Thankful for a Father’s Love…Part 2

Nov 10, 2017  |     |   General

Continued from Thursday, 11/9

     John went into another downturn after his father’s death. He fell back into the cycle of

addiction. His part time restaurant job barely covered his expenses. But it was there that John ran into David Eischeid, an Open Door Mission staff member.
     “Just being around Dave woke me up. And he was patient, consistent with me. He reminded me how much better life was when following our
Heavenly Father, and he asked me to think about coming to Open Door Mission.
     “I came to the Mission. I got here, I got sober. I’ll work to get my CDL back. My daughter and her family just moved into town. I’m blessed to have the chance to get to know my grandchildren.
     “I’m thankful I made peace with my earthly father before he died, but it took my Heavenly Father to show me how to love. This is a safe place to take time to reconnect with my Lord God. God bless everyone who works with me here, and thank God I found Open Door Mission.”
     Thank you for providing a place for John and so many others to find the love of our Father in heaven!
