Joel had worked hard all his life. But his rootless lifestyle, moving from one oil field to the next in search of a decent-paying job, got him in trouble. Away from his wife, family, and close friends for long stretches, he felt alone and without purpose. Then Joel and his wife got divorced. He fought the heartache with the weapons he knew best: alcohol and denial. “Somewhere in the back of my mind, I knew it wasn’t helping,” Joel says. “I can be stubborn. I wasn’t quite ready to surrender my troubles to God, but I knew enough to come to Montana Rescue Mission.” Once here, Joel flourished almost immediately. He quit drinking. His no-nonsense attitude and sterling work ethic earned him the respect of his peers. Most importantly, he began building a relationship with the Lord. Joel learned to forgive himself, and now he’s focused on the future!
These days Joel works at our Men’s Shelter where he takes pride in stocking the pantry shelves with donated goods. “I am hoping that I can work here full-time,” he says. “I’d like to show other guys that if I can change, there’s hope for anyone.”
Joel’s Message to You
Joel asked to share this special note with you and other generous friends of the Mission: “Please, keep doing what you are doing. You are helping tremendously and in so many ways. I just wish you could come here and see what your giving does for people. I’d be honored to show you.”
