The mission is my home right now

We love sharing these stories because God uses testimonies to draw other people close to him. Jacob is another one of God’s miracles, as he is a shining example of what surrendering one’s life to Christ looks like. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Jacob and being firsthand witnesses to power of God’s restorations!

"I started this program homeless, addicted to drugs and alcohol, lost, alone, and broken inside. I was haunted by my past and the bad choices I had made. I was stuck in a cycle of self-destruction. In the beginning of my first thirty days in the New Life Program, I came into the chapel, and I had a breakthrough. From then on I surrendered my life to God. God is changing me from the inside out! I’m not the same person I was when I walked in here. Every staff member has treated me with compassion and the love of Christ. “I am no longer defined by my addictions; I’m defined as a child of God.” The mission is my home right now, and I am truly grateful for this opportunity at a new life. I thank the Lord for bringing me here because my life will never be the same.”"
