Will Howland came from a rough past of hurts and addictions. He hit rock bottom and found Dunklin Memorial Camp where he gave his life to Christ. While in Dunklin's program, God gave him a heart for foreign missions where he would spend the next two and-a-half years serving on staff with YWAM in countries such as Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, and the Dominican Republic. He now serves with multiple ministries in Valdosta, at the same time providing for his wife, Haleigh, daughter, Emma and son, River. Haleigh Howland came out of a life of addiction and abuse but came to her end where she met Jesus receiving both freedom and a relationship with Him through The South Georgia House of Hope. She completed the program in 2013 and continued on to a six month internship. While serving at House of Hope, she also a received a heart for foreign missions at the Harvest Mission School in Mozambique, Africa. She now has committed to being a permanent member of the staff. She is also a devoted wife and a Godly mother. God showed them both on their journey what family looks like with his love at the center and their passion is to see that same restoration in other families that have been torn apart by addiction. Will & Haleigh continue to faithfully serve at the House of Hope, pouring out what God has so graciously poured out onto them. Their hearts' desire is to walk along the path God has paved out for their family here in Valdosta and to keep loving the lost hand-in-hand with Jesus. One day taking what God has placed in them to the nations, starting recovery homes, and taking their Arise Coffee business with them to support communities that have invested in their lives but also helping support communities in the nations.
