Real People

Ginny, Tennessee  – Ginny lost her husband Jeff to suicide in 2011. We had the opportunity to meet with her and for several months, help Ginny and her children recover from that tragedy.

Mr. Michaels, if I would have not spoken with you on the 11th of January, I am not sure which road I have may taken with my grief. To know that someone cared about a complete stranger and could look at me with compassion in his eyes and feel the need to help me and my family gave me Hope…

Paul, Tennessee My wife had ordered me to leave. I could see no resolve, no future, no hope.. I decided to take my life and drove seventy miles to a secluded road and parked my car at a peaceful overlook, cried, and began the process of ending my life. I looked in the rear view mirror and saw a parked U.S. Park Ranger watching me and I couldn’t do it.  He didn’t know what I was doing, but God’s intervened and saved my life. A couple days later God sent another individual – through Facebook where I found  Serve & Protect’s Robert Michaels and made contact. Through his testimony and example I came to realize Serve & Protect helps individuals just like me find the hope I was seeking.  It has been a blessing to know I have this avenue for help.
