I guess that I should introduce myself. My name is Larry Scarborough, I am 48 years old. I came to the mission on June the 3rd of 2000 when I really didn’t have anywhere else to go. I lost my apartment about two weeks before I showed up here after moving around and staying with friends for two weeks. That never works out, especially when I wasn’t able to work because my back was injured from years gone by and truck driving for 11 years.

The A.R.M. has really made me understand that there is more to life than just what we see here as we pass through in only a blink of an eye. The Lord says a 1,000 years are as a day, and a day is as a 1,000 years! Yes, brothers and sisters, we are all going to live forever, the only question is where are we going to spend it. Jesus says: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. I believe that with all my heart. Read it yourself (John 14:6).

A.R.M. has made me come to realize that this world the almighty God made for us is not here for our pleasure to do as we want, but to help the so many other poor souls that are so in need for our support. The Mission has gotten me off alcohol and other drugs that I surely didn’t need to be on.

I would truly like to thank Bro. Larry Hample for his spiritual guidance over the past (five) years that I’ve had the pleasure of residing here with the mission!!

Yours in Christ!!
