What Our Lord and Belle of the Harvest Says

Joseph Craddock

Lord of the Harvest

Minister Joseph Craddock faced a terrible challenge with being scammed out of his money. With no one else to turn to, here is how CEFN’s director, Sherry Hill, helped Mr. Craddock and how he felt about his latest trial:

“…Ms. Sherry, you know all along she was counseling me and working with me and telling me that we’re gonna get through this and you’re gonna get it back and she was very encouraging you know and that at the end of everything you know quite naturally… being a spiritual person, I was grateful to God and to her… you know that they were… faithful to the… help that they were giving me…” – Joseph Craddock

Haddy Williams

Belle of the Ball

Ms. Haddy Williams confronted many terrible challenges throughout her life. But her belief in God allows her to keep smiling and move forward no matter what. Here is what she says of CEFN’s director Sherry Hill:

“Oh yes, she’s (Sherry Hill) so sweet… if I need help… she would see what she can do for me. Anytime I need… to call her, I’ll call the people that work with her and they will be there for me. I know that she is… very concerned… about people. She is very sweet.” – Haddy Williams
