Samaritan House Needs

Samaritan House Needs … The Samaritan House an emergency homeless shelter for families and women in the Jefferson City, TN area. This Christian Ministry could use some donations of some items. It has been over four years since I first shared about the opening of the New Samaritan House.  I had the pleasure of going to the old location with Justin Breeden, when he did some Bible Studies at the old location. This new location is much bigger and much better. God truly has blessed this ministry and it continues to grow.

This Christian Ministry has recently came on my heart recently due to some certain circumstances. I got to have dinner there on July 11, 2017 and join in on their Bible Study they have. Each Tuesday night, they have a dinner and a Bible Study where guest are welcome.
