Hope on Christmas - Light of Life Rescue Mission

Hope on Christmas


On Christmas morning, our Street Outreach team visited the homeless camps around the North Side to distribute gifts. A volunteer accompanied the team and played guitar while they sang worship songs and prayed with the homeless. One man wept as the group began to sing Amazing Grace.

He opened up with staff member Evan Burns and revealed that he was feeling hopeless and had been planning to jump off the West End Bridge. The team prayed with him, and shared the truth of Jesus’ sacrificial love. He agreed to come to the Mission to discuss joining the Men’s Recovery Program.
