"Testimonial--"He Worked for Me"

"When I received the letter informing me that my health insurance premiums were going up almost $100 a month, I contacted Ron. He researched plans for me that would meet my budget yet provide me with the coverage I need. Not only did he find me a plan with a lower deductible than I had before, but it also provides me with better medical and drug co-payments and coverage and is a better monthly premium.

Ron made sure I had new insurance in place before I had to start paying the increase on my old plan; even keeping in touch with me when I was on vacation.

He really did work for me."

Streams in the Desert

Here in Conetoe, North Carolina, our community is surrounded by a food desert on all sides. A quarter of households in our county live below the federal poverty level. Poor nutrition has caused more young deaths here than car accidents.

I've been a hospital chaplain for years, accompanying one family after another as they stand at the graveside of someone who died too young. I remember the day on the way home from the hospital that I pulled my car over and prayed. It was like I heard God saying, "Open your eyes and look around." There were fields flowing out in every direction.

But there's been a hard past in those fields. My parents and grandparents were sharecroppers. The generation before them were slaves. Those fields didn't spell freedom for me. But now a new vision began to overwrite the past. What if our community could turn this around, find our freedom in good soil, and start to believe in a future where families can survive and thrive through determination, creativity, and last year's seeds?

Conetoe Family Life Center has been running for fourteen years now. Young people in our program build social and spiritual skills as they discover what it's like to be one with the land. Yes, we learn how to grow everything that can grow in this soil. But we're also learning how to invest in the community, putting food on family tables as well as selling vegetables, fruit, and honey to local restaurants, hospitals, and school systems. Then we reinvest those proceeds in the ground.

I want the children to know, "I can do this! I can contribute to my family's and community's well-being." We've gone from being a dangerous food desert to being a community that can feed hundreds of families each week without relying on outside sources. Our financial income levels have not changed. But what we do with our shared strength means that our net income has changed. We're not dependent - we can speak and work justice. If a child knows that because of work and community, the lights aren't going out, the food will be on the table, the roof will stay over his head, that's justice. The early mortality rate is dropping steeply, and that's justice.

When our community gathers for a festival, we're celebrating our own roots. We acknowledge pain and injustice; we know there is much that still needs to change. But we also give thanks for the chance to grow God-given food, and to eat it in peace together. Here in Conetoe, gathering around a table is a life-saving action.

Dear Clients & Friends,


Spring is a favorite season for many of us. Why? Because the sweet smell of renewal fills the air. The world becomes new again.

As the warmth of the season begins to fill your heart, it's always a great idea to slow down a little and ponder these blessings more deeply and completely.

Another great idea is to take a fresh new look at your insurance coverage. Let me know if I can answer any questions about your current policies. Let's talk today!

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.
