Fantastic Faith…

by Dale Walker

Matthew 17:20 says, “…Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.“ Fifty year-old George, a member of our New Life Recovery Program, showed me a growth on the side […]

God Divined Appointments

by Susan Strickland

I nearly missed it.  Do you ever find yourself running late?  Have you ever been speed walking towards the bus stop only to see your bus pulling away from the curb?  You are sure the driver saw you in his rearview mirror as he left you running after him, waving frantically.  But you missed it.  […]

Liberating for the Lord

by Perry

If you look up hero in the dictionary there very well may be a picture of 94 year-old veteran, Harold Williams next to it. I am left mesmerized each time I have the privilege of listening to his stories. You see, Harold was assigned to the 62nd Armor Battalion of the 1st Infantry Division in World […]

Wedding bells are ringing!

Answering Our Leader’s Call…

by Perry

Recently, as you may have heard on the news, Governor Andrew Cuomo has called on New York shelters to improve their facilities and services to the homeless.

Windows for Women

by Perry

The other day, I was taking a visiting pastor for a tour around our campus and we ran into one of the women who is a participant in our New Faith Program. She is nearing the end of her stay with us and was excited about what God has done in her life just in […]

A New Life in Christ

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17 I would like to tell you about James, one of our volunteers who is dedicated to this ministry and is a true example of a new life in Christ. James volunteers in many […]

Clinic Contemplations…

by Sarah Schoof

What does this picture look like to you…an ordinary grocery cart? Sadly, a man had to be a bit resourceful and make this ordinary shopping cart into a makeshift wheelchair for his wife; it was lined with a soft, pink blanket so he could transport her somewhat comfortably to our Free Clinic. Thankfully, generous folks […]

Outside My Window

by Susan Jones

My computer faces the window and every so often I gaze across South Pearl Street. Sometimes there are children running by, two people having a discussion, or George watering the flowers. But, this morning I noticed an older gentleman with shoulder length white hair and a cane, across the street. He offered his hand to a […]
