Freedom Life held its second annual Fireside event at Grace Community Church in Marion North Carolina. This year’s event was “in person” as well as virtual. At the event, Danny Hampton, Executive Director, interviewed two of Freedom Life’s current clients. Both shared their stories of recovery and how they are on the road to success.

We also had Brenda, the new afternoon DJ at 106.9 the Light FM, be part of the program and share her story of recovery. It was a beautiful night and special music was shared by Miss Willette Y. Mcintosh, David Grant, Kim Brown, all staff, and board members at Freedom Life. Heart Cry, the music department of Freedom Life, shared in a song featuring, “Let me tell you about my Jesus” and “Oh Holy Night”. This was Freedom Life’s year-end fundraising event geared toward giving Tuesday. freedom life ministries fireside event January 2022

Freedom Life has seen tremendous growth this past year in expansion, not only locally, but beginning regionally. Freedom Life relies on grants and donations to keep work going. We would encourage you to go online and read about what opportunities Freedom Life offers our community. Every community is impacted by drug use, incarceration, addiction, and sometimes just plain old bad choices. Freedom Life walks beside individuals who have faced these circumstances to help them achieve a bright future for them and they share that they do not have to walk alone.

This coming year Freedom Life will be participating and hosting several great events, so please keep up on our Facebook page and website here at the Blue Ridge Christian News.
