Community First! Village – Day 1

Today was a half-day at Community First Village filled with a constant light rain the entire day.  We met our guide for the week, Will, who is a resident of Community First and credits Alan Graham, the founder of Mobile Loaves & Fishes for “saving his life”.  Will is 5 years sober from a heroin addiction and now has a sustainable job working at Community First and pays all his bills for his home on the property.  It was very interesting hearing his story and how God used the Graham family, and others, to take care of Will and get him to where he is today.  We look forward to working with him this week.
