We Have Been Richly Blessed This Past Year With The Privilege Of Serving Those In Extreme Poverty Throughout Rural Appalachian Communities. Working With Elementary Schools And Mountain Ministry Centers Located In Very Depressed Areas, We Feel We Are Making A Difference Helping Them Assist Those In Dire Need There. Our Hearts Truly Break For Those That Are Struggling In Areas That Offer Little Opportunity For New Jobs Or Prosperity. With The Closure Of More And More Coal Mines, There Are Very Serious Economic Challenges, Which Have Also Led To The Closure Of Other Businesses.

These Communities Have Also Suffered Additional Challenges These Past 2 Years With The COVID Healthcare Crisis.  It Has Put More Economic Hardships On Those That Live In Rural Appalachia.

Doing What We Do Year After Year…It’s An Incredible Blessing to Know That People Believe In Your Cause And Support Your Ministry Efforts. We So Appreciate Those Who Deem Us Worthy Of Their Donations And Their Volunteer Time…And We Are Immensely Grateful For Them. We Feel Privileged To Help Those On The Frontlines Of Rural Appalachian Communities… Serve Their Hurting People.

Thanks For Your Friendship And Support…Thanks For Your Prayers…Thanks For Helping Us Extend True HOPE In Rural Appalachia. May God Bless You And Your Families…With Hope Filled Hearts This New Year.

WE BELIEVE WITHOUT HESITATION AND WITH CHILDLIKE FAITH…THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE.

Sincerest Appreciation,

Emmette Thompson – Executive Director
