“I really thank the Mission’s donors . . . a lot!” —John

John thoroughly enjoyed being a businessman and was living a good, prosperous life until he became embroiled in a legal matter that consumed him for three long years. By the end, John was completely wiped out and just a shell of his former self. “I lost everything,” he says.

He turned to The Scott Mission and found the help he needed—food, shelter, clothing, and encouragement that life could be good again.

He was very moved when we prayed for him and shared that God had plans for him—on earth and for eternity. That was the day John’s life started over and, today, he’s secure in Christ’s love and grateful for help from friends like you, which encourages him daily.

“Without The Scott Mission, I wouldn’t have survived,” John says. “When you’re at your lowest, if you need real help, the Mission will give it.”

“I really thank the Mission’s donors . . . a lot,” he says with a broad smile. “I’m the happiest man in the world.”

Thank you for your compassion and generosity that impacts lives like John’s each day! Please make a gift now so the Mission can continue to provide meals, clothing, spiritual healing, counselling, and more for men who are hungry, hurting, and homeless.
