New Life

Jun 23, 2010  |     |   General

My name is Korina, and I am a former graduate of the New Life Recovery Program. During my stay, I was so grateful to Open Door Mission. I was given the opportunity to re-establish my relationship with my Lord and Savior, as well as re-connecting with my children. I came to the Mission with a history of addiction to meth and alcohol, which had me bound for years. But the Lord, loosed my chains and set me free, not only from addiction, but from the Douglas County Jail! I met a wonderful woman, “Chaplain Joy”, while at my lowest point, ready to give up on life, and the chance of being with my kids, while they were still young. In black and white, it looked impossible. But, “with God, All things are possible”!

After graduating in May of 2009, I came back to volunteer at the Timberlake Outreach Center. It was a way to give back what was so freely given to me. I wasn’t looking for a job at the time – but after witnessing the changes in the new Lydia House, I thought, “Why not apply?” So I applied for the Receptionist Position. Within a couple of days, I was hired. I come to Open Door Mission everyday with such gratitude, and have many opportunities to minister to those in need. It’s not a job to me…this is full time, front line, Ministry.
