 “I remember at one of my lowest points, crying out to God and asking Him to let me die. I’m thankful now He didn’t answer that prayer. He pulled me out of that muck and mire, and He put me on solid ground.”

“Through the Rescue Mission, God put people in my life to help me, people who didn’t give up on me. They walked with me through all of it. People who really love me and have helped me learn to love myself. So now, I can love others. I’ve been able to face my past instead of hiding from it and it’s brought so much relief and healing.” – Jasmine
