We are thrilled to announce that on Monday night, Tracy, the loving mother of Benjamin, was able to dedicate her son with the help of NorthEast. In addition, Erika, mother of the precious baby girl Arlene, also dedicated her child in the name of Jesus!! We are so grateful to Gail (NE Pastor of Teaching & Discipleship), who performed the dedications with the loving support of our Newport community surrounding Benjamin and Arlene!

We could not be more proud of both mothers (Tracy and Erika), as they have come so far! God allowed us to meet them through a bible study that we bring to Prototypes, which is a reunification program for mothers and children that we meet with every Friday.

✤ Prototypes Mission Statement: To rebuild the lives of women, children and communities impacted by substance abuse, mental illness and domestic violence.

We are blessed to say that today, Tracy has been a part of the NorthEast community for 3 months, and Erika for 4 months! Both mothers are now carrying themselves with grace and determination as they grow with God in the center of their lives. Their children will look up to them and feel inspired as they see their mothers transforming through the Lord!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ERICA AND DAUGHTER, ARLENE, + TRACY AND SON, BENJAMIN!
