Residential Drug Recovery Ministry Coming To Mitchell County
By Bruce Cannon
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts (plans) that I think toward you, saith the LORD…”
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
The above two verses serve as “life verses” for me. They instruct and remind me that the Lord has plans, laid out before the foundation of the world, for us to live by. He has works for us to accomplish for His honor, glory, and purposes. He provides leadership. He opens the doors. He provides the resources, and He moves upon the heart of Christian folks to do the work. The will of God is always going to lie at the intersection of the needs of people and the gifts, talents, and abilities the Lord has given to meet those needs.
I am extremely pleased and excited to announce one of those needs is in the process of being met. The Board of Directors of the Mitchell County Recovery Ministries, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit corporation, is a passionate group of Christian men and women living in Mitchell County, who are in the process of launching a residential drug recovery ministry for women. How exciting! How desperately needed this ministry is!
The location will be in the Mitchell County area and will serve to meet the needs of women who are ready to have help in recovering from addiction. It will be a Christian ministry that will teach Biblical principles as the Board believes the only lasting help for recovery is through Christ.
The ministry, Never2Scarred, will be under the leadership of Jessica Williams as she serves under the direction of the Board of Directors. The initial capacity of women who can be served will be seven but there are plans to expand after the first year or so of operation. The Board is currently in the process of finalizing the location and will have so much more information to share by the printing of the December edition of the Blue Ridge Christian News.
How can you help? Pray. Pray for open doors and hearts for those living around to want to help contribute to this ministry. Pray that the Board of Directors will be so in tune with the Lord that every decision made will be exactly according to His Will. Pray for those struggling with addiction. Drug addiction literally affects every family to some degree!
How else can you help? Be listening for more information. Engage one of the board members to speak at your Church, civic meeting, prayer group, etc. Contact information will be shared through the December edition of the Blue Ridge Christian News.
Finally, thank the Lord with us that this ministry will be launching very soon and that He is going to abundantly bless it. Thank Him with us for the many lives which will be changed, physical lives, and souls saved. This ministry will provide “Help For Today and Hope For Tomorrow!” Amen! Thank You, Lord!
