A small but growing church ministry in Mentor surprised a homeless veteran with a minivan on Memorial Day, after housing his family for the last few months.
Royal Johnson, an Army veteran, and his wife have been living at the Christ Kingdom Ministries in Mentor since March, after Bishop M. L. Rodgers met the couple in Georgia and decided to take them in.
“I’m a veteran myself, that’s what we do,” Rodgers said.
The ministry has been housing, feeding, and helping the Johnson family get back on their feet the last few months. They have since become gainfully employed and able to secure their own housing in East Cleveland.
Monday, the couple was packing up their belongings to move and were surprised with the keys to a 2004 Mercury minivan, gifted by the church with the help of Ganley. Gift cards donated by Walmart and an engraved Bible were also presented.
