In the month of January we would like to honor the most important driver at the Rescue Mission, Marty Razo. Marty is one of the most positive and easily likable people you will meet. Marty holds the important tasks of driving our vehicles for large donation pick-ups, transporting our kids to their respective schools and getting our residents to events, important meetings, appointment and interviews. Marty has a huge heart and is passionate about his faith. We are extremely lucky to have him on our staff and get to do ministry alongside this man of God. Congratulations Marty!

How did you hear about the job opportunity at the mission? I had my commercial license for a while. I was having problems finding a job as a commercial driver, because no one wants to hire someone with no experience.
I saw the job opening ad on craigslist’s web site and I replied to it. I remembered that Jodie told me that I was the only one within 45 people that filled out the faith statement on the application, and after prayer I became a part of the OCRM team….. I Praise God for that!
What do you love most about your job? T I’m in a place where I could freely speak and express myself of my Lord.
What is the hardest part of your job? I see the students as my friends and of course as my brothers in Christ. So, when I see them fail, I take that mistake as mine also. Their pain is my pain, and their cheer is my cheer.
How have you grown since coming to the mission? I have learned to serve God’s people.
Church? Apostolic Assembly
Favorite Verse? Proverbs 14:26 New King James Version
