John 3:16... More than a Bible Verse!


It's a Ministry!



My granddaughter thought she was only going to a Fish Fry!

She was in for quite a surprise!
Although we were not late,
the place was already filled.
We were lucky to find a seat!

The "servers" made an impressive sight
in their red shirts as they stood on the sidelines.


Chairs turned toward the podium
as excitement about the entertainment mounted.



The reason for the Fish Fry became clear,
as the Hopper duo took the stage.
They have been instrumental in making our area
aware of this ministry to help
men overcome addictions.

There was lots of good entertainment...
among them my favorites -
The Bill Pittman trio,
featuring Bill and Perri Pittman,
and my pastor's wife, Annette Lipsky Bailey.

Applause broke out as the funding goals were reached!

The "Moms On A Mission"group
had a big part in helping reach that goal!
There's nothing like the passionionate speech
of a mother of a recovering addict to reach into
your heart and pocketbook!
...Especially when the evidence
of this ministry is changed lives!


The evening ended in prayer and praise to God!


My granddaughter was impressed!
So was I!

Today's Joy4Today is linking with Jenny Matlock for her
"Warm Heart Wednesday"
where you will find many uplifting and cheerful posts!

And by the way, Rock4Today has a new post
featuring the Names of God on Rocks.
Toyota may have a "FORERUNNER",
but it's got nothing on Jesus!

That is awesome.We have a similar organization in Manitoba,called Teen and Adult Challenge.It is like a boot camp for those with addictions and is doing a great work.Always good to hear how God is working all around us.

What a good cause! People need help. Addictions ruin many lives.
