It has been awhile...

Hello friends.  It has been awhile since our last newsletter.  Kristi has been dealing with some health issues which has put Badge of Hope sort of in a holding pattern.

However, we are happy to report that things are finally looking up, so we are ready to get back in the saddle. 

We have some very exciting events coming up over the next several weeks and months.

First, we will be traveling once again to South Dakota for the Police Chief's Conference there.  This is the second time we've been in the Black Hills, but are truly looking forward to not only the beauty of God's creation, but are excited to be back and meet some new faces!

Badge of Hope has a fully packed month of May.  The first week will consist of our 2nd Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation event at the Old Courthouse in Union.  Last year we had approximately 40 attendees...we are hoping to double that this year.

That first weekend, we will also be attending the Missouri LE Memorial Service in Jefferson City.  This year, since none of our board members can make it, we are honored to take Rick's Chief and his bride, and possibly one of our local Chaplains and his wife.  We always enjoy Aries Pizza while there! 

Around Mother's Day, we will be in Washington DC for National Police week activities.  This is always the highlight of our year as we are given numerous opportunities to serve the fallen's family members, co-workers, and friends.  What a blessing God has given to us through this ministry!

Kristi will also be speaking again at the 2nd Annual RISE Conference on May 12th, to be held at McLean Bible Chapel. 

In June, we will travel for the first time ever, to Fresno, CA for a LE/Chaplain Conference.  We are pretty excited as this has been on our radar for years, and now is the time!

Without covering the rest of the year, we just wanted to give you a glimpse of some activities Badge of Hope will be a part of.

Please continue to pray for us, for Kristi and her health, for more opportunities, and for God to use us where we are most needed.  Also be in prayer for our law enforcement as they are under continued attack.

In His Service,
Rick & Kristi Neace & the Badge of Hope Board
