Transformation At The Rescue Mission

Today was a great day! We had some awesome services at Newbreak Scripps Mesa...Went to lunch with my daughter, grandkids, and some great friends. One of them puts a smile on my face every time.

My good buddy Michael Henry Medlock is a walking miracle. A little over 5 years ago, he was invited to our church by a young marine. Michael would tell you that "he was tore up, from the floor up!" Most days were like that for him. But that invitation was the beginning of a great transformation for Michael.

Over the years, Michael has gone from a life where just about every day was terrible, to a life where nearly every day is a GREAT day! Michael is getting the great support he needs at the San Diego Rescue Mission. Today, he spoke about how much he loves being there...about how much his life has changed...about how much he loves Jesus who is giving him real LIFE!

Once a man living on the streets of San Diego, panhandling to just get by, trapped by an addiction to alcohol, Michael is being set free by the power of God in his life! And now he's beginning to use his story to strengthen and give courage to others. It's really quite an amazing transformation!

I'm so glad God never gives up on us, that He is always pursuing us, no matter what we are going through! I love my buddy Michael Henry!

Here's to the life transformation possibilities that surround us every day!
