I am proud to consider myself to be blessed and unstoppable. I am currently a Resident Assistant, a graduate of the New Life Program at the Long Beach Rescue Mission. In Long Beach Ca. Where I am also a current resident. This experience has taught me humility, gratitude, and the riches of service to others who are experiencing homelessness in this community. Life may have knocked me down, but it hasn't knocked me out. I relish the opportunity you are giving to achieve total restoration of self. At the same time being of humble service to my brothers and sisters in Christ. Oh yes, all lives matter. Poverty, pain, and lack. Trust me, sees no color.
