I Timothy 1:12-16 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given the strength, that he considered us faithful, appointing us to His service. Even though we were once a blasphemer and a persecutor and violent, we were shown mercy because we acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on us abundantly,along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance in Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom we were the worst. But for that very reason we were shown mercy so that in us, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on Him and receive eternal life.
Randy and I both feel so blessed that God has given us this ministry and this plan in our lives. Ten years ago when we moved here to Virginia we had no idea what God had in His plans for us. I visited some friends in Beaufort not to long ago and the first thing said was "did you ever think you and Randy would be doing what you are right now for the Kingdom of God." I have to say, "no, but I guess God did."
God has given such a passion in both our hearts for those that are battling addiction and other life controlling struggles. Satan has tried his best to just taken over this area and the rest of the world with drugs and alcohol. He is destroying families and friends, he is on a mission to thrill, kill and destroy.
But our hearts are so blessed when we see someone who has never accepted Jesus find a relationship with Him and then we get to see what He does in their lives. Nothing gives us more joy than to see someone regain the relationships that they had lost, get jobs, get custody of their children, but most of all watch them begin to make a difference in the community. When they begin to tell their story of finding Jesus and what God has done in their life, it makes this ministry so exciting to be a part of.
The thing is when all of us get saved, we all are to get out of the church and share Jesus with everyone we meet. We all have a ministry, we all have a testimony we can share, a journey with Jesus. Feel the blessing that only God can give when you reach out and share Jesus and they accept God's free gift of salvation.
Step out in faith and God will provide your needs and will give you encouragement through people,divine appointments to stay on the path on the journey that He has planned for you.
God bless all of you. If we can ever be of any help to you or someone you know, our phone numbers are on the webpage.
