FOURTH QUARTER NEWS
LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR - DAVID ELKINS
Well I'm sure everybody was ready to get done with 2020! But for us to know Jesus is in control we have hope for 2021. No matter your politics, no matter your social economic status, Jesus is in control!

Although it's been a challenge winding through this year, I have seen God at work in miraculous ways. I've seen Tim, who I found at the side of a convenience store, flourish and rebuild his life under the guidance of Jesus Christ. I've seen men recognize their need for Salvation and cry out to Jesus and now have hope, true hope!

Also want to recognize some special people to the ministry; Brother Barry Jenkins in his precious wife Maria have guided us in growing our volunteer base more than we could ever imagined. With a fully vested volunteer base our guys or being exposed to true discipleship and guidance in life skills from men who have lived it.

To our many prayer partners and financial supporters thank you for your prayers and support. It continues to cover and bless us.

Looking to 2021 we are excited about being in our new Chapel and new offices early in the first quarter, and continue to transition our facility into more opportunities for more men. With a new donation promise of lumber our next stage of new kitchen in cabins is right at the crest of reality!

I want our men to see Jesus!

Matthew 5:8 (NASB) 
 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
 
To God be the glory!

We would like to introduce & welcome our new Admissions Coordinator, Mrs. Jeanne Williams.

"I am a married Mother of two grown children. Our family is about to be blessed soon with two grandbabies this coming June and July! Our family relocated to beautiful Tennessee last year, leaving behind a job and coworkers I absolutely loved. Since our arrival, it was important to me to find a permanent position where I feel gratification at the end of the work day. I believe I my wish has been fulfilled here at Safe Harbor. I look forward to presenting my office knowledge and work ethics in assisting the staff in helping others in their recovery. I thank Safe Harbor for their confidence in me and offering an opportunity to join the team!"

CLIENT OF THE QUARTER - SCOTT ROBINS
"I know everybody probably thinks that I've been a perfect angel all my life. Actually, I like to think of myself as a walking trash can putting poison in my body and leading others to a negative lifestyle. I've wasted most of my life in prison. Most of all, I was a terrible father, brother, and son. I always put my mindless needs and physical desires first before anything in life. Then something happened one morning I actually listened to my brother and friend in unit 3 in Morgan County prison. I believe it was late October 2019. He gave me a Bible. Later that week I got saved by rededicating my life to the Lord by allowing Jesus into my life. And the Holy Ghost to slowly work through my heart and mind. So the way I see it, I need to submit myself to the Lord humbly. In doing so, I have a new life in Christ Jesus."
BATTLE IN THE SADDLE 2021

Our largest fundraiser for each year is coming up. Our original date for our event was Jan 15 - 17, 2021, but due to the current Covid restrictions in Tennessee we have had to change our event date.

Our new date is March 19 - 21, 2021. We are excited that we are still able to have this event, even if we did have to change the date. It may be in our favor to have a little warmer weather in March!

We have contestants from all over the United States planning to compete at our event. Last year we even had a contestant all the way from Canada! We are excited to see how much we are able to raise this year for Safe Harbor.

If you are interested in sponsoring this event, please contact our Director to let him know that you would like to have more information on our sponsorship packages.
