CITY RESCUE MISSION

Randy's Story


After becoming homeless due to his mental illness, Randy checked himself into a psychiatric hospital. Diagnosed as bipolar, he started to feel hopeless about his future. But on the way out of the hospital, someone told Randy that God was bigger than all of this. “The first thing that I saw when I came to the Mission for shelter was the big cross sign on the outside of the building. I knew instantly that God had brought me here,” he shares. While at the Mission, Randy accepted Christ as his savior and his life has been changed ever since.

"For the first time in my life, I actually
have hope for the future." - Randy

As a Recovery Program participant Randy has been learning what it means to have a relationship with God.  “I’ve learned a lot about the Bible through the classes and chapel services. It’s finally making sense to me.”  Not only has Randy’s attitude improved, he has also noticed some major changes in his mental health.  “I no longer feel anxious or on edge. I realize that God is in complete control and will provide for me.” Turning to God for support each day through prayer, Randy now feels at peace. He is grateful for the comfort and support he receives at the Mission, where all of his needs are provided for. “I no longer have to worry about being hungry. The food is delicious, and thanks to generous donors, there’s always more than enough.” Feeling healthier and happier, Randy continues to flourish in the Recovery Program as he grows in his faith. He enjoys having responsibilities and is always eager to help others. “For the first time in my life, I actually have hope for the future.”
