Roy grew up in the Fraser Valley as a member of The Port Douglas Band. He is currently a Resident at the Mission.
“I started drinking at 18 and kinda kept a lid on it, but it eventually caused the loss of jobs, and I got into trouble with the law (causing a disturbance, resisting arrest…) I lost rights to see my kids and was spiralling down.
One day whilst in solitary confinement I finally cried out to God. HELP ME! That same day my lawyer came in…’I can get you out but you have to take the last bed in a Mission.’ My prayer was answered!
It’s been 10 months without drink or drugs and I have been through a total transformation. I now pray tons and REALLY know the Lord is with me and will lead me on.”
