Letter from the Director, Eric Alexander
Greeting in the name of Our LORD and Savior, 
These first 3 months of 2020 has come and gone, seeming like a blink of an eye! It's a blessing to be walking among the living in the land of the Lord. Our purpose and passion is to prepare a place where Jesus can lay his head!! In Luke 18:41 Jesus posed this question to the blind man, "What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?" Now my insight in addition to traditional commentary is, Jesus wanted to know how would him doing this benefit Gods purpose. So when his sight was restore, the bible says in 43 that he was healed immediately, followed Jesus and glorified God. That is truly my life story right there! When my eyes were opened and I saw the love Christ had for me, I accepted His way in replace of my own, and started following Him, and now My life is engulfed in worship to HIM!
 
We are so blessed to see all these men begin to grasp the importance of completing this program! We have had men that we thought would never graduate this program, step up and make the greatest turn around and attitude adjustment that they appeared to be a different person. We are forever grateful to our partners and friends that help in transforming these men's lives. We are thankful for every donation, every gift and act of love and kindness show to the men that we serve. We are excited once again for our upcoming Spring Revival that starts April 5th thru April 10. The power in the spoken Word, will save souls, heal brokenness, and restore men to their rightful place in God!

We are in the planning stage of our Spring Time festivities, our 9th Annual Pinnacle Mt. Friends and Family Outing, Weekend park Outings just to name a few. We look forward to the men getting to chance to be involved with wholesome recreation and fun!

I would like to spotlight Ms Ann Hollis for all the help and support she contributes to Safe Harbor Little Rock, she does all the screening for new clients for SHLR, and she really whips those approval out like nobodies business!! 3 cheers for Ms. Ann!
 
We at SHLR is in the mist of major construction and renovations, we are 70% complete with our Staff quarters and have plans to move to the clients living area by April. It's challenging to oversee the planning, prep and progress of the work, which Mr. James Duff is doing a good to great job by leaving no stone un-turned and putting forth efforts of excellence to build up the House of God!! Shout out to Him!

It is my honor and privilege to be apart of this ministry team!! The Lord has saved me from so much, and even at my best I've repaid so little.

All Honor and Glory belongs to HIM!!
