"Fresh Start didn't just give me a "fresh start". They gave me a new beginning. Charles and Betty Williams, as you know them. But, I know them as Momma and Popa. They loved me when I thought I was loveless. They showed me how to forgive myself and to love."
"I am thankful that God uses Fresh Start Ministries to help others. Not only did they dedicate their time to do a class while I was incarcerated, but they also haven't left my side sine my release. They are always checking on me. They helped me to pray in front of others. And they continue to show me their agape love for Christ and His children. They are family to me! Love you guys!"
"I met Charles and Betty Williams in the beginning of my sentence, when I didn't really believe God had a purpose for me. They gave me hope and encouragement to be able to thrive inside and have a purpose that believed God had for me!"
"Fresh Start Ministries has had an impact on my life through the Heavens, energizing, renewing and refocusing and igniting quality for more growth through this journey I now travel. Thanks be to GOD!"
"Fresh Start Ministry started to visit us at Hernando Correctional in 2012. I signed up to attend their first Bible Study. Throughout my time after they have been considered a steady and faithful minstry. Giving only truth, love and with faith that they are encouraging our souls. Not just faith but BULLDOG faith. I'm grateful to have had the entire team worshipping together, singing and praising our God. They are a light and salt on the Earth. I've been encouraged many times especially when I was released. They were there for me."
"Fresh Start came into my life at a point where I needed hope. I needed something to hold onto. The impact that they had on my life was tremendous. They pushed me beyond my boundaries because the saw more in me than what I saw in myself, at the time. They helped me regain my faith and strength in God and taught me how to walk out those things in which I believe. I am forever grateful and my life has been going to higher levels ever since."
"These classes helped me pray out loud, overcome fear, and miracles that we prayed for were coming true."
"They taught me that there's always room to grow, to change, and to better myself."
