Happy New Years From Open Door!
Message from the Executive Director
Salutations Friends: I pray this finds you healthy and happy. We have had numerous opportunities to see the hand of God at work in the hearts and lives of the women who have come into Open Door. My eyes are leaking as I reflect on this past year. As you know, I will ALWAYS list our number one need as PRAYER. If you could take just a few minutes out of your day to pray for us, He will bring all we need. I rely heavily on Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do and He will show you which path to take.” The biggest blessing we have had this year is that we were able to BURN THE MORTGAGE!! So now in 2017, as we mentioned in last year’s news letter, we can move forward to help our women with a better exit program. Helping them to transition out of Open Door and into society with confidence and support. For this we owe all of you a great big thank you for your love and support during 2016. We want to have this mission continue to grow and with God in the lead and guiding our way, we will be able to help more women each year. Attached is a copy of a letter received from Kimberly, one of our angels who stayed at Open Door Recovery House for a little over a year. A picture is also attached. She has grow so much during this time and as you read you will feel her sense of accomplishment. We are very happy to say that Open Door’s success rate has continued to exceed the national average. To date 2016, we have had 23 women come into Open Door. Four of these women did not stay the required 30 days to qualify as a resident. Of the 19 remaining women 14 are still sober. A 73% success rate. As in prior years, this is a “God Thing;” what a miracle! If you have any questions or would like any further information, I would be happy to share with you in greater detail.
Peace be with you,
