The Lighthouse Goes Viral!

Facebook post receives thousands of hits

We had an unexpected publicity boost last week when one of our Facebook posts went viral!  Well…  for an organisation of our size, it at least felt ‘viral’…

On Monday 28th September we posted a comparison photo of our good friend, Izzy, who used to attend our Women’s Drop-in group every Wednesday.  The before and after faces were barely comparable as they illustrated incredible, holistic restoration in Izzy’s life.

After years of addiction, alcoholism and abuse, Izzy bravely embarked on a journey of rehabilitation when she entered into the Teen Challenge Benaiah facility near Mintlaw in January 2015.  Nine months later, Izzy attended our monthly TNT service on Sunday 27th September to share how God has transformed her life from a mere existence to a full and abundant life.  In celebration of this, we posted a comparison photo – the first from the day she said goodbye to her friends at the Drop-in and travelled north to the centre, and the second taken at TNT – and we were completely bowled over by the response!

Thanks to you, the post has been liked, commented on, and shared hundreds of times over, resulting in over 58,000 people seeing it!  We just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who continues to support us and help spread the word as we endeavour to be a resource to the community of Tillydrone.
