The photo chosen to represent the Mission's Centennial 3-6-5 project tells its own story of triumph. Recently, we had the opportunity to witness a graduation celebration from our Life Transformation Program. The graduate had completed the required one year of intensive Bible study, classes, and counseling. While a year of sobriety is quite a milestone, the graduation ceremony is really only that, a milestone. A marker along the path we are all taking as we journey to our final destination. The gifts of those who support the Mission offered this man a means of "Rescue" from the path of addiction he had traveled for so long. However, there is still a long road ahead of him. As the Mission takes a smaller, supportive role, the responsibility belongs to the graduate, as to whether he'll stay on this new path or return to the old, destructive path. We appreciate what you have done to help us help this graduate and ask that you continue to pray for him as he seeks to rebuild his life on a new foundation.
