Awards are great for a moment, but the Ultimate Award is given every time someone shares their love with us by donating time or material, every time one of our ladies is doing well, every week when ladies come to the MRT program, partners who who give faithfully every month, everytime someone surprises us with a check, everytime someone does office work for 4-5 hours, Fundraisers for us, etc. All of these are a display of God's Love, because he loved all of us first. See, the Award is given to one person, the "Face" so to speak. But these Awards are not given because the "Face" to the mission is great or special. The Award is given as a result of the accomplishments and success of the organization. The organization is not one person, it is ALL OF THE ABOVE! The Owner, the President, the Founder, those are the "Faces; the employees, the volunteers, the helpers, those are the ones who create the success that makes the Award possible, and only because they believe in the Owner, the President or the Founder of the Company. They give their sweat and tears and time and energy out of devotion, out of love for the mission, not the "Face"! We hope that by our mission, our lifestyle, our testimony, our love that we portray the love of God, the need for Jesus. It is our main mission so that this Home will succeed well. The Ultimate Award will be our time in Heaven, forever, with the one who loved us first, God Himself, who was, and is and will always be. He pursues us and hopes that we will simply believe in Jesus, live for Jesus, love like Jesus. We know that people love us because God first loved them, like He did us! We are excited to see what happens, not only with our ladies, but all those who love us and perhaps now see a glimpse of God's love. AND In a day and age where the economy is so despairing and money is hard to give, we give thanks: For all(over 180) of our Volunteers, Contractors, LPHS Building Trades Class, Restaurant Owners, Friends, etc. who've saved us approximately $55,000 in demo work and food for our Crews. We thank God for choosing you, for loving us, and for sending you, for believing that our mission will continue to move forward. grateful, Sonshine
Although our home is far from completion, women are healing by programs offered in and after their time in Jail. They are fortunate because they have a support system. Hear the heart of Shelby:
"Please help our little town to make this happen. There are no recovery homes in laporte and helping us to create our first would not be a waste of your time. There are so many people around here who wound up living addicted lives because they didn't know how else to cope with the pain of their upbringing and the world around them.
By getting this home built asap we can take a major step toward breaking that cycle in our community. If you help us, you will be touching so many lives. You will even save lives and be a part of rehabilitating these women not only in their addictions but as mothers as well, so that their children may grow up with the love and support of good moms who will have the skills to teach those kids addiction prevention thanks to this home....for some, this has been a dream for a long long time. We have already come a long way in making this dream a reality. Now we just need help coming around the home stretch to open the wwrh. Please help us to do this."
WE AGREE, and local businesses need workers who can pass drug tests, work safely and increase productivity. We there for them in the Jail, so we can help them stay out of Jail.
