Boston Red Sox Spring Training Camp

Ephesians 5:2 "...and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God
as a fragrant aroma."


Spring is in the air which means baseball spring training in Ft. Myers Jet Blue Park! The ladies of Protected Harbor were invited on February 28, 2016 to join the Boston Red Sox for a day of training. Along with the Young Life Naples youth group and Goodwill groups, the ladies were escorted by Red Sox players for batting practice in the batting cages.  

It is reported by Kimber, one of our ladies home residents, that "Tiffany hit the most balls".  Tiffany agreed that she was a better hitter than Kimber and the other ladies. While Kimber and Tiffany both thought receiving autographs, hats, shirts and jerseys were the highlight, Tiffany said she just liked "hitting the ball".  Tiffany expressed that after this experience she might like to play softball which would be a great step for this special young lady.

Please pray that organizations like this continue to provide our ladies with these unique and enriching opportunities and to feel the love of the community!

Get to Know Kimber

Ephesians 4:15 "But speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ."
 
In the midst of the happy commotion in the kitchen of the ladies Protected Harbor home, Kimber, a resident, gets ready to join the group in decorating cupcakes.  There are several types of frosting and sprinkles set out on the kitchen island to spread on the vanilla and white cupcakes.  Seeing that this could be an issue with 8 people reaching for the frosting at the same time, Kimber scoops out some of the frosting from the jar on to her paper plate which she can use to decorate all of her cupcakes.  "I used do crafts with elementary age children," explains Kimber. She knows from experience how to make projects run more smoothly.  

All of our ladies are special and are God's beloved children.  We are so grateful for these opportunities to interact, socialize and rejoice in the blessings our ladies receive. Please pray for the continued enrichment and well-being of our ladies.

Praise for Rezoning Resolution!
 
Our prayers have been answered! On March 16th, the Lee County Board of Commissioners approved the rezoning resolution for the site of the future Protected Harbor home. 

There was a big concern that there would be objections to the rezoning at the hearing but thanks to your continued prayers, the process went very smoothly.

It was the final outstanding document for the ability to proceed with the Florida Housing Finance Corp award.  Another step that has been accomplished includes completing an environmental study that certifies that the building will meet federal state and local guidelines.

Protected Harbor is about to proceed into the credit underwriting process. Had this rezoning resolution been late, we would not have been able to move along to credit underwriting.  Once that is approved, we can break ground on our new home!  

Thank you to those of you who have prayed with us regarding this home throughout this past year. P lease continue to pray that God would grant us favor in the eyes of the County Commissioners as we move this process forward.
 
Proverbs 16:3
 "Commit your work to the Lord,
     and your plans will be established."



Thank you for your continued
prayers and support!
