An Amazing Place to Be

     I had the pleasure of picking up a young man from the local County Jail a little while ago to come join our New Life Recovery Program.  When we first walked into the Garland Thompson Men’s Center, I got called away for a moment.  I came back, and this is what I saw:  our friend from Isaiah 58:10 Ministries and our Events Coordinator praying with our new guest as he wept.  What a truly amazing place for each of us to be; staff, volunteers, and guests alike.
     I was blessed to see this example of the Lord leading HIS servants to the right people, at the right time and place.  Later, I was able to challenge this man to give his problems, cares, and concerns to Jesus, for His yoke is easy and His burden is light.  What a great promise He gives us.
     May Jesus keep using Open Door Mission to point people to Jesus.  I am so thankful for each staff member.  We all are making a kingdom difference.
