Filed Under: Aftercare, Blog, Reintegration, Success Stories
I thank God for leading me to this place I call home. At the start I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy staying at Destiny Rescue but I changed my mind because I knew God had a good plan for me. I thank God for bringing me here and meeting all these wonderful people. They are friendly and kind even though we are from different places and families, I feel like we are from the same family.
Everyone here is loved, supported and given good advice. I was given the opportunity to train at the hair salon. I was worried that I wouldn’t be a very good hairdresser because sometimes I get very tired and am not very strong. But I made it through the training and am now a hairdresser thanks to everyone in the Destiny Rescue home who always encouraged me! They are so wonderful!
I’m so thankful for Destiny Rescue for always being so supportive. Now I’ve accomplished everything that was required of me, and I’ve even been able to provide a new house for my family. The most important thing is that I will now open my own hair salon with my friend – I am so excited.
I praise God and I thank Destiny Rescue, I love this place and will never forget it.
I am glad to write this letter because everything I will say comes from my heart. I have loved living with Destiny Rescue, I have learned so much! I came here when I was about 14 years old, and now I’m 17. I’ve been really happy here since the first day I arrived and have never been unhappy. I used to be uncomfortable staying in other places and meeting other people, but after I came here I made a lot of friends, as I had never had friends before. My life has changed so much. I’ve matured, I can control my mind better and I can solve problems all by myself.
I’m so thankful Destiny Rescue taught me about God. If I didn’t come here I would never have known him. Thank you Destiny Rescue for everything you have taught me, and please forgive me for any mistakes I’ve made.
Thank you Destiny Rescue for teaching me and reminding me that I must use my life. Before I came here, my life was pretty bad. I had never respected my parents. I had never known God, but now I do and am thankful he brought me here. Even though I didn’t know Him before, he still loves me and has a good plan for me.
Because of God, my life has changed so much and is now much better. Because of His grace I have met a lot of good people. I want to thank Destiny Rescue for giving me the opportunity to complete salon study. Thanks for being so supportive.
I am excited about the future as I know God has a good plan for me.
When I completed school I decided I would work at a noodle shop for about 20 days. During that time I began to feel very tired and weary, so I decided to try work in a karaoke shop because I hadn’t experienced it before. I didn’t know what it would be like. One day my uncle called me and asked me to work in the karaoke restaurant, so I said yes.
I started working at the karaoke bar in the evenings, and prayed to God to lead me as I didn’t know what would happen next. While I was working I met someone from Destiny Rescue, he asked me why I worked there and I told him I wanted to know what it was like. He then offered me to come live at Destiny Rescue, which would provide education, training and a job for me – so I said yes!
When I came to Destiny Rescue I made many friends and have learnt how to live with other people. I feel so close to God and have learned many things, I have grown in maturity and had the chance to train at the hair salon. When I first started I didn’t know much, so watched carefully. I began to feel tired again like at the noodle shop but I didn’t want to give up because I want to be a professional.
It wasn’t easy to complete the study but I made it through because God was with me. After that I had the chance to work at the Destiny Rescue Hair Salon. Now I am going to open my own salon with my friend.
I want to thank God for letting me have my own salon shop which has been a dream for a long time – my dream is coming true! I believe God will provide good timing for me always.
I want to tell other girls that if they need to do something, then trust God. There is nothing he can’t do for us. God loves us all!
