“As any volunteer will tell you, you go there with the intention of being a blessing to others,” shares Deb. “But you come back being ten times more blessed! Every story they share with us about where they came from, what they are going through, the big and small victories they are experiencing, and the hope they have found as they are fighting to get their lives back on track—these are all really God’s story and it absolutely inspires me.”
Their original songs come out their real-life experiences along the recovery journey. Add in contemporary worship to their set along with mainstream rock and it makes for an energetic crowd anytime they perform at the Mission.
“When we start to play Heart or Janis Joplin, the place goes nuts”, she says. “But then in the same set we will play Revelation Song and Amazing Grace. There is just so much reverence and passion. It becomes an unbelievable worship experience. I get really choked up when I see them raising their hands and singing their hearts out. I am thankful we have such a powerful ministry like Nashville Rescue Mission to help men and women who are struggling, get out of the pit and lay the groundwork so they have another chance at life.”
