Alison met with Jim Cardle, a long-time CES advocate. Alison was rejoicing because of the community of CES and the prayers and food she received at CES. She was thrilled with the help of the food shelf and service from people like Jim who had been there for her as she was been on the road to recovery, staying free from addiction for the last 18 months.

After Alison shared about her victories, she asked that these words of hope be shared with others, “Tell everyone that because Jesus is there for us, we can have success. Don’t give up. And, thank you CES for supplying my need for food and for being there for me, encouraging me on my road to recovery.”
