QuintusZ wrote a thread, Pray For People With Addiction, that touched me. I mentored men at a recovery program called City Team Ministries San Francisco. City Team Ministries also has locations in Oakland, San Jose, Portland and Philadelphia. I served there for 14 years and then took a break in 2013. The men's director contacted me a month ago and we discussed my returning to help teach class, mentor and evangelize a new generation of men assigned to me in the program for a few hours each week. These are men who are released from prison, seeking recovery from drugs and alcohol, dysfunctional families and homelessness. The men are in recovery depending on their case 9 to 12 month and have the opportunity to graduate. Sadly, many men have dropped out through the years. Once a guest gets settled in and establishes trust as part of their program they are given a one day pass on Sundays and are encouraged to attend church. Please keep me in prayer that the Lord will use me to mentor men who are assigned to me and help bring them to Christ Jesus. God bless you all and thank you.
