Each day our team from Adult & Teen Challenge prepares and serves over 600 meals for the Lighthouse Mission. This provides a great environment of trust and respect and we are able to ministry, pray and help the community there. We have seen many lives like Charlotte’s impacted, and are honoured to be apart of this ministry.
My life was out of control because drugs brought me to my darkest and lowest moments, becoming a meaningless black hole. I used to go to Lighthouse Mission a lot and one day I climbed up onto the roof to get some sleep. As I sat there, a fellow from the mission came up to speak with me. He was able to encourage and pray for me. He told me there was hope and how Adult & Teen Challenge could help. We came off the roof and soon I was on my way to Brandon.
The moment I walked through the door, I knew I was taking a huge step to a better life. The journey has not been easy but God is teaching me to trust in Him as He truly loves me. I just graduated from the program and have started the SURGE leadership training. I am not sure what my future holds but if I keep walking toward Jesus, I don’t need to fear for He is with me all the way!
