Faith over Fear

My name is Michiel C. and I am an alcoholic. I was born May 12th, 1972 in Virginia. At age 7, my family moved to Texas and we have lived here ever since.

I attended Dallas Christian School from the fourth grade all the way through graduating high school. My childhood was excellent, and I don’t have any memory of neglect or trauma of any kind. I was blessed with two loving parents who supported me in everything I wanted to do. I was picked on in junior high because I was small and didn’t get any size to speak of till my junior year, but I was always popular. I excelled in school and athletics, mostly track and field in the pole vault. I was the second-best high school vaulter in the nation in my senior year and had dreams of going to the Olympics. I was always seeking approval for either my academic or athletic achievements.

Haircuts for the Men

Rosa from Shiloh Baptist Church was so generous of her time that she came twice and gave free haircuts for those men who wanted or needed haircuts. Pictured above is our resident, Kevin, getting his haircut from Rosa. We appreciate Rosa’s services and her volunteering to help our men feel good about themselves. A new haircut makes us feel like new men.

Thank you Rosa.
