Lincoln Resident Spotlight

Dianara’s Story

Dianara and her daughter have been Lincoln residents for 3 years. Each year, our staff has watched Dianara grow spiritually, physically, emotionally, and financially. She has participated in Lincoln’s Matched Savings Program to save for a down payment, and through our partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Dianara has reached her goal of owning her own home – which is in the process of being built! It is an honor to walk alongside Dianara and not only see her dreams come true, but also see God’s dreams for her come true.

Dianara says, “I heard about Lincoln Village Ministry through a friend at church. I wanted to move to Lincoln so I could learn how to be independent and not always rely on other people. I wanted a safe place where my daughter and I could develop and grow as a family.

Before moving to Lincoln, I had major trust issues. I felt like I was stuck and wasn’t growing into an independent adult. Lincoln was a safe place where my daughter and I could take time to heal and to grow. It’s impossible to grow if you don’t feel safe. I began to understand that God has a plan for us, and I didn’t have to stress about things. I have healed a lot.

My Lincoln neighbors became my family. I finally have a sense of belonging. We look after each other, talk with one another, and have dinner together. I realized there was more to life than just working and getting by. I wasn’t alone in my walk anymore. Lincoln is truly a restart for my life.”

Lincoln Village Ministry | Huntsville AL

Just a few miles from the most expensive houses in the inner city of Huntsville were men, women, and children surviving without the basic necessities. No running water or electricity. Plumbing didn’t work and floors were rotted from leaking pipes. Children had broken toys and went to bed hungry. A man with a heart for this inner city neighborhood stepped into the home of a little girl and her mother. That visit opened the man’s eyes and eventually a community’s eyes to the great need in their midst: the  need for Christ.

Lincoln Village Ministries is the product of one man’s call to action. The call has spread all over the city of Huntsville to pour out the hope and love of Jesus Christ into the Lincoln community.

Lincoln Academy

Our students had a variety of field trip experiences during the last few weeks of the year!

Our 4th and 5th grade had a wonderful learning experience at Burritt on the Mountain. Our 5th grade class went to see the classic “A Christmas Carol”. The 6th graders entertained the residents at Regency Retirement Village.

Our 7th and 8th graders interacted with and entertained the veterans at Tut Fann Veterans Home.

We recognized and celebrated Alabama’s Bicentennial birthday on Friday, December 13th. 

We were blessed to have America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses come to Lincoln and provide free eye screenings for 62 of our students.
