I appreciate the work Wheeler Mission does in trying to help the homeless and addicted. It is hard work. Yet it was sad to read that 17 persons (7 in the facility, 10 outside of it, but all in the program) recently used spice/Flakka/bath salts and overdosed. I will have more to say about it later but it is enormously sad to read when you think this is a residential facility designed to keep the folks inside away from drugs, but the human heart’s desire and conniving to figure out a way to obtain its pursuits is powerful.
Pray for the persons Wheeler Mission serves as well as its staff and the law enforcement persons who serve our community so diligently!
