Hope from homelessness

Ryan who serves in our Operation Joy project has been working with a gentleman called P, who has been experiencing homelessness.

P came to Ryan through the Operation Joy Drop-In in Oldham, when P came to the Drop-In he was really nervous, and could not be around other people. Ryan spent some time working alongside his niece, helping him to get registered with a doctor, his niece decided to take him in until we were able to find him somewhere to live.

After a few weeks of coming to the Drop-In, P gave his heart to the Lord, and Ryan said that you could see a real change in his confidence. He had started to interact with the other guys that use the service and got involved in the Bible reading group that Ryan also does through the Drop-In.

After a discussion with Cath our Next Stage Housing Co-ordinator, we were able to get P an interview with Homes of Hope who we have worked with for a number of years.

Ryan took P to the interview and, after an hour of discussion with the organisers, they came to the decision that they would be more than happy to give P a place to live. They will also support him with his new found faith and help him overcome any lifelong struggles.

Ryan will continue to support P on this new journey, and work together with Homes of Hope.
