Dear Family Member:
We received a greeting card that said, “Distance Makes the Heart 6 Ft. Fonder.” Well, we are practicing social distancing, washing our hands and wearing masks.
This Coronavirus – COVID 19 has turned the world upside down ‘overnight.’ The Testimonies for the Church, vol. 9, pg. 11 says, “Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones.” We are alive to witness these rapid changes that are taking place. It lets us know that Jesus’s coming is sooner than when we first believed. It is uplifting to know that this world is sustained by the compassionate love of God. He is with us and nothing will happen without His guidance.
During these perilous times, there are many souls to be brought to the truth. Cliff, the prodigal, was far from his Father’s house, perishing from drug addiction. In return for the great love Christ has loved him, he chose to offer his time, his talents, his means – all to flow in a tide of love for the saving of men addicted to drugs like he was. He uses his possessions in unselfish services and gives his undivided energies to do the work God has called him to do.
The task at hand is the scraping and repainting of the recovery home and installation of more showers to accommodate the men. Thank you for the funds you have given for this special project. As you can see, we are well on our way to complete the work.
In addition to seeing the tangible results of your gifts for the project, you have witnessed the work of redemption in the lives of men like 2003 graduate, Bruce Nutt. He served this ministry untiringly through time spent helping and encouraging his brothers, liberal monetary gifts and as our devoted photographer. He passed away last month from lung and kidney failure. He loved this ministry with all his heart. He would have celebrated his 5th Wedding Anniversary on April 19, 2020 with his lovely wife, Rodaline. Their marriage was made in heaven. She supported Bruce wholeheartedly in the ministry. What a legacy of dedication and service he left for his DAP family. We pray especially for his wife as she adjusts to a life without her soulmate.
As you give to God to assist Drug Alternative Program, from that moment, your gift bears His inscription. Enjoy your substance as you use it for the blessing of God’s work. There is more work to be done and the magnitude of our work calls for willing generosity on your part. We ask God to return your gift one hundredfold for you to continue helping those in need.
Thanks a million, and that really doesn’t begin to cover it.
In His love,
