Mike’s Story

Mike Missick was a special guest at the Lighthouse Mission as he worked to break free of the cycle of homelessness.

It is with heavy hearts that we share Mike passed away earlier this year. As a member of our Ascent Program, Mike had been working toward healing and a transformed life. A couple of months before he passed away, he reflected on his time with the Mission…

I thank the Lord for washing my life through regeneration and renewing me with His Holy Spirit. He brought me through several years of darkness and persecution from the enemy, which completely disabled me.  I would also like to thank all the donors and the awesome Christian staff who work so hard to help make these lifesaving opportunities possible, not only for myself but for other individuals living and renewing their lives here.

Mike’s greatest pleasure:
“Getting to see other men begin new lives in the Lord.”

Mike’s favorite discipline:
“To wait on the Lord.”

Mike’s favorite truth:
“Knowing I can accomplish nothing outside of Christ and His love.”

Mike’s greatest hope:
“To become worthy enough to share God’s Word completely enough to help grow His Kingdom.”

The Mission was honored to hold a memorial service for Mike.

From the bottom of Mike’s heart…
“Thank you to the Lighthouse Mission for a warm safe place to grow and learn while enjoying good food, love, mentoring, and support that I so desperately needed. I shudder to think where I would be without the lifesaving help this Mission provides, so thank you with all my heart.”

Thank you for making Mike’s testimony and so many others possible through the Lighthouse Mission. Today, thanks in part to you, Mike is enjoying his reward: eternity with Jesus!
