Ten months after coming to the Mission, Ken graduated from the Men’s Recovery Program. Ken credits the City Rescue Mission with saving his life. “I’m extremely grateful to all the pastors, staff and volunteers for showing me grace while I went through this process. “ Humble and tender-hearted, Ken now puts his trust in God.
Ken serves as a Mission front desk worker. With a love for others, Ken looks for opportunities to encourage men new to the Recovery Program. “When somebody new comes in the door, I see myself.” Remebering how he felt the first day in the program, Ken’s goal is to help men struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. With his servant’s heart, Ken is confident. Showing tears of joy, he recites his favorite verse of scripture, Romans 12:2. “It’s not over. I have a lot of work to do. I have to stay in the Word and apply the Word to my life.” Ken encourages anyone to enter the Mission’s recovery program: “If I can do it , anyone can.”
