Dear Family and Friends,
Criminal Domestic Violence, Drug Addiction, Mental and Emotional Disabilities, Sex Trafficking, Poverty and many more statistics are at an alarming all-time high in our state and our communities. I believe the time has come when we, Brothers and Sisters in Christ, should "stand up"and do something instead of just shaking our heads and talking about it!! God's Word says, "For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore, I COMMAND YOU...You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land." (Deuteronomy 15:11)
My heart breaks as I look around and see the families and homes that are destroyed by the vices of the enemy. I know there is not always "quick fix" and some do not want to turn their life around.....HOWEVER, I am stepping out in faith and obeying the call that God has placed on my heart. If I can bring HOPE to the hopeless, and give some a reason to LIVE, by all means I will do everything within my power, as equipped by the Lord, to make a difference in Orangeburg and surrounding areas.
With that being said, I am humbled and excited to introduce "Spoken For..."Ministries, Inc. This is an outreach ministry to Orangeburg and all surrounding communities. It is for women of all backgrounds, denominations and cultures. My prayer is that it will far outreach the walls of our churches and reach the hopeless, helpless and emotionally damaged in our areas.
The purpose of "Spoken For..."Ministries is to provide a place of refuge, a safe haven, and a place to find hope and healing. One avenue that God has provided for this is our new "House of Hope" located at 955 Riverside Drive. This house will serve as our ministry base station and community outreach center.
This ministry will search out, seek, call out to and help women who have been emotionally broken, abused, scarred, damaged, discarded and/or left without hope or without help. These women are not strangers; they are mothers, wives, daughters and sisters all around us. Our goal is to see these women restored, made whole and complete in every area of their lives, namely: Spirit, Soul and Body. This restoration will in turn enhance her progression to meaningful and lasting relationships with God, family and friends. Our prayer is that, by faith, each women, who chooses to do so, will walk into her destiny which God has created for her.
Some of the methods we will use to reach out to women are:
- One to One Accountability and Mentoring w/Counseling and Prayer
- Life Groups (small group Bible Study)
- Life Skill Classes
- Workshops and Seminars
- Conferences and Retreats
- Creative Arts
