the leadership team of Project31, an OK based Breast Cancer Support Group. Her desire to walk alongside other women who are in need and offer compassion and a listening ear – to be their stretcher bearer, continues to overflow her heart. In 2013, Gina and her husband Jerry united their families and together they have 2 sons and daughters in love, 1 daughter and son in love, 1 son in the Navy, 2 lively grandsons and 1 spunky granddaughter. They are both active within their church home, Evergreen Baptist Church and refer to their home in the country as “Restoration Acres”. One of God’s promises she has seen fulfilled and clings to still, “I will restore to you the years of the swarming locusts” Joel 2:25.
