Tyrone is celebrating new life this Easter!
Thank you for touching his life with hope.

“I can’t live like this anymore…”

When Tyrone was a little boy, everyone he loved was an addict. “I grew up in an alcoholic family. My mother, my father, my uncles and my cousins all drank. I hung around them instead of children my own age and I started drinking at 10 years old.”

For the next 40 years, Tyrone struggled with alcohol and drug abuse, landing him in trouble with the law, and eventually, leaving him homeless. “I was living on the streets, wondering how to help myself, how to get out of that situation,” he says.

His girlfriend’s brothers were staying here at the Rescue Mission, and when they learned about Tyrone’s struggle, they called and told him about our Life Builders Program. “I said, ‘I can’t live like this anymore. I’m on my way to the Rescue Mission.’ And the day I stepped through the doors, I quit doing drugs and drinking. I put everything in God’s hands.”

Through our programs’ Bible studies, chapel services, devotions and biblical counseling, Tyrone has reconnected with his heavenly Father. “I’d walked away from God and the Rescue Mission brought me back to Him.”

“I’ve learned to focus on Christ.”

We also connected Tyrone with GED classes at Forsyth Technical College, and after he completed our Life Builders Program, he earned his high school diploma, as well as a plumber’s certificate, a computer certificate and a career readiness certificate. “I got a job, started saving money and moved into my own apartment,” he says, proudly.

Tyrone is still a faithful member of the church he began attending his first week here at the Rescue Mission. And, in his free time, he shares his testimony with the men in our programs. “I’m going on 13 years of a clean and wonderful life.”

Your generous support has filled Tyrone’s life with love, encouragement, and most of all, hope this Easter season. “The Rescue Mission helped me learn to live a godly life and be the man God wants me to be.”
