Rescued! is the third in a series of booklets produced by Misfits Ministries – reaching the lost, the least, the lonely and the lepers. The author explains how he was Rescued, Released, Redeemed and Restored – and it all started with Repentance. Shame is a powerful and toxic feeling – but it doesn’t have to affect your life forever.
