Ryan who serves on our Operation Joy project has been a follower of Jesus Christ for six years now. Before working with us at Manchester City Mission he used to be a site manager, working on building sites, up and down the country.

Ryan tries to keep in contact with old workmates by social media and last week received a message asking for his mobile number. Recognising the message as coming from an old friend Ryan arranged to meet B the next day.

Ryan says “I met B outside in a public place, he broke down saying his life was not going well and that he is sick of making bad choices.” B went on to say that over the years he had followed Ryan’s journey and seen the transformation God has done. B said, “If the God Ryan serves can do that for him, could He do it for him?”

Ryan showed B from the Bible how God has a plan and a purpose for all of us and is longing for us to return to Him. Having explained repentance and that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved. B said he wanted to give his heart to the Lord and Ryan lead him in a prayer of repentance.

Ryan will continue to support B in every way we can on his new journey. Ryan is looking for a church in Rochdale that will support B.
