It’s December, which means we’re bringing another fantastic year of ministry to a close! With these past twelve months came tons of amazing milestones. And some of our favorite ones are listed below!
IJM’s Liberate Prayer Gathering
When International Justice Mission (IJM) flew in its employees from all over the world to Dallas for their annual prayer gathering, Liberate, Reclaimed and Watermark (in addition to other churches and ministries) stepped up by sending volunteers to love and serve IJM’s faithful employees.
Sermons at Watermark
While he was in town for Liberate, IJM’s founder Gary Haugen spoke at Watermark’s Sunday services and The Porch! Click the links below to watch both sermons and be encouraged by the truth he shared.
New Roots Study Books AND One-Day Study
This year, we updated our curriculum with a new design and revised content. The new book debuted shortly before we held our first one-day study, which featured two panels, a prayer tour, and more! Our next one-day study is on Jan. 26, 2019, so register now if you haven't gone through the Roots study yet!
Watermark Apartment at Restored Hope Ministries
One of the ministries we partner with purchased an apartment complex where women with children could live while participating in their recovery program, and graduates of the safe house also can live there. Watermark specifically sponsored one of the apartments, and a Restored Hope graduate is currently living there! We also did another work day at the apartments—painting, planting, and cleaning to serve the current and future residents!
Motel Outreach Successes and Expansions
This year, hotel/motel outreach volunteers received tips about several missing girls. They also expanded their routes to include other places where missing and prostituted women might be found such as bus stops.
At long last, our volunteers have official Reclaimed shirts! If you’re a volunteer and missed the chance to pick your shirt up at our December volunteer meeting, email us at Reclaimed@watermark.org to get yours.

Reclaimed exists to empower and mobilize God’s Church to REDEFINE a hyper-sexualized culture, RESTORE men and women victimized by the sex industry, and to REACH a world hurt by the abuse of sex all through the power of Jesus Christ.
