Greeting Saints, 3/17/14
2014 is already off to an incredible start. As we continue to grow our outreaches, homeless works, drug programs and affiliates, we have specifically concentrated on our largest endeavor, our overnight stay facilities.
The Disciple House is one such facility. It is a men’s half way house program that is designed specifically around salvation and Biblical principles. Our program must be applied for and we only take the ones that we believe are trying, the best they know how, to surrender to Christ. Men that live here actually work for our furniture store and build new dorm rooms for future clients. They have a very rigorous schedule and routine. Clients go to church 3 to 5 times a week, have Bible study and Bible class 2 to 3 times a week, they do their own laundry, cooking and cleaning and have to meet specific requirements in order to stay in good standing with the program. While staying at The Disciple House they report to a dorm monitor, a teacher, a Pastor and Brother Todd on a daily basis. While living at The Disciple House, all clients attend Bethany Holiness Church full time, attend many other special services and they have dedicated times at night to pray and study together. We also make sure t As they progress they are assisted in making sure that they have no warrants, get all proper identification, apply for jobs until they receive one and then get into an apartment of their own.hat there is good clean fun and fellowship every week.
The men that are with us today are an amazing group of guys. They have problems ranging from addictions, homelessness and severe financial crisis. We do all that we can to love and help them all. Our clients as of today range in age from mid 50’s to early 20’s. Sin, Satan and circumstance are equal opportunity destroyers.
The Disciple House is only one of the overnight stay facilities that we are currently administrating and supporting. We haverecently donated more beds and more materials to The Life House that is run by our affiliates in Kentucky.
I have heard many ministers over the years preach, teach and complain from their pulpits, about the thieves, addicts, dead beat dads and so forth, in their communities, but our staff is literally, 24/7/365, DOING something about it. It has been a long and rigorous 18 years of ministry to get to this point, but to watch these guys clean up, repent, work, fight through, discuss, question, overcome, get to see their kids, be reunited with family, pay their debt to society and accept the debt that Christ paid for them……..makes it all worth while. Will you help sponsor The Disciple House and our other outreaches? We literally have to buy all of their food, sheets, towels, toiletries and much of their clothes every month in order for them to stay here.
These men are real people. They are husbands, fathers, children, nephews and friends. They hurt, they cry, they apologize and they repent. Together with the help of HMA, our many supporters and God Almighty, they are being changed. We are truly, now more than ever, reaching the least, the last and the lost.
Please continue, or begin, to partner with us. We desperately need more prayer warriors, more monthly supporters and more 15 passenger vans. God bless each and every one of you. I hope to see as many of you as possible this summer and fall as I evangelize, itinerate and preach several revivals, camp meetings and conferences.
Your humble servant,
Rev. D. Todd Sloggett
