Investing in what matters...

Have you ever humbled yourself to the point of saying, "Lord, whatever You ask, I will do"? While every position at the Mission is an opportunity to live out the message on our "Jesus Saves" logo, many of the tasks associated with the ministry are humble ones. Recently, we learned of the unexpected passing of a former "teammate" who had served in food services, and I was sharply reminded that we have a limited amount of time on this earth. We can choose how we invest that time. For those of our staff who say, "I will happily invest time in serving meals and mopping floors because that investment results in women, children, and men receiving not only physical but also spiritual bread," thank you. For those who day-in and day-out do the mundane for the chance of sharing the eternal, thank you. Our guests come to us safe in the knowledge that today they will find shelter and food ready and waiting for them. That happens because we serve. And we can serve because of your support, fellow rescuers. Thank you. #grateful #teamrescue
