My friend, Pops, walked into my office at Union Rescue Mission a few months ago, just as I was returning to work after a heart attack and quadruple bypass surgery. Pops said, ‘I need this place more than it needs me!’ I responded, ‘I know exactly how you feel!’ As he left my office I wondered to myself, how does a murderous, drug dealing, heroin addict of over 50 years turn into a God-fearing, sensitive gentleman who now only wants to serve and encourage others who are struggling? I knew the answer.
2 Corinthians 5:17
New International Version (NIV)
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
When Pops wandered into the back door of Union Rescue Mission nearly three years ago, trying to save his life and escape the 50 years of addiction that had destroyed him physically, mentally and spiritually, he not only saved his life, but he found new life and became a new man through the resurrecting power of Jesus Christ. Watch Pops’ Story to hear Pops tell more of his amazing story of transformation.
That is what happens at Union Rescue Mission. Precious men like Pops don’t just get well through our mental, medical, dental and legal clinics, discipleship, learning and PE classes, they come face to face with the transforming power of our Savior Jesus Christ!
We are so thankful you are willing to be a participant in this work that transforms men like Pops.
