It seems that the older I
get, the faster time seems to pass! I can hardly believe that summer is
basically over and we are coming into fall! I know summer is pretty much over
because this month we celebrate “Labor Day.” Depending on when you are reading
this, we are getting ready to celebrate Labor Day with our 9th
Annual Labor Day FREE BBQ Fundraiser or we have just finished celebrating it!
As we begin to think about
closing out another season, my mind goes to the people we have been able to
impact. I think with excitement back to May, when we had a graduation ceremony
for five men who have made major, positive, changes in their lives that will
not only impact their lives here, but their eternity! I also think of those who
came to us but were unable or unwilling to make the changes necessary to have
their lives changed and left in the same condition they arrived in.
What all of these folks have
in common is that they were provided with an opportunity to improve their
lives. That opportunity is provided by your partnership with the Union Gospel
Mission! Your support allows us to provide food, shelter, and an opportunity
As you continue to give to
the Union Gospel Mission, we will continue "Meeting
Needs, Making Change, and Magnifying Christ!"
