20 May VIDEO: Partner Update
Hi, I’m Jay Height here giving you this week’s update on the road to recovery, what’s happening at Shepherd community.
Well, you may recognize these they’re called Legos. Legos come in different shapes, different sizes, different colors, but they all have this in common, they connect on the top and on the bottom, just like us. We’re made to connect to God and to each other. And that together, when we come together, we build things. And in Shepherd community. Our family ministries is working very hard to build foundations in the lives of our families. Foundations that maybe haven’t existed, so they’re working to help them build a process to, one, know that someone cares for them and loves them. That they have a relationship and so the foundation starts very basic there. We’re connecting with them, maybe to build a foundation for them to understand and have the skills necessary to get a job and keep a job. We have them working on their financial plan.
And so what happens each and every day is family ministries at Shepherd community are building a foundation in the lives of our families so that they can continue to build themselves up, that they can begin to achieve what they were created for and so that they can connect. At the end of the day, what the family ministries of Shepherd community’s doing on the road to recovery is there letting people know they matter, connecting to them and helping build a foundation. It’s a beautiful story, and it’s a story we’re excited about by the countless numbers of folks that we’re helping navigate their way through getting rent assistance or helping them get job training, or helping them know how to fill out the medical forms and get the medical insurance they need. It’s a wide variety of things that are happening, but they’re happening every day because you help and support us and because we have a group called family ministries here, that’s looking at the family and saying, how do we help them build a foundation? We’re all Legos created for connection. We’re on the road to recovery, won’t you join us?
