One Day a man knocked on our door…

….he was thirsty, hungry, and needed a change of clothes. We fed him, we gave him water we offered him three sets of clothes and a place to shower, After a few days he came back and knocked on our door again, He said because you helped me I would like to volunteer, we took him in. We trained him in the kitchen, talked to him and today he took the test for serving safe food and passed the test, Congratulations to Phil, he is on his way towards goals of getting a job, SMDP is making a difference! Serving Jesus in Disguise.
