Advancement Testimony


I grew up in a single parent home. My parents divorced when I was young.  Many things traumatized me.  My brain used to only store negative things.  I would drink at 4 in the morning and go to work drunk.  After a few years of working while drink, I had to do a drug and alcohol test.  I couldn't get away with that any more.  So, I was living on the ‎street and still gave in to the drugs and alcohol. The temptation was too great.

When I was here 10 years ago, I made some changes, but ‎never stopped listening to Satan. I need to make sure that I am focusing on God, not religion. I enjoyed going to lively church services, but I still did not focus on God.  UGM helps me focus on God and God alone.  Now, I look to focus on God, to find His nature and His creation in everything. He grace is sufficient for me.

I am an inheritance, a child of God.   He is my Father.  Now I have new role models here at UGM.  I remember the encouragement that the chaplains gave to me when I have very difficult days.  I try to remember these things now, instead of the negative things that were always in my mind. 

My favorite Bible verse I remember:

  • the Lord is my shepherd
  • Psalm 91
  • the Lord's prayer

I look forward to the next phase of recovery.

Manitoba Youth Groups

A group of about 20 youth and leaders came from Evangelical Christian Baptist Church in Altona to serve and give the chapel service this week.  They blessed the guests that came with some great music, singing, and a message.  Afterward they helped in various areas of the mission, helping to serve, clean up, sort clothing, etc.

Another mission group that comes each week from Steinbach came on the same evening.  Some helped deliver Adult Education brochures to the Point Douglas area of Winnipeg, and others helped out at the Mission for the evening.  So many things got accomplished throughout the Mission that would never have been completed, had these groups not come to serve.

We are blessed beyond words by the help and support of our Manitoba Churches!  Thank you to everyone who gives of your time to serve at Union Gospel Mission in each of our various ministries.  You are making a difference in the lives of the individuals here for God’s Kingdom!

Advancement Testimony

I started off in life in a home with drug and alcohol abuse, sexual and immoral behavior and abuse.  I saw that was not the way to behave. I had to be a father to my brother, as my parents had left him abandoned several times.  I did not start drinking until I was in my 40's. 

‎I was reunited with my father in my 30's  and it was so wonderful to have that relationship with him after so many years.  We drove truck together for a decade.   It was later, when my father’s health was suffering and passed away, that I took my first drink.  It all spiraled from there.

In early May of this year my brother came to see me.  They dragged me kicking and screaming to UGM.  At first I made things very difficult.  It was not an easy transition.  But soon I experienced a paradigm shift.  God has shown me so much, now I have not had a single craving. 

Thank you to all the staff for working with me and housing all of us who are addicted to drugs and alcohol.  You have a big job! Now I have to keep progressing in my faith and growing in Christ. 

Prov 20:1 - Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.
