“I support SOLM because I believe in their approach to serving those in need–talking to them, praying with them, not judging them and meeting their core needs for daily living. It is a holistic approach: physical & spiritual. I can’t think of a better organization to support. I know that my funds are meeting needs at a grassroots level for the needy of our community. I wholeheartedly support SOLM.”

Public Speaking

Never in my many years of ministry have I witnessed so excitedly what one woman could do to help so many lives as had Teresa Rountree. Her dream to keep people in their homes with utilities running has been realized over and over. So many have been saved great loss by her directing donations to pay bills while these helpless ones struggled to get their feet under them. Teresa has made all the difference in her selfless and tireless service. It is my great pleasure to know and call her friend in Christ!

— Dr. Jeri Graham Edmonds

“I have known Teresa Rountree twenty years and she is truly a woman of God who is serving exactly where God intends her to serve. Her love for hurting people is evident when she shares her own testimony and stories of others she has ministered to through “Shepherds of Love Ministries”. Truly inspiring and a wonderful ambassador of God.

— Glenda Lingo, Former President of Choctaw Aglow and member of Grace Church, Choctaw, OK


Thank you for helping me with car repairs. It is running great! I think of you often. May God Bless you wherever you go. You have been such a blessing to me.

— Love, Dorothy

Thank you for the devotional book “Jesus Calling.” I read it everyday and it always seems appropriate to my circumstances. God bless SOLM.

— Love, Glenda

Thank you for your outpouring of love offerings and blessings to me with utility assistance. When you called last month and told me of a special offering for my needs I just couldn’t believe it. I was terribly ill for 2 weeks, I did not even have the strength to pray for help. The Holy Spirit was truly looking after me through your ministry.

— God bless you all and your mission! Elisabeth

Thank you for fulfilling the need of one of your “Dear Sheep” through this gift in my Mother Elsie’s honor. God Bless You for helping “This One” on Mother’s Day.

— In Christ your sister in Sacramento, Elyse

What a God send this ministry has been to my family during a time when one our family members went through cancer. I can’t thank you enough for your prayers and all your generosity! Your ministry is a God send. I pray you will be blessed abundantly.

— God bless your loving heart, Cindy

Thank you so much for paying my gas and electric bills last month. It has helped tremendously and I appreciate it very much. It makes your “praise report” even bigger when you share with friends and family members that someone you don’t even know has helped you. Truly God is working through your ministry.

— Thank you, Molly

Thank you for your faithfulness to the call of the Lord on your life. SOLM has blessed many as you have honored Him.

— Blessings, Phylis

Thank you for hearing my cry for help and responding. The prayer over the phone and financial aid truly helped during my time of physical healing.

— Bless you, Sandie

Thank you for your kindness and willingness to share your resources. I can’t tell you what a blessing you and the ministry is for me at my time of need. I pray you are abundantly blessed!

— Karen

Thank you. A kind heart brings delight to God. Bless this ministry for your caring spirit and your willingness to give of your time to so many in need. I appreciate you being the “wings” for my angel.

— Blessings, Amy

Dear kind people of Shepherds of Love, Thank you so very much for the book Jesus Calling! This book helped point me to scriptures in the Bible where I found hope. It was a big surprise to find a package in the mailbox that was not a medical bill. Your timing was great in sending this and thank you for paying my utility bills. I thank God for you!

— Janie

Dear sweet Sister Teresa, Your heart for Jesus and your love His children is a blessing far greater than you can imagine. Thank you for all your love, prayers and help during my serious illness. We are all aware of the Lord’s hand in it all, and thankful for His hands at work through Shepherds of Love.

— Love, Peggy and family

When things seem to be unraveling just remember who is knitting all things together for good. Romans 8:18, We are blessed to know you and your wonderful ministry. Please know we will be praying for you. Thank you for sharing your need with us. Blessings for 2013.

— Love, Paul & Genealea (monthly donor)

Teresa, I am so sorry this donation is late. The “lambs” stories break my heart. I so wish I could give more. Working toward that goal! Much love in Christ.
