This morning the Mission family celebrated with Robin Mackey as she marked the completion of the 1 year Christian Discipleship Program. With almost almost 18 months of sobriety, Robin is an example of how the gospel can change a life.
One of the volunteer study leaders encouraged Robin to attend her church, Kingdom Community Church. "Miss Jeannie" would make the effort to come to the Mission each Sunday to take Robin and others to church. She found a loving congregation who has gathered around her to care for her even after she leaves the Mission. Her pastor, Rev. Rusty Wills, offered words of encouragement to the assembled guests. The ceremony had to be moved from the chapel to the dining hall - a testimony to the impact Robin's testimony has made on so many people.
