Ministry seeks donations for auction

Josh Furr checked into the facility in 2011 for alcohol addiction, which worsened following the death of his three nieces who were killed in a traffic incident, he said.

"I was to the point where I was suicidal," Furr said.

A family physician and his sister referred him to Exodos.

Now, Furr — who is going through his second stint of recovery at the facility — also ministers to men there, taking them to several locations where they participate in various projects.

"We help the elderly and those who are unable to do things around their house," he said, adding that lawn care and installing flooring are among their frequent projects.

They also are responsible for the landscaping at Woodlawn Baptist Church.

Furr said he plans to help each resident conquer addiction through sharing his experience and the word of God.
