Dear Friend of the Mission,
Earlier this summer my wife Marcia and I looked forward with eager anticipation to a 10 day visit from our three precious granddaughters who live in California (we also looked forward to their parents, our son and daughter-in-law, visiting! ). The joy and excitement of picking up our loved ones at the airport was wonderful beyond words. Spending time with our granddaughters was even better than what we anticipated. It was 10 of the best days of our lives (and we’ve been around for a few years!).
Sadly, however, when you are homeless, you really don’t have much to look forward to. The future holds little promise for the homeless men who come to the Mission, and the only foreseeable change they envision is for the worse. Thankfully, by God’s grace and through your generous support, the Whosoever Gospel Mission is a place of hope and joyful anticipation. When a homeless man comes to the Mission, he has an abundance of good things to look forward to, and as he continues to move forward with his life, this abundance of good things grows even bigger. We can honestly tell our men that by God’s grace, each day can be better than the day before.
Through your kind support, the Mission is an oasis of rest and refreshment, a place of hope and change for the better, and best of all, an inviting home where our men experience firsthand the love and grace of the Lord. Thank you for your part in helping to make all of these good things happen.
Summer is usually a down time for cash donations to the Mission, and it is also a slow time for our thrift stores. Please consider shopping in our two thrift stores as a way to help the Mission. Please also consider supporting the Mission through a kind and generous financial gift before summer ends. We want to continue to be a beacon of hope to whosoever comes to us for help.
Working together with you,
Robert A. Emberger, D.Min.
