Dear Friend of the Mission,
Please check out this heart-warming collection of photos filled with laughter, smiles, good food, toys and gifts from our 2016 Christmas celebration at the Whosoever Gospel Mission. Your financial gifts, gifts of new toys for the children and grandchildren of our men, gifts for our men and all sorts of other wonderful kindnesses made Christmas 2016 an amazing time at the Mission. Thank you for making Christmas for our men (and their kids and grandkids!) a time of celebration and joy rather than a sad time filled with crushing loneliness, heartache, regrets and hopelessness. Our men and their families join with me in thanking you.
I also want to thank you for your kind and generous support throughout 2016. You have given us food, good used items for our thrift stores, laundry detergent, personal care items, office supplies, over-the-counter medicines, paper products, cleaning supplies, trash bags, new underwear and socks, pillows, good used grocery bags for our thrift stores and a host of other blessings. You have supported us financially through generous cash gifts, employee giving programs such as the United Way and the Combined Federal Campaign, gifts of stock, donor advised fund grants, employer matching gift programs, and gift cards to stores we shop at for the Mission. I wish I could thank you all individually and in person. Your support helped us to provide life-giving, life-changing and life-saving help to our men. The Mission is ultimately not about programs or buildings, but it is about loving broken and hurting homeless men with the love of Christ, giving them a hand-up and not just a handout, giving them a solid hope that changes their lives both now and forever. The positive changes that take place in just one of our men will touch and impact for good the lives of hundreds of other people – perhaps even your life. Keep on investing in our men – your support will pay dividends for years to come.
With heartfelt thanks,
Robert A. Emberger, D.Min.
