You may recall Rich's story of homelessness and heartache in last Christmas's Expectations when he shared, "I was never with my family. I was always on the street-" where he almost lost his life.

Yet the Lord found him there, and brought him safely here, like so many others with nowhere else to go and no one to count on but neighbors like you.

"Without you, there'd be nothing for us to come to." Rich says gratefully.

It is your generosity that helps make sure men like Rich, who come through our doors in darkness, find the light of transformation in Jesus Christ-and the spiritual foundation that lasts for a lifetime.

Today, Rich is a proud graduate of our New Life Rehabilitation Program-and that's exactly what he's experiencing in the faith: a brand-new life. . .

"Everything has gone full circle for me," he says. "I've gone through the program, which I can say was a blessing. Now here at the Men's Emergency Shelter, I'm head chef!"

Rich not only puts wholesome food on the table for the hungry, he also shares his path to real life change-a wonderful illustration of Christ's command in John 21:17, where Peter replies, "'Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.' Jesus said, 'Feed my sheep.'"

Beyond his commitment to his new family of friends at the Rescue Mission, you'll also be glad to hear Rich has been reunited with his own family, including his excited grandchildren!

"I have an apartment where they can come. I get to celebrate their birthdays, New Year's, Christmas! They are a blessing. I’m so grateful to have them in my life again."

And Rich's transformation from broken to blessed is all thanks to this community of caring friends you're so much a part of through your gifts and prayers.

Rich says, "Thank you for all you provide with a lot of love. It's such a blessing that you give!"
