With over six months under my belt as Director of the Garland Thompson Men’s Center, I am amazed by God’s handiwork. I was blessed to have been on the Board of Directors for a few years, and have also enjoyed volunteering. Through all that, He has brought together a staff at the Garland Thompson Men’s Center that reflects Jesus Christ everyday to the men they serve.
With staffing positions still open, they have stepped up time and time again to cover timeslots and positions that normally are not theirs. They do so without complaint. While filling these positions has taken longer than I had hoped, it is apparent God has seen fit to deliver men who possess qualities mentioned in 2Peter:5-8. His glory shines through these men. I am a better man for them being in my life.
