Took some pizza and some ice cream sandwiches and a Christmas surprise ( A gaming station.. shhh.. That was Ryan’s idea and a brilliant one at that! ) up to the guys at the Teen Challenge Center today with Paul MacNeil, Ryan MacNeil and Tim Sleigh. Although we didn’t have much time to spend with the guys I think it was one of my favourite trips out of the past ten years up. Everyone was full, smiling and we had the chance to hear one of the guys share is story and how God has been helping him overcome addictions in his life.. I love the honesty of these guys.. No pride. Just brutal truth. And then moving on together supporting each other. I love Teen Challenge and the hearts of these people including the staff who serve.
On June 15, 2019 we hosted our first annual garage sale family fun day at our office in Halifax. We had a bouncy castle and face painting for the kids and great food and stellar deals for everyone. We also had a draw for a 60″ TV! It was a really successful, fun day. All the money raised will be going to the Arms of Jesus School in Guatemala and our upcoming team trip down there. All the leftover BBQ goodies were donated to Souls Harbour Rescue Mission for their guests to enjoy.
Even the littlest members of the Eastport Family like to give back! This little lady is Tenley, Jonathan's Executive Assistant Chasity's daughter. Today is Tenley's 5th birthday! She has a HUGE heart for animals so for her birthday, rather than presents, she wanted donations to help sick animals! Today she delivered her $215 to Vet, Dr. Beverley Greenlaw to help animals when their families may not have the funds to do so! Way to go Tenley!
"We are so incredibly grateful for the people in our lives here at TC!!!! We are thankful that our friend, Jonathan Lewis has been bringing the "3S's" (Steak, Sports and Servants Hearts) to us for several years. We appreciate the friends that he has brought and partnered with to make it one of the most anticipated evenings of our students programs! The fellowship,encouragement and time that you share is an amazing gift. The steaks are an added bonus; thank you from the bottom of our hearts (and stomachs)!"
Had a great time in Memramcook hanging with the gang at the center and playing some Friday night football. The 9 yr dynasty of undefeated road trips came to and end with a score of 28-21 in favour of the guys at the TC center but spirits were lifted as always on both sides of the field!! Awesome men and Awesome time!!
“Do your giving while you are living.” You can’t take it with you. Everyone of us has time, talent and money. Some of us have more of each of these resources available than others. I know this!... You can’t take any of these with you. Share them with the world. GIVE.
How ya livin?
Another successful Turkey Drive with all our community supporters, staff and volunteers. A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who makes this possible every year! Tonight was a double blessing as we did two locations at once which was a first and it all went off without a hitch. God Bless and Merry Christmas from Eastport Financial to all of you who make this annual drive a reality!
