Pastor Miller (pictured here), his wife Meleny, and their two sons lived in the home for 22 years. It was the longest place they had called "home" but their time there was not without its challenges.
Meleny developed unexplained difficulty walking after just a year in the home. In an exploratory surgery, doctors found a benign tumor that encapsulated her spine. The tumor was removed, but it left her with no feeling below her shoulder.
Bound to a wheelchair, the church came alongside to help the family. Despite Meleny's limited mobility, she poured into the lives of the women who brought food and helped with her rehab. The home became a place of rest and restoration and we look forward to it serving survivors in the same way.
