Homeless ill man writes "help" on note pad, now has home & community for final days
Once-homeless man finds his life resurrected
As he nears death, he feels more alive than he ever did


----------------------

Goslins road to resurrection began with one word, written on a note pad.
Help.

It was May 2010, and Goslin was sleeping at the Nashville Rescue Mission at night and spending his days rolling his wheelchair around downtown. Things were not going well.

Goslin had recently moved to Nashville from Atlanta, and in the process, his disability check from Social Security was suspended. His debit card from his bank in Atlanta was not working. A tumor in the back of his head was robbing him of his ability to speak. He communicated by writing notes on a pad.
