In a long time, nothing has brought the world together and raised its fears as much as this deadly outbreak. If certain things are not done on time, this could be the biggest threat the world is going to face. Already, pundits are projecting that COVID-19 could lead to a recession and could affect as many as 600 million people globally. It’s evident to everyone that there is danger. This is not a pre doomsday fear-call. It is the reality on the ground as all eyes can see. But the big question is, seeing the visible threat and global panic, is there hope? The answer is yes. There is hope in the Word of God. God’s Word was written to bring us hope in a seemingly hopeless time. As Christians, we are not that surprised at the news. Thousands of years ago, our Master and Savior told us that the world would have different kinds of outbreaks. He prepared our minds, instructing us that no matter how dreadful each of the outbreaks is, it is only but a small part of the major crisis expected in the world. He counseled us to remember that these outbreaks, economic crisis, wars, and threats of wars, are the beginning of the suffering the world would experience. Matt. 24:6-8 give us a clear indication of these sorrows: 6 “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet”. 7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places”. 8 “All these are the beginning of sorrows”. So, we are not to be surprised, neither should we panic. Jesus told us these things so that we will continue to have peace in Him, even when the world is troubled. John 16:33says “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world”. We can rest assured that as we put our total trust in God and lean not to our own understanding in the mist of this pandemic, God’s unchanging hand will protect our family and every area of our lives. Let’s keep hope alive.

Are you ready to stop the devil in your life and family today? Are you ready to say enough is enough to all forms of Satan’s instigated threats against your marriage, children, finances, health, and divine purpose? Are you challenged in speaking God’s promise in your life? Powerful Prayers that will Shift the Atmosphere is a must-read and Biblical meditation tool. Our Executive Director J. Anthony Dickerson released his first book in May and has written several prayers through the power of the Holy Spirit, that will terminate the assignment of the enemy and encourage the heart of the believer. Those who will read and meditate on these prayers will experience an encounter with God that will cause an atmospheric shift in every area of their life. In May his book made the Best Seller’s list in Prayer on Amazon. On June 29, our executive director hosted a free book signing for all the guests at the Christian Shelter. All the guests were given a free autographed copy of his book. Many of the guests use his book as a personal devotional tool while here at the shelter. Starting in August you can purchase an autographed copy of the book by contacting the Christian Shelter at 410-749-5673. All the proceeds will go towards the support of the Christian Shelter. As we work our way through the summer months at the Christian Shelter, funds continue to be very tight as volunteers and donations have dropped off significantly so any help you can offer by purchasing a book is greatly appreciated!
Uniforms bring staff to the same platform, instilling a feeling of equality amongst those wearing the uniform. Uniforms also give the staff person a sense of mutual growth, which will allow them to care for their fellow colleagues and guests with pride. Uniforms are very important, and foster traits which are very necessary for a person as an individual and an organization as a whole to thrive and prosper.
One of our goals at the Christian Shelter is to become a 5-Star shelter starting with our staff. Special Thanks to the Amerigroup that sponsored our staff uniforms and Xpressive Threads for assisting us with our logo on our uniforms. This is certainly the Spirt of Excellence.
We have also instituted an ID policy and have issued IDs to all staff members as a security measure. All staff are required to wear their uniforms and ID when working.
