I was on a greyhound bus heading to see my family in Kentucky.  I was supposed to get off in Clarksville, TN but I fell asleep.  Before I knew it, the driver was announcing our arrival to St. Louis, Missouri.  I had no money or place to stay in St. Louis.  So, I asked the police to help me find a shelter.  They were unable to convince St. Patrick’s to take me in, so they got me some food and a drink and pointed out some shade for me to rest.  As I walked to the spot, Dave and Pastor Mark from NLEC asked me if I would like to meet Rev. Rice and get some food and hygiene items.

I was very hungry so when he said that they had cereal, I jumped at the chance to eat.

Rev. Rice told me he had been praying for a miracle, and so had I.  Rev. Rice told me he had an opening at NLEC’s Safe House and I was welcome to come stay.  I could feel the power of the Lord working.  I am so thankful for Rev. Rice and NLEC staff for taking me in and giving me a safe place to lay my head!  Now, I am joining the Residential Training Program and am excited to be able to help others who are hurting and homeless.
