July 2020 Monthly Update!
2020 is half over and what a year it has been so far! This year has been full of negativity it seems, but let me share some positivity with you. As a nation, this month we celebrate Freedom, Liberty, and Independence. I want to tell you of some personal examples of Freedom, Liberty, and Independence that our clients are experiencing!
Let me tell you about “Bill”, who came to the Union Gospel Mission in July of last year. “Bill” was homeless, suffering from some mental health issues, and estranged from his family. Today, “Bill” is working two jobs, just got a new (used) vehicle, is faithful to Church, and is rebuilding his family relationships.
I could also tell you about “Bob”, who came back to us in August of last year. “Bob” had been with the Union Gospel Mission several years ago and due to being taken advantage of (financially) had found himself homeless again. Today, “Bob” is searching for a new place of his own and is rebounding financially, while also re-developing his relationship with Christ!
These are just two of many “success stories” of the Union Gospel Mission this year. Have there been some failures? Of course. Some of our clients have decided that they just were not ready for real “life-change”. But for those who are, we are here; ready, willing, and able to help them!
Your financial support makes it possible for us to provide Freedom! Would you consider a gift to help us continue “Meeting Needs, Making Change, and Magnifying Christ”?
Serving Christ and the Community,
Rev. Jon Rector
