Andrea's Mission celebrates first graduation; "8 children have their mother back." -- Jimmy Flener

Wendy Browning, Angel Gilland, Director Leslie Cardwell, and Kathleen Hall

Andrea’s Mission, a residential treatment program in Butler County for women battling drug addiction, held its first graduation on Sunday evening, January 29, at Cool Springs General Baptist Church.  A large crowd gathered in support of the first three graduates, Angel Gilland, Kathleen Hall and Wendy Browning as they have completed the six-month program.

Leslie Cardwell, director of Andrea’s Mission, welcomed everyone and explained the Christ-centered Recovery Program.  Andrea’s Mission can accommodate eight residents and offers a variety of classes including; parenting, AA, Bible Study, and devotionals to mention a few.  The ladies also attend Cool Spring Church and participate in the Celebrate Recovery Classes.

“I am so proud of these ladies; they have completed their classes and are ready to return to their families,” said Cardwell.

Each lady was presented a Certificate of Completion by Jimmy Flener, president of People Who Care Ministries, and Cardwell.

Through tears, Gilland, Hall, and Browning thanked Andrea’s Mission, the many volunteers at the program, People Who Care, and Cool Spring Church for all their support. 

“Eight children have their mother back,” said Flener, as he congratulated the graduates.  According to Flener, a young child touched his heart in 2004, when he learned her father was in jail and her mother was battling a drug problem.  

“After much prayer, God spoke to me and told me I needed to do something,” said Flener.  He organized People Who Care Ministries, thus leading to the opening of Andrea’s Mission.

Debra Duncan, volunteer Christian counselor at Andrea’s Mission, closed the ceremony in prayer.

Cool Springs Church presented the ladies with gifts, provided music, and served refreshments.

Andrea's Mission is located at 2556 Barren River Road, Morgantown, Kentucky. For more information call 270 662-0077.

A BTN video by Jeremy Hack of Andrea's Mission graduation ceremony will be posted soon.
