Peace Restored has gone through A LOT of transitions in 2021 so we wanted to take a moment to reflect on what this past year has been like for Peace Restored. It has been incredible and the Lord has opened doors we never expected. We hope you’ll celebrate these victories with us! We are celebrating today but we believe Peace Restored has much more work to do.

Peace Restored has grown so much in 2021, it is overwhelming. When we started 2021, we did not expect all of what happened this past year to happen. We are so thankful to everyone who contributed to making these things happen. Peace Restored wouldn’t be here without the Lord and the support of people like YOU!
