"Be Still and Know"

My name is Larry Harper. I am a recovering addict and alcohlic. I was addicted to drugs and alcohol for over twenty years. In and out of jails, hospitals, and rehabs. I just couldn’t seem to find my way until the year 2007 when I was in the county detention center awaiting trial. I had been there for about 1 month and had about 4 more months to go before my trial. I had heard of Jesus Christ, but I didn’t really know Him. While I was in the detention center I asked for a Bible. I began to read the Bible and I began to learn more and more about Jesus. As I studied the Bible I was introduced to some people who helped me grow stronger in my faith. I began to distant myself from inmates who weren’t studying God’s word. I stopped doubting and started believing in Jesus. I became steadfast in my faith.

I was also worried about my career and what the next step would be for me. I felt as though I wasn’t really sure where things were going in my life and I was almost in an emotional turmoil.

Wisdom to be a Blessing

In late June I received a phone call from La Toya about a possible Be Great! opportunity. It involved a townhouse in the Germantown area where the fence had fallen on disrepair and the HOA had contacted the homeowner with three options and more importantly a time limit until further steps were to be taken to rectify the problem.

God is still God

On Wednesday, January 18, my family went to church as usual expecting Pastor Dale to continue his Prayer and Praise series.  We were met by a wonderful surprise - the whole evening was spent praying for a variety of situations.  My husband has been out of a job for almost 2 years.
