Shattered to Strong

Darrell arrived at The Jimmie Hale Mission with only the clothes on his back. He’d lost everything, including his family.

“I had nowhere to go and no one to turn to,” he said. “The Mission provided me with safety and stability while I tried to put my life back together.”

Darrell said the Christ-centered atmosphere offered an opportunity to get closer to God and strengthen his faith. “God was all I had left,” he said. “I completely turned my life and all decisions over to God. I lost all the fear and dread I had been feeling.”

Darrell admitted that learning patience was difficult, but he believed “God was working things out and hadn’t forgotten” about him.

After 10 months in the program, Darrell was celebrating sobriety and had even secured a full-time job.

“I know I am where God wants me to be and I feel truly blessed,” he said. “My faith is strong, I know God is with me and I am just waiting to see what He has in store for the rest of my life.”

It’s because of your support that Darrell got a chance at a changed life.
