Kansas City Rescue Mission
December 11, 2009

In two-thousand and six, I made a lousy decision. I had a live in girlfriend that came here from Florida. She stayed with me for a year, then she told me one day in Sept.2007 that she wanted to go home. I told her that I wanted to go with her. Stayed in Florida for two months, couldn't find a job and we got evicted from the run down trailor we lived in. Her mom took us in the follow November. Gave me a week to find a job. I couldn't find a job, so they sent me back here to Kansas City. Couldn't go home to the family, so I checked into the Kansas City Rescue Mission the following Monday as an overnighter. During Christmas a news reporter from one of the local stations was interviewing the guys from the shelter behind a Salvation Army truck and they asked me how I felt about it. I told them that I feel like there's hope for the homeless. Little did I know that my niece was watching the news that night. She told my sister that I was on TV. The following February, my sister took me in and it was nothing but day to day problems. The following May I came back to the Rescue Mission. Then one day the next month, a guy that's in C-corps told me that I should get into the program so I wouldn't have to carry my bags around all day. Been in the Transistion program since last June. I now have a job waiting for me next January. Jesus loves you all and so do I.
