He was born again but had lost his way and wanted to recommit…

Ryan who serves in our Operation Joy project tells the story of how this gentleman that came into the Ashton Drop-In wanted to recommit.

We are at Infinity Initiatives café every Tuesday from 12-4pm. Ryan is normally accompanied by two volunteers who go out onto the streets to see if there is anybody in need.

This week as the volunteers went out they bumped into a homeless gentleman. The volunteers asked if he needed help and he said that he was struggling with addiction and as a result he had lost his family.

Ryan said “This gentleman stepped into the Drop-In and said that he was born again but had lost his way.” He also confessed that he had been dabbling with other spiritual stuff and felt that this had impacted his life.

Ryan was able to explain that we can easily lose our way and that the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeing who he can devour (1 Peter 5:8) and that we serve a merciful God, full of compassion (Psalm 86:15). Ryan then took him to the story of the Prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32). Ryan felt like the gentleman was ready to recommit. Ryan and the man prayed a prayer of salvation and renounced the things that he had been messing around with

We as an organisation are now looking for a church that will continue to support this gentleman and also get him connected with a rehabilitation centre. Ryan will also continue to support him through the Ashton-Under-Lyne Drop-In.
