For years, I have been praying for those in Huntington Green caught in the bondage of addiction. Our strategic plan at the beginning of 2018 included a goal for an adult recovery program. Prayers for God to bring forth a champion to lead the program were constant. In June, at a funeral for a young adult from the neighborhood, I again prayed earnestly for God to send someone.
The very next week, at our ice cream social led by Elevation Church (volunteers from their Love Week), I met and spoke with a couple about my prayers. These two individuals, who are NA participants and have been sober for years, told me they, too, had been praying for an opportunity to share their journey. God’s divine appointments are amazing! In His timing — through sweet ice cream sundaes and the provision of the perfect space (Resource Center)
— God is bringing about His will for our neighbors. NA is now meeting weekly on Thursday evenings in the neighborhood.
