I work at the Open Door Mission because I am a Christian and the Lord is King here. I enjoy the interaction with the staff and the interaction with the men who are allowing God to change their lives. I have my office in the Permanent Supportive Housing building which allows me to interact with the guests and their kids. Every morning the kids come into my office for a piece of candy and they all give me a big hug and tell me to have a Blessed Day. I am a witness with the success stories through the men that worked for me over the summer months especially those who worked in the garden and those who did the lawn care. I enjoyed working with one individual especially and his name is Gary. Gary and I have become friends and we talked daily. I have come to know Gary and his family and I respect him very much. Gary has turned his life completely around with the help of the mission. Gary tells me daily how lucky he is to have come as far as he has and he owes it all to God because without God he would not be here.
