Here's What's Happening @ Hope in February

As the month of January winds down, we are experiencing some sunny warm 60 degree days here.  We feel so blessed to be able to walk on the beaches, wear flip flops, and leave the jackets behind.  However, we do think and pray for our friends that are in the north that God would protect them from the snow and harsh temperatures.  We are so excited to see so many of our snowbirds returning and look forward to those that will be showing up next week.  We thank you for your prayers and support as we have almost completed the final build out.  We are excited about the opportunities that God has given to us to fellowship, serve, and reach out to those in the community.  We hope you will join us on the journey whether by prayer, attending, or financially supporting our efforts.  May God bless each of you as you seek to serve Him.
