Randy's Story

Randy’s alcoholism not only brought an end to an 18-year relationship, it left him homeless.

“When I was drinking, I was a monster. I was verbally abusive, and it came to where it could have been physical. That frightened her. I realized then that words can hurt just as much as fists.”

It was only then that Randy realized he desperately needed help and came to the Mission.

“When I first came in, I tried to pray but I couldn’t. At first, all I could say was ‘Jesus, Jesus.’ Later I would just pray, ‘Help me.’ I didn’t know what to say, I was so broken.”

It took three months in our program at Calvary Colony for Randy to begin to change. “The devotionals really helped me a lot…and having time to be alone with the Lord.”

During his time in the program, Randy’s relationship with God and understanding of God has grown, and he now wants to minister to others.

Randy not only graduated from our recovery program, but he’s been baptized! “I’m thanking God for what He’s doing in my life. I realize that I was drinking because of unresolved things in my life. I didn’t realize until being at the Colony that I had been holding on to a lot of things. I drank because I felt like a failure. I was a prisoner in my own mind, and the Lord set me free from that.”

“I want to thank God for the Mission, all of it. I pray that other men will reach out and take advantage of it. It’s truly a life-saver.”
