The Lexington Rescue Mission didn't even exist in my world 4 months ago. The truth is I may never had known, had it not been for a new friend that I met 4 months ago. He shared his story and the impact that the LRM had on his life. The care, the acceptance, and the love that was provided to him reached so much farther than just his physical needs. LRM (clients and their staff) touched his soul, transformed his mind, and changed his life. God's love in the true form of service and acceptance was so attractive that I had to find out for myself and see LRM in action. My first volunteer experience was one that confirmed my friend's story. People, side-by-side, serving each other's needs, to not only build up and support the body of Christ, but also to introduce others to the healing process. No matter what your story is or where you came from, there were others prepared to stand next you and help you in your story of life. I have been volunteering at the rescue center for the last 3 months and just recently, my family became donors in this great organization that truly rescues those and includes them in this great mission. When I think of the LRM and their impact on the Kingdom, I can't help to be reminded and encouraged by God's words in Matthew 25:40. Thank you LRM for allowing me to be a part of something divine and to improve my story through giving and serving.
