Meet Steve.  He and his wife had been happily married for 16 years and attended church regularly.  Then his wife had a massive fatal heart attack in her sleep and his world changed forever.  Steve was mad at God. He lost his faith, quit going to church and began, as he calls it, "running with the devil." He turned to drugs and alcohol and ended up losing everything he ever had. He even wound up in jail. He had hit rock bottom.  After his release from jail, Steve had been sleeping in a tent for almost a month when someone told him about Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry.  When he came for food, he was given the opportunity to meet with a prayer counselor, and Steve met Bro. Leonard Diebold, the JSFM Ministry Director, for the first time. Steve said he was so impressed with Bro. Leonard because he talked to him like a man, understanding Steve's situation and not trying to force his faith on Steve. They talked for a couple of hours and Steve left with a lighter heart. He could hardly wait for the next month's food distribution so that he could meet with Bro. Leonard again, even waiting in a longer line just to pray with him.  Steve started attending church again and found not only peace, but a family here with Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry as well.  It has been almost six years since Steve first came to JSFM. He now has a great life, a beautiful wife, home and friends. "Life is good now," Steve says with a smile.  We are very thankful to have Steve as part of our JSFM family as a regular volunteer. He is a blessing!
