Sarah hasn’t celebrated Christmas in years. During her battle with addiction, she was separated from her family and her faith. Lost, broken, and desperate, she realized it was time to get clean. But like many attempts in the past, she feared falling right back into old habits. That was when a friend told her about the Mission.
Sarah was excited for the new approach. She felt ready to reconcile her relationship with Christ, but knew she needed help and structure to do so. It is why she decided to join Jesus First, a long term program within our Women’s Ministry that focuses on recovery and healing from the past.
“I needed a fresh start and a new take on my recovery. Nothing had worked before and I realize now it’s because I needed Jesus,” shares Sarah. Keeping her faith throughout her addiction was a struggle. While at the Mission, she has been able to focus on rebuilding her relationship with Christ and discovering the strength that comes with it.
