“For three years I wandered the streets of Boise as a result of my addiction to drugs. When other doors were closed, I knew I could count the Boise Rescue Mission to be there. Time after time they faithfully provided for my needs.
Today my plate is full, in fact it is overflowing, but I’ve never forgotten what it’s like to be hungry; physically or spiritually. Nor have I forgotten the repeated message Jesus gave to Peter, “If you love me, feed my sheep”. It’s a humbling call to those who answer it, for it reminds us that, as much as we have received GOD’s love, it is our mission to share the message of His love with others, in words and in deeds.
Forever grateful to the Boise Rescue Mission
Praying that your cup remains full
Friends, this testimony is from a man who found Jesus and a new life at Boise Rescue Mission’s Front Street facility. He is a volunteer at the River of Life today, serving breakfast once a week to the guests.
We sometimes hear complaining about chapel: it’s too long, too loud, too hot, too cold. But we continue to preach Christ and Him crucified. “But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on His name.” (John 1:12) This man is another testimony of that power of God.
Let’s never forget that our primary purpose is to do the work of Evangelists: proclaiming Christ, making disciples. Everything we do at the Mission is important and necessary, but if a person comes through our doors and leaves without having heard the Good News, or seen His love in action, or received a blessing, then we have failed in our responsibility.
Thank you for your service and thanks be to God for His Grace.
Rev. Bill Roscoe
