Permanent Supportive Housing at Open Door Mission

At times on the Open Door Mission campus, we are have the opportunity to serve individuals and families while they are working to overcome and break the chains of addiction. With the recovery process of the Permanent Supportive Housing, we get to partner with our residents at a different stage. This is a longer stage. The stage that generally happens at the Permanent Supportive Housing, isn't the reuniting of families, kicking the addiction, or graduating a program. It is the long road of knitting a family back together. We help families grow stronger together. 

Here is a video of one of our residents living with us in our Permanent Supportive Housing units. She is doing well and we get to be a key part in her life NOW! Thank you for your partnership in changing lives. Without our donors, this would not be possible.

Sharing the Love of Christ

During an intake a man communicated that he did not know he had eternal life in Jesus 
Christ. I was able to share the gospel with him and he prayed to receive Christ into his life. It is interesting that I knew his uncle from years ago. God is the orchestrator of circumstances. What a privilege to share the gospel and see someone ask Jesus into their heart. 1 Peter 5:6-7 - Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Power of the Holy Spirit Working in the House

During one of the chapel services last week, Robert a soon-to-be New Life Recovery Program Graduate shared his testimony with the other guests and students living on Open Door Mission's campus. The end result of chapel was a man asked Jesus into his heart. This guy is gloriously saved. I did his intake to the emergency side after the staff and fellow guests and students did his intake to the Kingdom of Heaven.  When I talked with him he was expressing joy and assurance in his life. He is planning on joining the New Life Recovery Program. Please keep him and the mission in your prayers. Thank you for your support.
