If you have ever heard the term, “Such a time as this,” that is what it is like at the Open Door Mission. More than ever lives are being changed by the help of others. As men and women come to the Learning Center they find out that all is not lost that they can learn and grow.
Recently, I have been working with a lady 60 years of age who has come into the Journey To Work Program. She has some learning disabilities and was afraid that learning was impossible. Soon she found phonics to be a challenge but she could do it. So many people walk around as if all is lost and there is not hope. I try hard to let those that come through the Learning Center know that, with Christ, there is hope and a way out of the old life.
