“Sunday attendance was down this week due to family emergencies and illness; but Sunday evening, we were able to get a man sent to the Albuquerque ARP. Several Corps people came with me to take him to the Greyhound station and we prayed for him before his bus left.

“Project Hope met Z.M. and her daughter in the parking lot of an apartment complex where she had been staying with her significant other. He was repeatedly verbally and emotionally abusive and had kicked her out before, each time changing the locks. Previously, she would go and stay with her mother but that was no longer an option. She was with her child and all of her belongings and on hold with a domestic violence hotline. After placing several calls to Salvation Army Family shelter staff, they agreed bring the family in to the shelter immediately where she can safely start to work towards self-sufficiency. ”

“A soldier shared that last Sunday her son called and wanted to come over to do a Bible study with her. So she went over the sermon that I preached that morning. This week he made sure he was able to be at church as he is seeking God for himself, and not based on what his parents believe. Praise God for moving in his life and his willingness to respond. ”

“During our community dinner, we got together and celebrated the birthdays of our friends (homeless individuals) that visit us every week. The smile on the face and the joy to know that they are loved, and hear all the group coming together to sing happy birthday was great.

“Saturday was the first weekend with Major Terrie at the helm of the Ogden Family Store. It was also the first Saturday that the store had been above $2500 in many months.

“We have opened our Veterans Program in the shelter for a limited amount of men until the shelter has been completely remodeled. Captain Robbin Swales has dedicated 10 beds to Veterans Program with full time case management as part of the program.

Theo has been such an asset to our program with his wonderful personality, helping and giving spirit to the newcomers, and his strong faith in God.

“Thank you for celebrating with us as we share the success of David E. While he was incarcerated David was in fire camp helping California with several wild fires. It was then that he knew God had a bigger plan for him. He was referred to the Salvation Army ARC by the Sheriff's Transitional Assistance Re-entry Team (S.T.A.R.T.) after they noticed that he had a strong desire to change his life. David arrived at the ARC very grateful and humble and his attitude remained this way. He excelled in all areas of the program and after his graduation he applied and was accepted into the Lodi Culinary Arts Program. PRAISE GOD!”
