Technically I am a client served via the Capitol City Rescue Mission of Albany, NY, however this opportunity to offer my support of a sister mission is a great one.
My name is Anthony McCann. I lived in and was a member of the "New Life Christain Disciple Certificate" program at the Albany rescue mission in 2009-10.
The many services that my mission and indeed all missions across the country provide are essential to the sustaining of neighborhoods where they are located. Principal services that allow one to regain a sense of order and direction (hope) is readily provided and necessary.
My experience allowed me to become a truste member of the mission and to work as a intake desk volunteer on Weekend evenings. needless to point out all things happen from 4pm - midnight at the mission. My training and spiritual advancement enabled me to offer hope and encouragement to men of all walks of life. I grew and God's development of my spiritual purpose on earth has been identified and now I live to serve.
Perhaps $5000.00 doesn't appear like much to those who are gainfully employed, however to aid in the furtherance of the missions statement and purpose, this is a fortune. I thank God daily for my landing in th Capitol City Rescue Mission and I thank all administrative and general staff, esp. my pastor councelor, Rev. Don Lyons. to God be the glory for the things He has already done in the lives that rescue missions touch.
If I can be of further assistance, please contact @ (860) 913-3136 or via email: anthonymccann2000@yahoo.com
