It’s been a year since we hired the homeless middle-aged man, M. You may read that post here. In this past year he has learned how to work in several different jobs in this bookstore. He has paid down his Visa account. M has moved in to a room in a house where he has a bed, heat, a place to cook, and a lock on the door. He told us that it had been 450 days since he had slept in a real bed. Since the move into his own residence M’s work has improved significantly. Eating balanced meals and sleeping through the night in a place where he feels secure has made a big difference in his productivity as well as his self-confidence. We are glad that he is part of the life of this ministry-which-is-the-store.
