The past couple of weeks have been amazing here! I have seen some miraculous changes in some of the men who are in our program. I just want to take a moment and tell you a little about them. Two of our men have experienced setbacks and yet have come out of those situations with a true desire to make the necessary changes. One of these men is fighting for a relationship with his children and the other is fighting to get his life back. Another man came in just looking for shelter… and instead found a life-changing relationship with Christ!
You see, our clients aren’t perfect. As a matter of fact, if we had a “perfect” client come in, I wouldn’t accept them. We are looking for people who have a need and a desire to change their lives to get their needs met. Yes, we do provide shelter, food, and basic personal supplies; but those are just a means to an end. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for our clients to have a hope for the future!
Your financial partnership with the Union Gospel Mission makes this possible. Your gift provides physical benefits, but even more importantly, it provides unfathomable opportunity for someone’s life to be impacted both here and now, and for eternity! Your support allows us to continue “Meeting Needs, Making Change, and Magnifying Christ!”
Serving Christ and the Community,
Rev. Jon Rector, Executive Director
