re·cov·er·y rəˈkəv(ə)rē (noun): to be made well.
The mission of White Fields Foundation is recovery; to be made well through relationships.
The name White Fields Foundation comes from the Bible. John 4:35 states, “Even though the harvest was four months away, Jesus said, ‘Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.”
The harvest refers to those who are ripe and ready to be made well. We believe that the only way to be truly well is through the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is the foundation of our work.
As the scripture implies, the time is now. Look around. People are desperate to be made well. If we are honest, we are all in some stage of recovery. Some of us look great on the outside, but those who know us best recognize a need for some type of emotional or substance recovery. For some of us, the need for recovery is becoming more obvious to family members, coworkers and those in our community. Others have obvious addictions and need a place of refuge to recover. The most crucial element of all recovery, whether there is substance abuse or failing relationships, is healing from past and current wounds.
The most difficult times of our lives are usually seen later as some of the most important times, for it is during these times that we seek answers. A second scripture further defines the work of WFF. Jesus said in John 12:24, ‘Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.’ When we recognize that we need to die (give up control of our life), we can be made well and begin to be fruitful.
At WFF, we strive to connect people who are ripe into community to have their needs met and be given courage through Jesus Christ.
