On Gateway to Cleveland this week, my guest is Christine Shippy, principal for the non-profit Covenant With Christ, who told listeners about the organization’s ministries serving the community including its: indigent healthcare clinic; community service center; covenant resale shop; Bible college; and covenant food bank. She explained all the health services the indigent health care offers and that they will be open two more days per week in the very near future. Shippy spoke for the need of volunteers as the ministries are serving more people in need especially in the clinic, the shop (where they give those in need everything from furniture to clothes and even personal hygiene items), and the food bank.

He explained his organization is open to the public for membership, and has its own law enforcement, Cattle Rangers, paid by the TSCRA, who work under and are associated with, the Texas Rangers and DPS as well as law enforcement in the other states the Association covers. As the name implies, the 30 Cattle Rangers deal primarily in cattle rustling, as well as horse theft, and stolen ranch and farm equipment which accounts for almost $10-million in losses. Thorpe explained to listeners the TSCRA also is a champion for all land owners when it comes to land and water rights on a state and national level, and went into details of some of the concerns he expects to be brought up in this year’s Federal and Texas legislatures involving these matters.
