This past December 8, more than 130 people joined us for an evening of delicious food (fajitas cooked onsite by Uncle Julio's Restaurant), special entertainment by John Webster and Texas Praise, a silent auction with thirty tremendous items (all won and awarded), testimonials from pastors, fun door prizes, and an exciting presentation on Son Shine Ministries' outreach and vision. This event helped raise funds for the ministry and was a celebration of our 40th year as a ministry. A wonderful blessing was that all four ministry founders—Ted & Barbara Platt and Lew & Sandy Shaffer—were in attendance. The audience included many friends from Azle, Fort Worth, and Dallas, but also from as far away as Ohio and South Korea. Thanks to all who supported this special evening!

The Bible provides excellent support to parents and is keenly relevant today. In this helpful article, ministry director David Shaffer shares insights on the biblical mandate to parents found in Deuteronomy 6.
