It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since Hope for Addiction began! 

For weeks I poured through photos and documents of the history of Hope for Addiction in anticipation of the launch of our 10th anniversary. It was an emotional process as forgotten moments were highlighted and special moments relived. While memories fade, what remains clear is…

God has moved mightily, this is His work and He loves the hurting!

 
The goodness of the Lord over the years has been overwhelming. The number of people who have participated through mentoring, planning, building, giving and participation is countless, yet God knows each one intimately. 

As we celebrate this amazing milestone—a decade of hope, commitment, and unwavering support—I find myself humbled by the immense impact of the gospel in the lives of many.

 

Ten years ago, Hope for Addiction was a seed of an idea, a mission to make a difference in the lives of those battling addiction by bringing practical application of the gospel to everyday struggles. Today, because of you—our compassionate and generous donors and volunteers—that seed has blossomed into a garden of hope, touching the lives of hundreds.


We have special things planned over the next year to celebrate and I hope you will take time to engage, reflect, remember, give thanks to the Lord who has done great things and look to the future where Hope for Addiction continues to be a beacon of light and transformation for those in need.

Thank you for being a vital part of 10 years - a DECADE OF HOPE!

I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all 

your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our 

God? You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.

Psalm 77:11-14

What's Happening

Here are the highlights of our current efforts and needs. We invite you to pray, participate and partner with us as we walk out the mission to bring Hope for Addiction. We've also included a few progress reports on ongoing initiatives.

Choose one to start exploring:

New Church Partners

At the end of April, Niagara Gospel Mission in Niagara, NY will be trained for Recovering Hope ministry with a launch in Summer.

The Bridge Bible Church in Somerset, WI will relaunch Recovering Hope after some changes in their church. Training is set for February. 

Redeemer Bible Church in Gilbert, Arizona is preparing to start Recovering Hope and training will begin in the coming months.

When a church enters into dark places with the light of the gospel, it is common to experience opposition

Please pray for these churches as they prepare to serve the hurting in their communities.

Curriculum Updates

Translation:

Translation of the Recovering Hope materials is underway for both Spanish and Portuguese! A church in Brazil is planning to launch Recovering Hope next year, and translation is underway!

TWO video curriculum series:

Production of a 5 part video series, Beginning Hope will begin in the coming weeks. A trailer for this series will preview in the next couple of months. The final scripts are being finalized and illustrations for the first video are complete. Please pray that this series will impact many as the message of the gospel is proclaimed with simplicity and honesty.

The outline for a new curriculum for churches is underway. This series will be a deeper presentation of the gospel: from creation and the fall, God's rescue plan- the gospel, the response of repentance and living for Christ.

Please pray for all involved in producing these materials and that many will hear the good news of Christ.

Liberty House

For the past four years, grants have helped fund Freedom House and helped open Liberty House earlier this year. In God's wisdom, he has not granted us funding in this way for 2024.

Please pray for funding for 2024 and wisdom for our Board as difficult decisions must be made. We believe God will provide and are praying for provision.

Our first devotional!

Writing a devotional is something we have been working on for two years and we are pleased with the final outcome! Already the response has been incredibly positive. The truths are so simple, but with deep theological implications.

"I need this devotional! It helps in the moments when my mind is racing

and I need to be reminded of God's truth."

"Anchored in Hope is an amazing gospel truth booklet. I love it."

"I love this devotion, buying for some gifts."
