Three years ago Loves Lighthouse Prayer Ministries, Inc., began in Decatur, Georgia on September 13, 2014. We honor God and our Lords Jesus Christ for bringing our vision of prosperity physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually into manifestation. We believe in what the prophet Habakkuk spoke in chapter 2. 1-3, “I will stand on my guard, and set myself on the tower, and watch to see what He will say against me, and what I shall return on my rebuke. Jehovah answered and said. Write the vision, and engrave it on the tablets, that he reads it may run. For the vision is for the appointed time, but it does not lie. Though it delays, wait for it, because it will surely come: it will not tarry.” We have over came many challenges that were set in our paths, but it has truly been an amazing journey. We have the capacity to serve the aging and youth population at first in three states and now in all fifty states. Initially, it was just one Director which now we have Board four members, Vanita Overby, James Corey, Timia Overby and Danielle Overby.
We relocated from Georgia and now operate out of Newport News, VA. and at first even began as a Concession here which is still operating as Business Loves Oils located at Fort Eustis/ Langley Air Force Base which finances some of the charitable events. We applaud our military service members and family members for allowing us to have the highest grade of Essential Oils available to them. Our organization currently in this past year have served hundreds of pounds of food to our Senior community located in Hampton and mentored youth violence prevention to over a hundred youth in Newport News, VA, and Hampton, VA. We currently are still mentoring and providing a scholarship to our youth for college who achieve academically and become leaders. In fact, our youth will be touring Hampton University and attend college football game this month and that would not be possible without our donors like you.
Our donors are companies and individuals who have made us thrive, so far. Our donors, Food Lion who have not just donated, but took the time out to actually interact with our elderly clients. The Hampton Health District has also been very beneficial to educating our elderly on the importance of Hypertension Screening. Wal- Mart has donated educational supplies for our you, so they can have internet access and entertainment while participating in our youth violence prevention program. Target Security Program supports our Youth violence program by providing positive reinforcement through gift cards for youth who attend our program. Both Newport News and Hampton City Parks and Recreation have provided safe places to hold our teen events and we are truly grateful. Fresh Market and Papa Johns also have donated nutritional snacks for these events and for that we are grateful and hope to continue in our relationships in reducing crime in our communities.
Coming from nothing as my son and I stood in DeKalb County on the side of the road was a result of our faithfulness which symbolic we have story of Hannah and Penninah of the rich and the poor with God showing favor to Hannah.
