 Dear Friend of the Mission,

When the Whosoever Gospel Mission was founded in 1892, our founder, William Raws, had no money, no denominational sponsorships, no corporate backing, no foundation grants, and very little church support.  His journals indicate that some days the Mission’s cupboards were bare – he had no food for the evening meal.  And so he prayed.  Our records indicate that we never missed a meal – our men were always fed – 3 meals a day, 365 days a year.  God always gave us our daily bread!  Thankfully, 124 years later, our cupboards are not bare.  We serve three hearty and plentiful meals each day.  We even have a snack table with fresh fruit, and right now, with a big bowl of Sweetzels spiced wafers (someone donated 15 plus cases of these delicious cookies – they are my favorite cookie!).  However, we still ask the Lord to give us our daily bread.  We know that God is the giver of all good gifts, and that He promises to provide for us.  And so we expectantly and thankfully look to the Lord for His provision.  He never fails us – our men have never gone hungry.  And our food is consistently good, plentiful and nutritious.

You are a big part of how God gives us our daily bread.  Your kind and generous financial gifts and your non-cash donations of food and other items give us the life-giving resources we need to provide our men with their basic needs as well as everything else they need to achieve a fulfilling life, a lifestyle of recovery from addiction, restored family relationships, a good job, a place of their own they can call home, and long-term success as productive, contributing members of society.  Thank you for making a huge difference for good in the lives of our men.

Enjoying the goodness of God,

Bob signature
