Here are a few comments from our wonderful recipients.
"This has got to be one of the most amazing programs that I have been involved in. This organization does not stop with the vehicle. :) Now I get to be involved in discipleship, car care classes, and becoming part of a whole other community. Since I have received my vehicle it has truly made me a better mom. I am able to take my children & friends to church, enrolled my daughter in t-ball, all my sons handicap equipment fits in van, my 14 year old twins love the space in the car and it has allowed me to build healthy relationships & share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you so much to everybody involved in this process. This is what we mean that all things are possible through Jesus Christ. Continuing to pray that God will open doors like we never thought imaginable." ~Holly
I honestly cannot begin to tell you the magnitude of the impact Chariots4Hope has had in my/our heart in just the short couple months ya'll were brought into our lives. You see, if you would have asked me 5 months ago if my marriage would survive this "season" of life, I would have probably answered no. Of course the van has been MAJOR blessing! However, the ministry, mentorship, community, and love ya'll have showed James (and myself!!) has been one of the best things that's happened to him (in turn, me was well!). I thank God He laid this work/ministry on your heart, and ya'll were obedient! I've had many people praying for LOTS of years to provide someone to lead/guide James in a Godly example. Please just take this away: When ya'll feel tired or discouraged, because I know the ministry can be hard/stressful, please, please never give up until the good Lord calls you elsewhere!! You ALL are doing way more than providing people with a means of transportation!) Through your obedience, God is changing lives, fixing marriages perhaps, saving lost souls at the very least! I may never get to tell ya’ll all of this alone, but thank you, sincerely from the bottom of my heart! ~ Renee Kelly
“Chariots4Hope did exactly that, give me Hope. Receiving this car was like a jumpstart in my life, it gave me an opportunity to actually be independent and focus on things like going to school, getting a job, and being able to be involved with group and church. It was also a great reminder of Gods love and how everyone at Chariots4Hope are true reflections of Christ by just being obedient and blessing me and many others. Finding out that I was not only getting this awesome car that I love so much and appreciate, but the fact that there were no strings attached and it was mine makes me cry just thinking about it. The biggest thing about receiving the car was it showed me I deserve good things and I didn't always believe that. So thank you again, again, and again!” - Candace
"The gift of receiving this car from Chariots4Hope has definitely helped myself and more importantly helped my family. The past few years have been challenging to say the least. We have not had our own way of transportation and have had to rely on friends and family to even go to the grocery store. I’ve been relying on public transportation to get to and from work. This blessing has afforded us the chance to be once again self reliant and also helps us appreciate the responsibility of finally being able to take care of what we need and have to do. Having our own vehicle helps my wife get to her doctor’s appointments, attend church on a regular basis and visit friends and family more often. After what we have experienced the last couple of years we truly feel blessed to have a little more independence once again. All Glory to God."
“I would like to start off with how grateful I truly am to be blessed with the 2001 Dodge Caravan from Chariots4Hope! I have been able to attend parent teacher conferences and other activities with my children. I also have been able to spend more time with my family, since my children and I are now able to drive and come visit them. Everyday while I take my 3 boys, Elijah, Logan, and Jaycob to daycare we pray and thank God for providing for our family!! I want to sincerely thank all the donors, volunteers, and staff at Chariots4Hope, Open Door Mission and Lydia House for helping me change my life around! I know all things are possible thru Christ and I am proud to walk by faith! I can't say THANK YOU enough! God Bless!!!” - Angela
"I just want to take a few moments to say how grateful and thankful I am for the vehicle I received from Chariots4Hope. This vehicle has been such a blessing. Not only to myself but to others as well. I love it and my daughters do too. There was a time when I hated everything in my life and so I got rid of it all. Including my car. Since that time I have repaired my relationships. And, through God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit I have repaired the relationship with myself. I couldn't be more thankful for the relationships I have picked up along the way. The people that have been positioned into my life are the true blessings. People like Mimi, Jason and his wife, Eric, and too many to count in this email. I love the fact that Eric donated it before leaving to go serve his country. My car is more than just a nice vehicle, more than just a way to gey back and forth from work, more than just transportation. It is a renewal of hope. A key that unlocks so many doors for me. A way for me to be with my girls and do so many things with them. An opprtunity for me to share with others who are in need. Jason and Chariots4Hope have given me a wonderful gift. A gift that they made sure was in well working order. A gift that they worked so hard to make sure everything from the paperwork to the brakes was in order. They have continued to offer a gift of friendship, and as they are out doing the Lord's work, they give me a gift of inspiration. Thank You!" - Dillon
