Were you ever a cheerleader or did you know one?  I was a cheerleader all through high school.  We didn’t compete like squads do today; our job was to come along beside our sports teams and cheer them on to victory.  When things got tough for them or it looked like they were slipping behind, we would cheer hard and louder.  There were times we would to cheers about being the best or being victorious even when the score wasn’t reflecting it.  Those were meant to spur the teams on and cause them to dig in and fight harder when things got difficult.
Hebrews 10:24ays, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.”  We are to lift one another up in times of hardship, just as Aaron and Hur lifting Moses’ arms during a time of battle [Exodus 17:8-13].  The battle was long and hard and Moses grew weary from holding his arms up, so Aaron and Hur came to his aid.  They weren’t in the trenches with Joshua fighting the enemy face to face, but they were still doing battle, simply in a different way.  1 Thessalonians 5:11 says, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”  We’re called to be Aarons and Hurs for those in our life.  We’re called to be support for each other. 
Wellspring Living is a wonderful restoration center for girls who have been victimized in the human sex trafficking trade.  They take girls in and over the course of nine months to a year, offer the girls healing and restoration: mind, body, and spirit.  These girls have to go through facing their past to claim their future. It’s hard work for them and can get discouraging at times.  Wellspring recognizes the girls would benefit greatly from having Aarons and Hurs in their lives, coming beside them to support them in their battle for freedom.  Wellspring is looking for people to partner with them as cheerleaders for their girls by offering encouragement along the way through writing notes of encouragement. By writing a word of encouragement to a young lady, you can offer her hope and give her the strength to move forward in her fight for freedom.
