VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR APOSTOLIC CHRISTIAN HARVESTCALL FOR ITS IMPRESSIVE MINISTRY IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND TO EXTEND THE ORGANIZATION BEST WISHES FOR GOD'S RICHEST BLESSINGS AS ITS FINE STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS CONTINUE TO SERVE THE LORD.
Whereas, it is entirely appropriate to honor those organizations and individuals who give tirelessly of themselves to nourish the souls of men and assist the needy. Apostolic Christian HarvestCall stands among their number as an outstanding Gospel and humanitarian aid ministry, one much admired by all who know its work and who have benefited from it throughout the organization's more than fifty years of service; and
Whereas, operating under the authority of the Apostolic Christian Church of America, Apostolic Christian HarvestCall is a new organization, but it has a long history. It started over fifty years ago with two separate Apostolic Christian outreach arms that merged in late 2015 to form HarvestCall. The merged organization's mission is to equip and mobilize brethren to proclaim the Gospel, disciple and nurture believers, and demonstrate the love of Christ with deeds of compassion; and
Whereas, in carrying out its mission, Apostolic Christian HarvestCall has worked in the Palmetto State during 2017 and 2018. Focusing most of its 2017 work in the Columbia area, HarvestCall spent approximately fifty-nine thousand dollars on one new three-bedroom home and two home repairs. Also in 2017, the group's volunteers worked for three months in Chester, and they have continued their labors there for the first three months of 2018. For 2018, all of HarvestCall's new homes are one- and two-bedroom dwellings, with an overall 2018 budget of five hundred thousand dollars, including operating expenses for vehicles, housing, and food for volunteers; and
Whereas, so far during the past two work seasons, HarvestCall has built eight new homes and repaired twenty-five. The organization is projecting ten to thirteen more repairs before the end of March, ranging from new roofs, ramps, decks, siding, and windows to flooring, doors, HVAC needs, and more; and
Whereas, led in South Carolina by Barry Kloter, 2018 ministry coordinator, Apostolic Christian HarvestCall continues to accomplish its purpose of enabling the brethren to "proclaim Christ and serve others beyond the capacity of the local church." Grateful for HarvestCall's spiritual and material blessing on the people of South Carolina, the Senate takes great pleasure in extending best wishes as the group's staff and volunteers continue to run the race the Lord has set before them. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, recognize and honor Apostolic Christian HarvestCall for its impressive ministry in South Carolina and extend the organization best wishes for God's richest blessings as its fine staff and volunteers continue to serve the Lord.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Barry Kloter on behalf of the staff and volunteers of Apostolic Christian HarvestCall.
