Blessed and Redeemed
Mr. Dave Ward titled his story: Blessed and Redeemed. His current career as the Transitional Relational Coordinator at the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission is a position he created and proposed after his experiences and complete transformation as a former resident of the program. Needless to say, they eagerly accepted his proposal. Now he helps folks entering the program not to be scared or on the defense so that love and openness can become transitional tools for their lives. Dave's before-and-after photos are a testament to his transformation and the current joy he feels in his ministry.
His is a powerful story formed by his 48 years of addictions as a drug dealer and consumer that spanned the United States and ultimately led to homelessness in our Fort Wayne community.
