Touch me and see; for a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. While in their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate in their presence. Hebrews 13:20-21

Easter Blessings to you and our family!
Signs of spring are finally here with warm weather, beautiful flowers, decorative eggs, and tree blossoms. The signs of new life and Hope are all around us! During these times of renewal and inspiration, it is easy to sing praises and rejoice to God as we see Him in the beauty of spring!
It is during difficult times, however, when praises are hard to conjure, songs are far from our lips, and our thoughts are often bogged down with troubles. It is during these difficult times of people’s lives that Haven Ministries often enters. Through the practical means of providing food, shelter and resources, Haven Ministries ushers in Hope to the hopeless.
It is a Hope that God is always with us – loving us and providing for us. It is the message through actions that He will never leave us nor forsake us! God is our ultimate source of hope – no matter our circumstances! Even during dark times we can sing praises and rejoice because of this Hope – the Hope to come of renewal and new life! Oh sing to the Lord a new song!
Oh sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.
Psalm 96:1-3 NKJ
May your Easter be full of HOPE and the promise of new life!
