My son is doing so well!!! I don't feel like i can say enough, or that words can describe the gratitude that I have for the Shepherds Fold Crew. My son has come a long way and I am so very proud of him. Thank you to all of the families for supporting the Fold and all the speakers/ministers that give their time to these guys. Keep up the good work! Thank you to God for everything he does and is!!!
I don't remember most of my childhood, but what I do remember has haunted me for most of my life.
When I was seven years of age, my mother was in the process of leaving my step father. The day we were going to leave, my mother dropped me off at school. I remember asking if I could go with her and help her with everything, but she wouldn't let me. After school that day, my mother never came for me. My Uncle arrived later, and told me my mother had been in a car accident and was killed.
Immediately all the bad things my step father had ever done entered my mind. It was two years before I returned to school.
Everyday I became filled with more and more rage towards my step father, until finally I snapped. I went and got a gun, and was planning to hurt him. I never went through with it, and later found he was drinking and driving and had been in a car accident, killing the other family and crippling himself.
Years went by and even after all the time, I still carried around hatred and unforgiveness. I became addicted to drugs and had been using since i was 14 years old, in and out of jails and rehabs. At the age of 21 I finally hit rock bottom. I needed help, and the Lord heard my cry.
I was introduced to Shepherds Fold from a friend, and as soon as I walked in the doors, I felt a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders, and at that moment I knew I was exactly where I needed to be. I felt love, and learned how to love. Most of all I let go of the horrible things of my past, and I found peace in the Lord and no longer let those things run my life. Jesus Christ literally saved my life!
It is a wonderful thing to see such a change in these guys in such a short time! So glad they are part of our family! Keep up the great work you are doing Steve and Crew.
I have heard highly of this ministry and the great work the Lord does through it. Lord willing, as He provides, my wife and I hope to be a blessing and help in the mission that the Lord has mandated on Shepherds Fold. May the Lord continue to bless you, and use you, and meet your every need!
