One of the most beautiful things about working in urban ministry is watching as people become contributing members of society again. This is actually a primary meaning of the word "justice" in the Bible. It means restoring people back to their most productive capacities. And we get to see this consistently at Open Door Ministries. Here's a glimpse of what we're talking about.

Silvia (pictured above to the right) came through our Esther House program, graduated, and is now very involved in Open Door Fellowship. This summer she took the job as Family Room Assistant and spends her time pouring into people's lives in the Family Room and teaching art classes to people in the ODM community.

Melanie came to Esther House earlier this year and has been growing leaps and bounds in her time here. She completed the Open Door to Success job training program and got a job working at Street2Life Print Shop and also doing some janitorial work around Open Door. We're excited to see what the future holds for Melanie.

Phyllis came to Chayah House in 2016 and now works as Family Room Assistant every afternoon. She has developed relationships with so many of our homeless guests and is flourishing as she works towards finding healing in her life and the lives of the people she touches on a day-to-day basis.

Carina came to the Open Door Learning Center as a 5-year-old and is now one year away from graduating from college! She is spending this summer working as an Urban Immersion intern and hosting our summer teams that come to learn and serve in Denver.

We could go on and on with these life-changing stories. Sean now works as the LightHouse cook. Ishamina and Elaine work in the Learning Center. Lena works as Family Room Assistant. Mike works as our Maintenance Technician. Jon is our Business Assistant. David works at Street2Life. Cheryl works as the Chayah House Assistant Director. It is incredible to watch as people don't just find recovery - they flourish in the new life that God has for them!
