Greetings from SHLR,
We are coming to the close of another great year, that was filled with many challenges. Our staff has contributed many long and trying hours, but never giving up or giving in. We had many successes and accomplishments during the year. Men reuniting with their families, men hired full time at their job assignments, men reconnecting with GOD, as well as men being healed. We had a wonderful holiday season which started with Harvest Season, parties, great foods, and awards and festivities men were able to enjoy with invited families. Thanksgiving was an awesome experience, and clients and staff alike showed their thankfulness to God and each other. Christmas was a wonderful and enjoyable celebration of the birth of our Savior. The Christmas party and graduation for the month of December was a huge success, with over 30 family members, volunteers, and guests in attendance.
We have achieved great quarterly success with the help from the administrative support team; Ms. Ann, Jasmine, Melanie, Seth, AD Pastor Potter, DOO - Kenny Lane, VP - Kyle Bennett, and last but most definitely not least our Leader, The Man of God Pastor Brad Bowie. Thank you all for the support and leadership!!
We have seen an uptick in community support during this last quarter of the year with the help of Greater Friendship Christian Church, Healing Hands Ministries, Watershed Social Hospital, Pastor Demetrice Swift(Tyson Foods), St. Marks Baptist Church, Fellowship Bible Church, and many other private donors and supporters. Also, our volunteers' ministers have shown up in record numbers, for them all we are thankful. We are equally thankful to our partners at ACC, directors, managers, and all the officers that help provide opportunities for our men to succeed.
We at SHLR are looking forward to a prosperous new year to serve the Lord, with dedication and commitment. Isaiah 43 says God will do a new thing and you will see it with your eyes!!! Souls being saved, men becoming the men God has called them to be, and many victories on the horizon.
We are excited about the upcoming Battle in the Saddle barrel race in Jan 2022. The buzz about it is growing strong around SHLR, and many are wanting to participate in that success! Thanks again to all that support our commitment to serving our clients!
