“Taste of Christmas” 2018…Awesome!

Thx for those who gave money, food items, time, and hours of service to encourage 150 inmates + staff and other volunteers. We prepared 16 fried turkeys, 70 lbs. potatoes, 40 lbs corn, 36 lbs green beens, 3 trays of stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, Southern BBQ sweetea, many hand-made desserts, rolls, salad, and 23 volunteer servers!

Joey Wert (18 yr-old Boiling Springs High School senior) shared a story of God using cancer in a friend’s life to bring him and his family to Himself, then led 200 inmates and staff in prayer. Joe E. Hines Jr. shared his testimony and message of Jesus’ presence in our “storms,” taking us to new places with Him. This hand-drawn portrait was given in appreciation for your love and service by inmate Gary McAlister.

Scott has the flu…and finally time to write!

Thx for your prayers as Jesus, the PA at Doctor’s Care, Tamiflu, cough syrup, rest, and an awesome wife and 3 sons (Kelli, Carson & Cooper pictured here), all work together in perfect harmony to help Scott recover from this year’s strand of influenza B. (Shallow breath…cough, cough!). Once past the initiate stages, there has been time and energy for writing and updating the website.
