Perseverance

Starting a women’s faith-based rehab from scratch is not for wimps!

A mom of 5 kids, fighting cancer and had 17 days sober that day–she came up to me after I spoke at a 12-step meeting. Let’s call this mom, “E”. She is my age, and a “functioning alcoholic” who has a stable white collar job yet she told me that she couldn’t hide her drinking from her kids. They no longer wanted to be around her.

You see, it is my 17th anniversary month (Aug 31st) of being sober, and it was her 17th day sober! I am battling the possibility of cancer, and she definitely has been fighting cancer.  “E” reminded me of how important perseverance is.

It took extreme guts for her to do something about her drinking when she found out her kids didn’t want anything to do with her anymore–all five! She is showing up and doing the work so she can get her life back, and thousands of alcoholic and drug addict women have a similar story.

It’s been over 15yrs since Recovery House of Worship started a men’s faith-based rehab.  But since then, women require far more service. We haven’t been in a position to offer a faith-based rehab until this year!

Rahab’s Refuge is opening, prayerfully, this year in FL. We are working on the initial stages of the one in NY, and others are being prepared in places like Puerto Rico as well!

It has been a year of extreme trials and tribulations for me as one of the missionaries He is using to start these Rahab’s Refuge homes. I know those trials are a form of spiritual warfare that I can choose to see as the testing of my faith where perseverance can be developed.

A perseverance that will only bless, by His grace and power, hundreds of women that come through Rahab’s Refuge so that kids can get their mommies back!

James 1:4

“Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

Each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other.

We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work and fellowship.

We believe that to these visible churches were committed for observance “until He comes,” the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; and that God has laid upon these churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master. We believe that righteous living, good works and proper social concern are essential products of the gospel.

We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
