Happy Birthday, Kevin!!

Join us in wishing Kevin a happy birthday!

The first Friday of each month is birthday celebration day at The Hope Center. In May, we were able to celebrate Kevin. And our good friend, Stormy, baked another delicious cake for the party!

Kevin arrived at The Hope Center at the beginning of August, 2012.  He came to Hagerstown after previously being at the Central Union Mission in Washington, D.C.

Kevin says, “I was spiritually bankrupt and severely lost my way in all directions in my walk with God.  I stopped everything: no Bible study, no church, no prayer.  I stopped my involvement with prison ministry.  No communion with God at all.”

Kevin joined our Foundations program and promised God that he would finish the program and would let God have control of his life.

The Foundations program at The Hope Center is a 13-month life recovery program where the residents learn to break the destructive addictions and habits that Satan was using to destroy their lives. While in the Foundations program, the guys faithfully study the Word of God and grow closer to Him in their recovery. They are able to get their lives back on track spiritually, physically and emotionally and are able to mend many broken relationships from their dark past.

Kevin is excited about the future and plans on graduating in early Fall of 2013.

Kevin says, “God has revitalized my spirit and renewed my spiritual drive to do His work, whatever He has for me.”

In addition to the classes that he’s a part of in the Foundation program, Kevin is a cook’s assistant in Food Services and also works in the check-in office in The Hope Center.

Please remember to pray for Kevin and all of the other guys who are trying to get their lives back on track and live the life that God designed them to live. It’s not an easy road to recovery but with the prayers of faithful supporters like you, guys like Kevin have a chance to become both spiritually and physically reborn!

We want to thank you for supporting this ministry of rescue at The Hope Center. From prayer support, to financial support, to volunteer support and in-kind donations (food, gently used clothing, shoes, furniture, etc), you are truly helping to change lives for God and bring hope to so many who are lost and alone. Thank you for caring & sharing with those in need!
