Arise

An encouragement ministry

                But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Isaiah 40:31

                         

 

ABOUT
Arise (Uplifting on Eagle’s Wings) Encouragement Ministry expresses the caring heart of God to a community that is hurting, providing the basis for true hope and encouragement.  Our desire is to connect more people with the heart of God through these messages.   
 
If you are in need of support and encouragement, please fill out our Connect With Us form and we will be honored to send uplifting messages via email or text weekly.  It is our privilege to walk with you in your life journey. 

Myth: Human trafficking involves moving, traveling or transporting a person across state or national borders.

 

Reality:  The crime of human trafficking does not require any movement whatsoever. Survivors can be recruited and trafficked in their own home towns, even their own homes.
