Romans 13:17 says "Give honor to whom honor is owed." Lighthouse for Life owes an OUTSTANDING amount of honor to Mr. Bob Healy. He is a humble servant
who is actually highly responsible for so much of the progress the state of South Carolina has made in this fight.
Bob Healy introduced our Executive Director, Jen Thompson, to Andrea Wind in December 2014. At that time, Jen was teaching school and Lighthouse for
Life was less than 6 months old.
Then, on February 10, 2015, Bob single-handedly brought together a Human Trafficking Awareness Event at his home church, Mt. Horeb United Methodist
Church in Lexington. This event featured Attorney General Alan Wilson and Human Trafficking Survivor & Advocate Tajuan McCarty. Around 200
people were in attendance and many of them have since gone on to focus on fighting human trafficking in various ways all over the state.
Bob is an incredible ambassador for Lighthouse for Life and has been the greatest single influence in cultivating our relationship with his home church,
Mt. Horeb U.M.C. Now, over three years later Bob is still fighting human trafficking on a daily basis. He has a passion unlike most and is highly
engaged in bringing light to the true root of human trafficking by calling attention to the issue of demand.
Mt. Horeb U.M.C. became the second church to donate to the ministry on a recurring basis and is now our largest financial partner. The church supports
Lighthouse for Life in so many ways beyond finances. Pastor Jeff Kersey and his team have bravely spoken truth about human trafficking from the
front on numerous occasions. Lighthouse for Life has also been blessed to partner with the youth and women's ministry to bring awareness. We have
been able to host community training on campus at no cost. Mt. Horeb's Director of Business Operations, Nate Gibson, has greatly assisted in organizational
development as well.
The examples of our partnership could continually be listed. We are excited to see what the Lord has in store for the future. However, this month we
want to intentionally give honor to the man who planted so many seeds all across the state bringing so many together. Only time will tell what
we believe to be a great future harvest from the results of your labors, Bob. We love you and thank you so much.
