The Light

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5).

Whenever a man reaches out to the us for help, he is usually in a pretty dark place. Addiction has stolen everything from him, and he is in a desperate place…not seeing any light at the end of the tunnel.

The moment they walk through our Men’s Residence doors, they can’t help but to be exposed to the light. Every day they are met with love, hope, encouragement, and mercy as each volunteer pours into their lives. The light overtakes the darkness of despair bringing new life to these broken men. Where they could not see a way out of this destructive life, the light shines a path to freedom and peace.

This light helps guide them to restoration with their children and families. This light allows them to finally feel love that maybe they never received as a child from a broken home. The light illuminates their release of the burdens of shame and guilt that they have carried for far too long. The light from these volunteers guides them into a saving relationship with The Light of the World Jesus Christ.

We are so grateful for our volunteers and staff who allow their light to shine in order to overcome the darkness of these men’s lives. When you look at this group of men you can truly see the light shining in the darkness. The light they have been given is now shining so brightly in their hearts that they are now lights of encouragement, hope, and love to others lives who are still lost in the darkness.

If you are wanting to find ways to be the light shining in the darkness within our Men’s Residence email to find out how you can get involved. You too can be a light to shine in the darkness where darkness cannot overcome.
