*We are studying BattleField of the Mind-Joyce Meyer For our Winter Session.
Our mission at “On Wings like a Dove,” is to provide spiritual and emotional support to the families of prodigals & prisoners who have chosen to wander from the Father’s purpose and plan for their lives.
Through the power of God’s Word and Intercessory Prayer our intention is to empower families to experience the same unconditional love and forgiveness the Father shows the prodigal in bringing reconciliation and restoration to the family.
We encourage families to stand in the gap through prayer for their prodigal, with the hope that they will one day come back home to the Heavenly Father's open arms.
We also provide support to the prodigal and re-entry guidance to the ex-offender
The Prodigal's father called for a party to end all parties upon his son's return. "Bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' And they began to be merry." (Luke 15:23-24)
Because of your faithful giving, On Wings Like A Dove, Inc. has been able to accomplish God’s directive for 2012. Our key passage for the year is “Jesus said to them, My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.” John 4:34
We wanted to share how your gifts to Him have been used over the course of 2012.
In Matthew 6:33, Jesus stressed to the disciples that their priority was to “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and the necessities of daily life would be provided.” We are trusting Him for His provision as we finish the work He has planned for us.
Following is a statement from the Board of On Wings Like a Dove:
“We wanted to provide a brief overview of our financial need in terms of our annual budget and current financial position. September has been our historical fund-raising month with the holding of a celebration banquet. With those funds and a core group that have given monthly, we set our annual budget in January for the coming year. At the end of August, our gifts were approximately $3,700 below our expected gift level and we have spent just over 14% of our current spend on a year to date basis. Our current spending level has been affected by the additional programs taken on this year. Therefore our financial situation has become grave as the current fund balance is just over two month’s fixed spending requirements.”
You have been faithful donors over the years. We pray you will continue to join us in accomplishing God’s will and purpose as we reach out to hurting families and their prodigals in the coming year.
I pray God’s blessings on you.

"For we are fellow workman-joint promoters, laborers together--with and for God" I Corinthians 3:9
We were privileged to attend a homecoming reception for Josh Router on August 26, 2012. It reminded me of the Father in the parable of the prodigal “while he was still a long way off, his father saw him [his younger son and was moved to pity]. He ran to the boy, clasped him in his arms and kissed him.
You could see the joy on the face of both the mother and her son. They were rejoicing that this prodigal had come home. There is new opportunity and Hope for the future.
Rejoice with Josh and his family as they step into this new adventure. They will each have challenges. Pray that they will keep their focus on the Heavenly Father each day as He leads them.
