From our President:
"I have held gold in my hands, I have held diamonds in my hands, I have even held some powerful world leader’s hands while shaking hands, but in my humble opinion, nothing compares to the powerful meaning of passing these graduation certificates into the hands of these extraordinary men and women who have overcome during their time here at the Orange County Rescue Mission (Village of Hope).
It was an honor to share this stage with good friend, Costa Mesa Mayor, Jim Righeimer and our valedictorian Gary and his daughters.
I treasure these celebrations- congratulations OCRM Spring class of 2014!”

This is Holy Week, the powerful remembrance and reflection of the events leading up to the powerful day that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead on Easter morning. I wanted to share this point of view by Bob Shank, from The Masters Program, as…
