So far the holidays at Favor House have been a blast! Most all of our residents were able to travel home to be with their loved ones over Thanksgiving. For those residents who did not take a pass to visit loved ones, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ogle provided a home cooked Thanksgiving meal! We want to give a huge thank you for them and their continued support of our ministry!
We were also blessed to enjoy a night off from cooking ourselves as New Haven Baptist of Athens, GA provided all of our residents with pizza night! Pastor Bryan Townsend meets with our residents weekly to hold a Bible study. We appreciate New Haven going above and beyond to show their love and support!
We are so excited to say that four of our residents, David S., David M., Timothy L., and Stuart E. were all baptized at New Haven Baptist Church! We are so proud of their decision to follow Christ and we are truly honored to be able to witness this part of their journey.
Favor House has offered our recent graduate Roddy Payne a position as our first Servant Leader. As a Servant Leader, Roddy will remain on property as part of staff and be a mentor to our newer residents coming into our program. He will also be able to help with driving, scheduling and in other areas where his talents and skills can be most beneficial. We are so blessed to have him as a part of our team!
We asked, and you provided! We are ready to roll with our Christmas decorations! Just like with Thanksgiving, our residents will be given the opportunity to visit with their families over the Christmas weekend. For those who choose otherwise, we wanted our house to feel like their home! We are so grateful for all of the donations we received in November for this holiday season! A number of our residents have already mentioned their excitement over helping decorate! We are looking forward to it!
As always, we couldn’t do this without YOU! THANK YOU!
