To Whom It May Concern
I’m sharing this now before my nerves change my mind. Many have seen my constant struggle firsthand. The fact that a major slip and fall turned my life completely upside down. Leaving me with permanent nerve damage throughout my lower body. This has totally exposed my humanity. It’s made me feel very low and less of a man the past 4 years.
Now, we all know that we can’t control everything that happens to us. All we can do is determine our response. For me, I had to let my walls completely down. I had to acknowledge my fears as I walk by faith. I’ve had to admit my anxiety has been off the chain on many occasions. There’s no denying that I’m still trying to swallow my new normal of always feeling broken.
Here’s the part I need you to know. Six years ago, God led me to start Refuge Church of Walterboro. A place where anyone can truly be met where they are, loved where they are and never leave the same. Countless souls have experienced this mission for themselves. I’ve always enjoyed being a part of this mission for others.
Little did I know that I would need this same family of believers. People who choose to love me despite my brokenness. People that grant me unlimited grace and choose to love me in my darkest times. Little did I know I would need a genuine place of “Refuge” for myself and family. I know I would not be where I am without this church family in my life.
So let me tell you this from firsthand experience. If you find yourself in a tough, indescribable season. And, you represent the seventy five percent that don’t attend church regularly. Consider yourself invited and please come visit Refuge Church. You are guaranteed to feel much love and leave encouraged. You are certain to find a place of grace and incredible love. Trust me, I would know because my life has been deeply touched even after I let them see how much I struggle.
