We had a fishing tournament sponsored by the Del Webb fishing club. The event was held in the Del Webb community which has a number of ponds. Our winner had never been fishing and caught 5 cat fish within an hour and a half. Our hosts provided fishing equipment, fish bait and a little tudoring on how to catch'um. After the tournament we had a cook out at a volunteer's home. It was a great day and everyone enjoyed the time together. Thanks for a great day DWFC!
We had a pot luck dinner in June at a staff member's home. It was also a time to celebrate the completion of the year long progrm for three men. Each man was given the opportunity to speak in regard to the program and what it meant to them. It was touching and just pulled on our heart strings. There was a lot of wonderful food and many of our supporters were in attendance. What a wonderful blessing for all.
So often sin and ungodly lifestyles are portrayed as glamorous. The way of blessing, however, is the way of God. His will is for our good, his commands spring from his mercy and protection, and his way is the path of life. We are blessed when we walk with God and do his will.
We have an opportunity, generally one time a month to attend the Northwood church for a men's Saturday morning breakfast. First of all, the food is really great along with fellowship, praise music and a pastoral message that is strictly for men. Needless to say, it is just great to be have the opportunity to worship the one "True GOD" together.
We held another pot luck dinner on the 3rd of December at a staff member's home. It will was a time to celebrate with one another and the graduation of a man who completed the one year program. We have 4 grads thus far in 2016. There was a good chance for some great fellowship and love poured out to all who attended.
At Remnant House, our desire is to "Restore Men to their rightful position."
"The only way to keep from returning to active addiction is not to take that first drug. If you are like us you know that one is too many and a thousand never enough. We put great emphasis on this, for we know that when we use drugs in any form, or substitute one for another, we release our addiction all over again. Thinking of alcohol as different from other drugs has caused a great many addicts to relapse. Before we came to N.A. many of us viewed alcohol seperately, but we cannot afford to be confused about this. Alcohol is a drug. We are people with the disease of addiction who must abstain from all drugs in order to recover.
