HHC Devotion & Lunch Poster

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone that helped ring the Salvation Army bells! Each year the Hardee Help Center hosts the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign. All funds are designated to the HHC and administered throughout the year to help families in Hardee County. This year’s Red Kettle Campaign brought in a total of $9,128.21!! The Hardee Help Center could not fulfill its mission without dedicated volunteers. With heartfelt appreciation, they would like to invite all 2019 HHC volunteers AND 2019 Salvation Army Bell Ringers to join them as they celebrate service in ministry at the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Monday, February 10th, at 6:00 PM at Florida’s First Assembly of God. Please RSVP by January 31st by completing the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on-line Registration form, or calling 863-773-0034.

Pray for Nathan!!

“A picture is worth a thousand words…”
Meet Nathan, one of many local teenagers looking for a Forever Family through adoption.
This charismatic, smart, friendly, and playful young man has a big smile bound to make anyone’s day brighter! Nathan loves to be active and is a hands on learner who would love to participate in activities such as football, boxing, and Tae Kwon Do. He enjoys listening to both rap and country music and he aspires to go into the Military after high school. Nathan is looking forward to being a part of a family who will be there to cheer for him and support him unconditionally. He will thrive with a family who are easy-going, nurturing, positive, and open to allowing continued contact with people important to him.
Please take a moment and pray that Nathan may find his Forever Family.
I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him.”
~ Samuel 1:27
(Please continue to pray for Lily, as she is still looking for her Forever Family. A new church is joining us in praying for Lily; therefore, her sign was moved to that church.)

Missionary Update from Justin & Steffani

2019 was a big year for us, and we wanted to take a moment and say thank you for being a part of it.

In ministry, we helped create 3 new jobs and started an entrepreneurship school! We also made friends with a Muslim couple from Turkey and are continuing to develop that friendship. Stef volunteered her time teaching English to immigrants.

In personal life, we moved back to the states after 2 years in Spain. We visited almost all our supporters the first few months of the year before we moved to Louisville where Justin’s job is located. Justin went down to the Dominican Republic once a month starting in May. We unfortunately had a miscarriage in September followed by a neighbor’s fire in October that displaced us for several weeks. We moved into a house in December. We visited family in IL and TN a couple times and they visited us (have to make up for not seeing the grandson too much the first 8 months of his life!  🙂 )

Through it all, we’ve seen God’s faithfulness in providing through you, His people and our supporters. Thank you for allowing God to use you in our lives whether you invest prayerfully or financially. It’s humbling to think of all the love that has been poured out on us this year through our trials and we can only hope to repay some of that as well as pay it forward.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Justin & Steffani Hemming (and Baby David too!)
