Happy New Year!

2012 will be a year we in Louisiana remember as a year of transition from the former child welfare system to Louisiana’s new Coordinated System of Care. For Methodist Children’s Home of Southwest Louisiana in Sulphur and for Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home in Ruston, 2012 will be remembered as a year in which we made remarkable changes, expanded our staff and enhanced our ability to provide the most intensive levels of residential care in Louisiana. Methodist Home for Children of Greater New Orleans will remember 2012 as a year of limbo and not knowing where we would be located in 2013. Across Louisiana, we were supported by your prayers and donations during 2012 and we are grateful!

The staff members of Louisiana United Methodist Children and Family services are a diverse family of like-minded, like-hearted people who use the resources we have to accomplish a transcendent mission. We are the hands and the feet of the church, ministering to broken-hearted people held captive by pain – blinded and bruised. Our ministry, our presence in the world, is very clear evidence of God at work in the world today.

On this, the first day of 2013, I want to begin the year by saying, “Thank you!” On behalf of Louisiana United Methodist Children and Family Services, I extend our gratitude for your constant support, your faith in our dedication to our mission, and your prayers for our board of directors, for our staff and for our children and their families. Thank you for loving the Home and for encouraging our staff as they pursue our mission to guide children and families home to experience God’s love by following the teachings of Christ!
