Ten-Four Ministries Distribution Center

I recently came back from taking our church's youth group to the Anchored In Truth Reality Check Conference in Chattanooga, TN. It was an incredible conference with solid biblical teaching that frankly we could not find at any youth conference near our church. Thus we travelled the 800 miles and one of the benefits was getting to stop at the Ten-Four Ministries Distribution Center.

Now a couple of questions may come to your mind. Why does the ministry need a Distribution Center? And what does that cost?

We didn't know that we needed a Distribution Center until in God's providence, He provided one through a generous donor who gave us the location with free rent. At the time, we were housing ballstic vests that were donated to us through the Armor of God Project in a storage unit and that was plenty of room. Well, little did we know that in just a few months we would have hundreds of vests and that is why we were provided the Warehouse.

On the way home from the youth trip, I got the chance to see the Center for the first time and I was blown away by what I saw. Hundreds of mostly new vests ready to be sent out to officers that need them - not only free of charge but along with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Lt. Reck and Ray Mahan, Co-Founders of the Armor of God Project hold up a female vest that was donated from the officer's daughter after the death of the officer.

My son having some fun and wearing one of the donated vests, in excellent condition.

Our youth group looks on as Ray discusses the importance of The Great Commission with them.
