The first Friday of every month we celebrate the birthdays of any residents born that month.
This month we’re celebrating the birthdays of Michael & Walter!
Michael is one of our newer residents. He came to us from Baltimore and started in our program in February of this year. Michael is hoping to head back home eventually so he can return to work and support his family.
Walter has been with us since June of 2012. Walter came to us from all the way over on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. When he arrived, he had just been released from prison with only a paper bag containing a few personal items. Walter had nowhere to go and no transportation.
Even though Walter has been a faithful student in our Foundations program, he will be unable to graduate this summer due to very serious health issues requiring hospitalization and several surgeries. Now that his health issues are improving, Walter has about 7 more months in the program until he can graduate.
Even though Walter has dealt with health issues and other setbacks, he has remained very positive. His positive outlook on life and the future can be attributed to one major change in his life, and he isn’t afraid to tell you all about it!
Walter has a new future and hope because loves to tell anyone who will listen about how he came to know the Lord and will tell anyone without hesitation all that the Lord has done for him!
Join us in wishing Michael & Walter another year of life! And remember to continue to pray for these guys and the countless others who will enter our facilities in one way or another. So many lives are being saved and eternities changed!
