We purchased the snacks for the Kids Revival and the 100 kids Easter Jesus Bags. We also are providing materials at the revival like Bibles, devotionals, and other Christian books to grow in ones faith and be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Please pray for the April revival and if you are able to contribute financially, please consider giving on our website. Thank you and may God bless your family abundantly.

We had a great Christmas Giving Program for 2022. The recipients were truly blessed and appreciative. Every person received presents for their children from Toys for Tots, a filled stocking overflowing from Ivy's Treasures Stockings for each child, a handmade blanket for each child from The Linus Connection, extra gifts, the teenagers were given presents sponsored by The Methodist Church in Smithville, families in need of Christmas Eve dinner are being made by The Texas Firewalkers in Rosanky, families were prayed over and given Bibles for adults and children. Most families were in tear and very emotional during the praying and hugging after they received their gifts. It was truly our joy and pleasure to be there to minister and pray with these families.
Our 3 volunteers at the event were a pillar of strength for the success of God's Word and ministry to come through. Thank you to all the volunteer support and love for these families and continuous prayer.
Meet One of The Families
One of the families had been struggling with depression and emotionally distant from reality as the Christmas holiday approached. Samantha spent several hours during the weeks leading up the the Christmas event ministering to the mother on the phone and giving Christ-like encouragement. One day when the mother felt hopeless and her power had just gotten turned off, Samantha was able to connect another ministry that helps with utility bills so her power could get turned back on. The connection was successful and her power was back on in only a few days. Her demeanor changed and the mother began decorating for Christmas in preparation of the Christmas presents she would receive at the DLR Christmas Program.
Upon arriving at the DLR Christmas present pickup, she was so excited and could not believe all the goodies she received for her children. After the families "shop" for their children's presents they are required to talk to one of the people at DLR to pray with them and receive their family gift from us.
She went to receive her family gift and was so excited to get a children's bible, along with other discipleship resources. We had the opportunity to pray for her it was on time for her as she was baptized at Calvary Baptist Church Smithville 16 years ago and was needing prayer. Healing happened for her and she walked away at peace with God and herself. Our 1 year old baby was putting his hand on her shoulder while we prayed and after the prayer she said she "felt chained falling off her and the devil no longer had a hold on her."
Talk about God's miracles!
Yay We Got More New Books!
We are pleased to announce a new book order has arrived for us to disperse during the Christmas Present Toys for Tots Family Event and February Men's Retreat.
