Fred was born and raised in church. Although he walked away from the church and into an adolescent life of partying, Fred always believed in God. It wasn’t until coming to Good Samaritan, however, that he realized having God back in his life was what he was missing all these years.
Nine months before arriving at GSRM, Fred was living out of state to help a friend in need. Unfortunately he wound up running for his life! Once back in Michigan, he knocked on the door of the Mission. After only one day, Fred declared to follow Jesus; ready to surrender to God’s will. Now reunited with family and back at his church, Fred was just baptized! “The Mission has turned my life around. They can help others just like me. I love the peace I feel now,” Fred says confidently.
