Praise God:

Our new website has received some great feedback, and we are praying that our impact will be greater as more people will be attracted to join our mission.


The participants in our graduating class are wanting to form a small group at Hickory Valley Christian Church. What a great means to follow up!


Speaking of Hickory Valley we are so thankful that they basically adopted our ministry. Not only have they given us a home, classroom space, and needs provided, but have also involved their church members.


We are working together with a group of like-minded individuals representing different ministries that we have been involved with in the past, and want to join efforts to be more effective. The Lord is drawing us together, and we continue to meet to develop a better systemic platform for the many needs of our participants.
