July 4th Celebration in Memphis
Testimony Tuesday: Meet Greg Kesler
"My name is Gregory Kesler, I am 49 years old and have been at Safe Harbor of Memphis for two months. I first attended this place in 2006 when it was called the Lighthouse and was taught the word of God by Pastor Kyle at the time.
Since I have been here this time I have been trusted with responsibilities in the kitchen and helping around the property which has given me the opportunity to serve God and my fellow man. I have been treated with respect and shown general concern. I really appreciate what God Is doing through the staff here in Safe Harbor of Memphis. I couldn't do it with out them!
~ Greg Kesler"

It was so great to have all the wonderful men of God who sacrifice a night of their time to come and bring a word that will change someone’s life forever. Pastor Kyle baptized his son and we baptized six of our own. 55 men made their way to the altar throughout the revival with hope to receive something from the Lord.

Celebration Sunday - February 2019 During the celebration Sunday night I have never seen so much joy from so many family members. Mothers testifying and breaking down with tears of joy about how grateful they were for Safe Harbor and the program. A sister saying “my brother is a different person I can't believe it.” Another mother testifying about how many years she has waited to see her son with a changed attitude and how she was so thankful for Safe Harbor. The client you see standing here, notice the cane he is holding. He is the client I posted about going to the hospital one night after turning in his graduation package, only to find out he had a stroke and couldn't use his left side. After talking to him and his family member, I told him that if he was unable to attend the graduation ceremony I would bring it and present it to him. But his family came and brought him to attend. The emotions were very high. His name is Mr. George Love.
Congrats to our seven graduates! Having their families there for support was awesome

“Sitting at the Memphis Airport waiting for my flight to Washington, D.C. to represent Safe Harbor at a Conference on the Opioid Epidemic that is ravaging our country. This is an extreme “Honor” to have been invited by the White House to attend this Conference and cause the “Light” to shine a little brighter upon this great company that we get to serve God in and through. My thought of the day is: “ Remain humble and thankful because humility and thankfulness prepares you for honors. Pride and Arrogance prepares us for destruction and falls. We have the privilege to choose the path we walk. We really never know everything God is working out and preparing for us. Choose God today....” Safe Travels Pastor Ron
Safe Harbor of Memphis’ Assistant Director... leading by example!

3rd night of revival in Memphis! The grace of the Lord was upon us, and we continue to see lives changed!
Safe Harbor of Memphis had another great revival night! Praise & Worship, The Word, Confession, Healing, and Testimonies. The anointing fell on the speaker and lives were changed!
Monday was the first night of the revival and it went off with a bang! The Holy Spirit was there and it took over. We started off with praise & worship. Pastor Kyle spoke from 2 King, the 5th Chapter verses 1 thru 14, about Naaman. Wow what a powerful word. 17 men rededicated their lives to the Lord! We are looking for another powerful night on Tuesday!
Proverb 28:20 Says "A faithful man will abound with blessings". Dwain Hicks, a student volunteer driver, was awarded a check in the amount of $100 for Pre-Trip Inspection.

Special Thanks to Mr. Hicks for following protocol and understanding the importance of pre-trip inspection.
We had a great weekend in Memphis with our once a month outing this month was the WATERMELON and the HORSESHOE tournament, all the watermelon you can eat and a change to win a $25 dollars first place and a $15 dollars second place prize. Will Jackson 1st place and James Watkins 2nd place
Congratulations to Keith Taylor from our Memphis location for being awarded Reliable Student of the Quarter. Keith Works at Brims Snacks and is scheduled to graduate in October. This is our very first time ever doing this for the quarter. Each student was given a certificate,ceremony and $100.00 for their achievement!
May 2017 Our revival last week was a great success! The Spirit of God moved in an awesome way. I believe all the speakers were led by the Spirit of God in the word they spoke. Jesus said in John 3:8 "The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it come from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit." I can see it working in our participants as they realize a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is the source of wisdom, patience, and power. We need to honor God, help others, and meet the challenges of today. These men want to have dominion over every thing as God said and not let it have dominion over them. - Pastor Charles Sims

Mission Update! Recently at Safe Harbor we have been working on improving our facility to better serve the 65+ men in our care. We are striving to do a Great Work at Safe Harbor of Memphis – both in house and in the community. We want you to join us in our quest to heal this WORLD one person at a time and a great way to make our participants feel important and valued is to have clean, up-to-date, and fresh facilities. These pictures represent some of the makeovers we have been working on to give our property a much needed face lift. I am asking you to be a part of our movement by donating money, time, or materials. Your contributions will help us to better care for the men we are helping rebuild their lives. You can sponsor building materials which can range from paint, tools, tile, landscaping, and more or sponsor hygiene products such as soaps, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, etc. EVERY donation is helpful!

SUCCEED. DON’T GIVE UP. WORK HARD. BE DETERMINED. ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING. DREAM BIG. Let’s be encouraged – Safe Harbor has been focused on encouraging our participants that they can achieve their goals of a united family, health, sobriety, living drug-free, job security, independent living and more. We believe that in order for a circumstantial change to take place a mental, physical, and spiritual change must be made first. Recently we have posted inspirational quotes and posters throughout the mission to remind the men they are important and they CAN live the life they want. We all must set goals, work hard, and stay focused.
Congrats Graduates! "Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try" ~ John F Kennedy
