Our staff gathers every day (except Sunday) at 8:45 a.m. to pray and thank God for our men, for one another, and for you. For our men, we pray for their health, for a job, for victory over addiction, that they would experience hope, that they would not give up, for their relationship with the Lord, for their relationship with their family, and for the overwhelming challenges they face. Our staff also prays for each other. Our ministry is a tough one, and we need the Lord’s grace, mercy and love to fill us so we in turn can day-in and day-out share God’s love with our men. We also pray for our own loved ones and struggles. We also pray for you. A good number of you have included a prayer request with your gift. While praying, we thank the Lord for your faithful support. Your financial support as well as your non-financial support (gifts of food, laundry detergent, pillows, new underwear, donations of items for our thrift stores, etc.) give us the resources we need to minister God’s love in word and deed to the broken and hurting homeless men who come to the Mission desperately seeking help. Our time of prayer in the morning centers our thoughts and hearts on the Lord and His goodness, and this in turn gives us what we need to minister God’s compassionate love to our men without wavering every day.
Thank you for your faithful support. As we enter the fall season and quickly move toward the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, I want to invite you to support the Whosoever Gospel Mission in a number of ways. As you know, we always need money, and you are very generous in meeting this need. But please see our needs list for additional ways that you can help us this fall. In addition, if you purchase items on Amazon.com, you can register with AmazonSmile (which is run by Amazon) and designate the Whosoever Gospel Mission to receive a percentage of all of the eligible purchases you make on AmazonSmile. You can search for the Mission on AmazonSmile, or you can type in the following link and follow the prompts:
You purchase items on AmazonSmile the same way you do on regular Amazon.com. The prices are the same, the only difference is that you will also be supporting the Mission. The 0.5% of all eligible purchases that Amazon donates may not seem like much, but it does add up, and we currently receive a few hundred dollars a year from Amazon through AmazonSmile.
With much gratitude,
Robert A. Emberger, D.Min.
