Gilbert is one of those people who can fix anything, and he enjoys the work.
But when his employer lost the contract on the facility they were building, life fell apart fast. “They lost their contract and I lost my townhouse, car, everything.”
Gilbert had never experienced hunger or homelessness before in his life.
“It was a shock. I’ve worked for 45 years and never had to depend on anybody but me. And I would help anybody in need because it’s the right thing to do,” he says. “I ended up coming to Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM), because I couldn’t pay for a motel room anymore.”
Like thousands of other men and women who come through the Mission doors each day, Gilbert received a good hot meal and safe place to stay.
Our staff also prayed with and for Gilbert and explained that DRMM is a place to rebuild broken lives through the love of Christ.
Your compassionate gifts not only helped Gilbert in his time of need, but inspired him to pay it forward and help others. His life is nothing like it was and his faith is renewed—all thanks to caring friends and donors like YOU!
