I was gung-ho for this charity until very recently. I gave money, donated goods to the thrift shop, helped transport food, shopped at the thrift shop before going to any others, recommended this charity to my friends. Recently, unfortunately, the attitudes have changed. My friends feel unacknowledged when donating... the women who live there act as though they own the downtown streets, the thrift store staff is as bad as Wal-Mart on a really bad day... arrogance and entitlement have replaced the humble and grateful attitudes we had so admired in the staff and clients/residents. If the attitudes I and others have seen recently are Christian attitudes, then I am sorry to say that the saduccees would be proud. I am praying that this no-longer-Christian agency can find its way back.
We are very sorry for whatever incident may have caused these feelings. We do the best we can to recognize all our donors because we appreciate you all so much. Please forgive us for any wrong on our part and we would love the opportunity to make this right with you. our sincerest apologies go out to you.
My name is Chris Patrick and I have been involved with Wings of Life since 1998. It is a wonderful place for people to come to for help with an alcohol or drug problem. I have seen thousands of people helped and change for the better with God's help! Besides also feeding the homeless daily and ccoking over 18,000 meals a year, they train the people they help to give back to the community by going to schools and drug infested neighborhoods to reach the children and youth and give their testimonies. In other words, drug prevention is better than the cure, but Wings is involved with both. I am so glad that God let me be involved at Wings of Life!
Hi,my name is Andrea Monceaux and I am a Minister of the Wings of Life.When I came or crawled into the Wings of Life I was bound in so many ways,I had chains binding me from addictions,from mindsets,from religiousity,I was one messed up chic,BUT GOD..You see I found myself after years of self inflicted torment wondering how had I spent so many years to get to this,to the point in my life where I thought death,suicide was the answer.The enemy had me convinced that the world would be a better place with out me,that I was in the way ,and I was in the way, of his wicked plot to steal kill and destroy,BUT GOD..You see I had tried rehabs,I had tried God and church,I had tried relationships of every kind and I was ate up with misery and anger,I was a passenger in my own life watching the days ,months,years pass by..NO matter how much I smoked,snorted,drank,shotup or how many pills I took I couldn't get away from me or the nightmare my life had become.You see I was saved from a young age,I got filled with God 's Precious Presence and Spirit when I was young and I truly believe that is all that kept me,you see God had a plan and would not relent till I came back home to HIM.When I came to the Wings slowly but surley those chains fell off,You see there is something about HIS Presence that changes,and it can be found in abundance there,there is something about being around on fire for Jesus people that long to please HIM that inspires and ignites you,I found it there.There is something about getting around mentors warriors and people that don't just talk it out but walk it out that show it is possible...Jesus is alive and real and this awesome anointed group of people that work and invest in the Wings of Life are gonna be blessed here and there for they are sowing eternal seeds..Won't you???Be a part of what God is doing at such a time as this,God Bless you..... :)
Hello my name is Benjamin and I am a Minister at the Wings of Life. I came to the Wings in November 2006, broken, hurt, hopeless, and lifeless. When I came here I had no idea that I was going to be introduced to a relationship with Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. I grew up in church as a child but never really knew of a relationship with Jesus I was bound by religious activities. I was able to go through the 90 day program, Bible School, and the Ministry Program here at the Wings of Life. Since being here at the Wings of Life I have also been able to travel around the world to Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Africa on mission trips to serve other people and show them the love of Jesus Christ. After traveling to these few countries I have been able to be part of the outreach ministry here at the Wings of Life who goes into the streets of Mobile preaching and teaching others about the power of God to change a life.
Wings of Life is an amazing and wonderful place. Two years ago I was a broken and depressed heroin addict. I came to the Wings of LIfe and they welcomed me like a family. They showed me so much love, which I so desperately needed. It is also where I came into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is unique, in that it offers four bible studies and day, as well as Christian counseling. I am so grateful for the Wings of Life and would recommend it to anyone!
This place is amazing! Lives are saved and hearts regenerated here. The gifts that the Holy Spirit bestows upon His ministers flow freely here as they have submitted their will to Him and His Power is evident. Love overflows!
