Tampa Lightning Honors Dr. Mike & Chris Higgins


We at Hope Childrens Home were so excited to have our Executive Director Dr. Mike Higgins & wife Chris honored as the Tampa Bay Lightning Community Heroes for their selfless service and love for children! They were presented with a $50,000 check to use at Hope which helped renovate a portion of our school.

Mike and Chris were invited to a Lightning game where they, along with about 16 guests of their choice including about a dozen children from Hope, enjoyed a private suite stocked with dinner and treats! Another forty or more of our children were also able to attend the game. Ten minutes into the game, they had a special video presentation featuring Dr. Mike & Chris Higgins showing all their accomplishments of almost 30 years of working with children!

In the days following, The Tampa Sun Times and NHL wrote articles about the event as well. They are so deserving of this honor, and we appreciate their love and sacrificial leadership in providing a loving home for these children. Thank You Pastor Mike and Ms. Chris! We Love You!

    Good morning. I attend Valley Baptist Church in Edinburgh, Virginia. Last night on our prayer bulletin, we have you folks listed for special prayer for this week and next. We have only been members here for less than a year and I did not know anything about you folks. I have checked you out on the Internet and am impressed with the ministry there. I tried to sign up for your prayer letter but it blanked out and I could not do it. Please sign me up. My email address is..bctaylor@shentel.net. Thank you and God bless.
