“It’s Hasn’t Been an Easy Road……But It’s Been a Blessing”

But Mike wasn’t ready to change…yet. He spent more years homeless and even committed crimes. But when Mike was led to the Lord, God began transforming him, inside and out – miraculously leading to his sentence being reduced.
The day after his release, he came to the Rescue Mission.
At times, Mike’s transition at the Rescue Mission has been difficult. But as he recovered, and established relationships with staff and other men in our 12-month Men’s Recovery Program, his heart softened toward others – and he has grown into the kind of person he’s always wanted to be.
He’s earned his GED, worked in our warehouse, our office and our kitchen – and graduated!
“I’ve accomplished more than I ever planned.”
Following his graduation, Mike entered our extended Culinary Arts Program and to continue to build a new life for himself.
Mike uses his favorite Bible verse, Micah 7:16, to describe his own changed life: “All the nations of the world will stand amazed at what the Lord will do for you.” “The important thing is,” he says, is that “you have to let Him do it.”
