As 2016 comes to an end, it is with great hope that we look forward to 2017. Our hope comes not from great financial success nor from the great things we have accomplished in 2016. It comes from the hearts of the people we have met and served over 2016. When we started Shadow of His Wings Ministry over 10 years ago, it was because of a hope that Jesus placed in our hearts that the broken-hearted really could be healed; after all, He had done it for us.
This ministry has always been based upon a philosophy of “Jehovah Jireh” or “God is our provider”. When we first embarked on the mission of Shadow of His Wings Ministry, it was out of a one-time gift provided by a man in our church of $2000.00. His words were simple, “God asked me to give you this so that you could start His ministry.” He knew nothing of the stirrings in our hearts, nor had we talked to him about the vision that the Father had already given us. From then on, our counseling services have been provided on a donation basis and we have never turned anyone away based on their ability to pay. It is our heart and it is our purpose. Have we struggled? Yes. There have been many who have said that we should charge, that we should turn people away that can’t pay. But God has always reminded us of His plan and His purpose.
The folks we serve are a mission field. Many are broken, downcast, and hopeless people, who question their very worth, as well as God’s love. We are not your typical “counseling practice”, we are a healing and hope ministry. We believe the people we serve find something more than the current ‘theory of the day” or the message “love yourself”. We believe those we serve find Love Himself. We believe those we touch find a Person, a Promise, and a Purpose in their lives. Of course, we know that we don’t do this, but it is our Hope that does it, Jehovah Rapha – God our Healer. We hope you will join us in this journey and help support the work we do.
