Dry Bones Live : A story of reclamation and grace passed down and paid forward

David Barnett found himself in need of new work after vocational training he received in the Navy became obsolete. Over the next few years he struggled with drug addiction and ended up homeless and hopeless in Miami, Florida. David wrestled with recovery over the years, but through The Salvation Army’s Haven program for Veteran’s, he was able to turn over the battle to the Lord. He took what he learned from his own trials and began to practice the call of 1 Peter, “use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” Mr. Barnett created the DBL Vocational Training Program to help students earn an EPA Certification for HVAC Systems. Seeing the value of his course, The Salvation Army Stillman Sawyer Family Service Center opened its doors to the program. Now, Mr. Barnett uses his technical skills to help pull others from the muck and mire that he himself waded through for so many years of his own life.
