I (David) am in Akron, OH for an Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM) training conference. It is been an amazing experience. On Monday night, 41 of the attendees sat in a circle and shared briefly about our lives. Twenty three of the testimonies were from men who at one time were in rescue mission programs. They spoke about their drug addictions and/or alcoholism. Then they shared about the AMAZING, TRANSFORMING GRACE of God. What an amazing blessing that time was.
The seminar is being hosted by Haven of Rest (http://www.havenofrest.org/)
As I think about the amazing ministry opportunity God's has given me at the Scranton Rescue Mission.
Please remember to be praying for the missions in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre.
It has been a great time and I am looking forward to tomorrow's (Wednesday) sessions. I am especially looking forward to getting back home to my family.
