Wes — “God Has Given Me My Family Back!”

Wes has been at Helping Up Mission in our 12-month residential Spiritual Recovery Program for almost five and a half months. An older quiet guy, I’m not always certain what he’s thinking.
But recently, Wes made it pretty clear what’s going on in his life. When I returned home this week from my archaeological dig in the Holy Land, I had this message waiting for me:
Hey pastor Gary how’s your vacation? Fine I hope. 

Pastor Gary I’m writing to share with you what my life has become since coming to HUM and accepting Jesus as my lord and saviour. You told me if I did this that he would change my life and he has.

I’m out with my daughters and grandchildren as we speak having a great time. God has given me my family back. So I just want to thank you for pointing me in the right direction cause you said some amazing things would happen if I trust in God and you was right.

I’m living proof. Can’t wait to see you so I can thank you in person. God bless you.


God is alive and well in East Baltimore…and this Jesus stuff still works!
