`It was obvious that May had been drinking heavily and she might also have taken tranquillisers. She was bawling and shouting, cursing and swearing. Her house was in utter chaos. It was a very difficult situation altogether, particularly as she was also slashing herself. May was a woman going nowhere, a poor soul lost in the world. `One night two people came to speak at a meeting in my church. I didn't recognise either of them. One of the speakers pointed at me and said, "Doctor, you will be able to confirm all that I'm saying." When she saw my incomprehension, she said, "I'm May Nicholson. Don't you remember me?" I was gob-smacked! When I knew her previously she was a deeply depressed alcohol addict with no hope and her life going nowhere. Now May was completely and utterly different.' Retired doctor, Paisley, Scotland `Anyone who has lived with drug addicts and alcoholics knows how elusive hope is. It runs through your fingers like fine sand, until there's nothing left but cynicism and despair. But May Nicholson found a different sort of hope - rather, it found her! Her encounter with Jesus Christ literally "saved" her life, and set in motion what one of her colleagues calls "a friendly steamroller" - clearing paths of hope not just for herself but for dozens and dozens of others too.' John Nicholls, London City Mission `May has the same love for the poorest of the poor and the richest of the rich. She is at home with lords and ladies and with the lowly and loneliest. Living out God's love with and among the poor, she reflects Jesus who, "though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor that we might be made rich".' Chuck Wright
