NewLife Behavior Ministries and Christians Against Substance Abuse (CASA) must rise to the challenges of today's world and make unique contributions. We call on all our partners around the world to do the same. In a time when governments, systems and tax dollars fail, God's people are called upon to display that power that comes only from above.

It is at times like this that I am especially glad not to be a government employee. Also, I am glad not to be affiliated with a program that depends upon tax dollars for its existence. In part of the above report, a man representing Serenity Foundation of Texas (operating treatment facilities in Abilene and Wichita Falls) said: "If they cut us, we're going to cut them!" If your existence depends upon such subsidies, such is life. Again, I thank God that we are strictly supported by free-will offerings of God-fearing people.

I am discovering a greater "friendliness" from city, county, state and federal authorities and agencies. Why? Frankly speaking, it is because they need us. My prayer is that - if and when this times passes - they will not forget those of us who stepped up to the plate even when there were no dollars to be counted!

For faith-based programs, this is OUR time. All we have ever wanted to do was serve. Be bold and seize the moment.
