22 Veterans are taking their own lives daily due to PTSD and Addiction or both. It is estimated that over the next 10 years that 650,000 Veterans will die from addiction to opiodes and/or psychotropic meds. Our VA system is not the answer for our veterans and their families and we want to help change their lives and/or help them get their lives back. Our goal is to provide our soldiers and their families with an environment to heal spiritually, physically and emotionally through the love of Jesus. We have teamed up with churches (Sugar Creek Baptist), doctor’s, Memorial Hermann, counselors and more to help make this happen.
We have a Radio show Battlefield Connections on KKHT FM 100.7 THE Word and the upcoming weekly video series “Beyond The Battlefield… Overcoming Life’s Landmines” along with my personal story of overcoming these obstacles in my book God Is Bigger written with New York Times Best Selling Author David Gregory. These are all used as ministry tools to help inspire others to overcome life’s obstacles.
In 2014, a group of pastors and community leaders came together to address the need of family services in the Fulshear and Simonton areas. As a result, a new organization was formed, called Family Hope, to provide a place of compassion and transformation. Family Hope is the largest non-profit agency that exclusively serves northern Fort Bend County’s residents with medical assistance, food, rent and utility assistance, job searches, furniture and disaster relief.
COVID and Current Needs:
The coronavirus pandemic is creating urgent needs for our community. Bags of food items can be dropped off at our new office from 9am – 3pm. Spaghetti, Peanut Butter, Oatmeal, Tuna, Rice, Cereal, Beans and Hygiene products are examples of needed staples. We will be practicing social distancing to protect those donating. You can also visit our website to donate money for these items.
It is very satisfying to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. We invite you to do something that none of us could do alone. To engage in a prayer and worship movement that is sweeping the world with believers from every denomination, background and language coming together in unity pursuing the presence of God.
Imagine non-stop prayer with worship, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year right here in our city. Together we can do it, because Jesus is worthy of it.
