This Relationship Began As We Embarked On a Joint Collaboration to Revitalize The Pryor Sertoma Building With The Pryor Sertoma Club.
What We hadn't Expected Was That Our Men Would Find Wonderful Mentorship and That Reincarnation Cottages Members Would Make Many Friendships That Were Unexpected But Very Needed.
From These Friendships, The Northeast Oklahoma Veterans Tour and Flowers By Teddie Rae Would Sponsor a Fundraiser That Would Support The Children of The Men of Reincarnation Cottages. This Was Such a Selfless Act and I can't Describe the Joy That This Brought to so Many.
Our Friends Took The RCottages Men Shopping for Their Children. I have Heard Stories of Many Laughs and Tears of Joy. This Was One Fathers First Christmas That He was Able to Provide Christmas Presents For His Children.
I also Heard That Shopping With These Fathers Was The Most Important Act That One of Our New Found Friends Had Ever Done. Let That Sink in To Your Soul a Little. Such a Simple Act.
Today I Was Honored to Witness Children Playing, Laughing, and Hanging Out With Their Sober Fathers. I Watched Mothers Hold Their Adult Sons, And I Watched The Fathers of These Younger Fathers Tear Up as They Were Enjoying Having Their Son Back. For Some This Was the First Time They Had Been With Each Other In a Very Long Time.
I Am Reminded Why What We Do Isn't Only For The Benefit of The Man That is In Our Program, But For The Children, Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, and Sisters.
I Witnessed God Grace and The Miracles He Can Work Today!
I Witnessed a Pryor Creek Christmas Miracle....
Thank You Northeast Oklahoman Veterans Tour, Pryor Sertoma, Teddie Rae, Stephens-Key Funeral Home, Orschelns Pryor, and Miss Pryor 2020 For All You Have Done!
