Update My Fathers House Visalia

During our week of isolation, Pam and I went hiking.  There were many other people who had the same idea.  It was beautiful and we stayed a good distance away from each other.

On the hike we crossed a couple with two beautiful kids.  The man looked at me and I looked at him and we both knew we knew each other somewhere.  Then it came to me (it usually takes a while for things to “come to me”) and this man was from our program over a year ago.  He had come to us from prison and had worked hard to restore relationships, break his pattern of addiction and start a new life in Christ.  He had made great progress and moved from our program to his family’s house.  We talked some and he thanked me for being there for him.  He looked healthy and happy with his family.  As we walked away, I was proud to apart of God’s restoration in people’s lives.
