Dear Family Member,
Faith is the key that unlock the doors here at DAP. When we have faith in God, we don’t have to worry about God’s assignment for us to develop these 10 acres of land. We just know it’s all in His hands. We just go to and do our best. We know that faith lone is not enough for success. We also need willpower, discipline and persistence. We have taken positive action to show our faith. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “If you lose faith, you lose all.”
Spring has arrived and we are excited to share with you all the wonderful things happening at Drug Alternative Program (DAP). As always, we appreciate your continued support and generosity as we strive to make a difference in the lives of men struggling with addiction. The stakes are much higher and there’s no turning back. God has led this ship the entire way and it’s remarkable to see and experience new connections, almost on a daily basis. We’re so grateful for God’s continued leading and confirmation!
We would like to take a moment to welcome our newest client, Oscar Kahn, who has recently joined our program from Loma Linda, CA. Let us all extend a warm welcome to Oscar and remind him that he is now a part of our family here at DAP, where God’s love and kindness abounds. We’re looking forward to the time for sharing his dynamic and miraculous story of how the love and power of Jesus Christ rescued him from a life of guilt and shame. Won’t He do it? Hallelujah!
We are saddened by the loss of Pastor T. Marshall Kelly. He was a true inspiration and a remarkable individual who touched the lives of many. Cliff and I can recall just last year, we were on Pastor Kelly’s radio program, WJOU.
As a result, a listener from California who knew Cliff’s dad many years ago, realizing that Cliff was his son, connected with us. Then, when he discovered our life’s work, he was so impressed and had his church send a donation of $24,000 to DAP. We just never know the impact we’re making on others with our kind acts of love. These acts are never forgotten, and Pastor Kelly has a whole train of legacy to prove it. His dedication to serving the Seventh-day Adventist Church as a Pastor, Bible Teacher, and Singing Evangelist, will be missed. His “humble and loving nature” will always be remembered by all those who knew him. Pastor Kelly was a giant among giants; “a man after God’s own heart.”
Now, we would like to update you on the progress we have made on the land project. With your help, as we have mentioned before, we plan to build Storage Units, a Community Center, and a Recovery and Transition home to provide a safe and supportive resource for individuals committed to living faith- based, ad diction-free lives, and who’s become like family. These projects will help generate income for our program, allowing us to expand our services to those in need.
We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and invite you to partner with us in this mission. Your continued donations, big or small, will help us make a difference in the lives of men struggling with addiction.
Thank you, thank you, thank you again, for your continued love and support, and we look forward to sharing more updates with you soon. Our prayer is that God takes good care of you, and He will.
