Lives Restored: Durham Rescue Mission Testimonies


Victory Program Student

When I first started the victory program I was so nervous about everything, but those six months went by so fast. You learn so much in those classes.

Alex started working as a sorter of donated clothing, but as he gained victory in his addictions, he began working for the director of education, and then the donor relations office. He discovered his strength, ambition, and dignity returning.
…the Durham Rescue Mission became my refuge. I have now been at the Durham Rescue mission for six months. After two months I was taken off all psych meds. Now I’m finishing up the classroom part of their Victory Program.

Tywone’s Testimony

On a cold December morning of 2017, I walked into the front door of the Durham Rescue Mission and turned over my own self will; and in a small office off from the chapel, I surrendered my body, my mind, and all that I was in repentance to God.
I knew that it was God all along who had spared my life, but I never could figure out why. Now, I know that He just had a different plan for my life.

Former Director of Men’s Division

In October 2002, I got saved for real. God mended my shattered life, and I am happy to share with you that my family has been restored.

I went through the Victory Program, and that was truly a blessing. I have given my heart to God, and he has blessed me enough for the rest of my life.

I have graduated from the Victory Program and I’m employed at Costco in Durham as a deli associate. I thank God every single day for what he has done for me. My life has been transformed in a miraculous way.

Victory Graduate, Currently Employed at the Durham Fire Marshal’s Office

Because Dr. and Mrs. Mills listened to God and cared enough to “lend a helping hand”, people like me are able to once again get their lives back. I now have a great job working for the Fire Marshall’s Office and I have moved out of the Mission and I own my own home in the community.
