Mail Call!

Mail at Open Door Mission is never predictable, always exciting, and often brings great joy to our hearts.

Here’s a sample of yesterday’s mail call…

“Candace, Like I told you on the phone, I saw your commercial Nov. 20th about needing turkeys for poor people on Thanksgiving, just as I was leaving the house to play Turkey Bingo at my church.

“On my way, I prayed, ‘God, please let me win a turkey tonight. If I win one, I will donate it to Open Door Mission’.

“Well, God let me win…not just one, but TWO! So I got to keep one turkey for myself, and donate one to you!”

Love, Amy (not her real name)

Another letter caught our eye…

“To Staff of Open Door Mission,

“This is a very simple thank you note to all of the staff members at the Mission for saving my life one week ago today.

“It is impossible to express everything I would like to say in a short note, so I hope you all will understand that the depth of my gratitude to all of you goes far deeper than the few words written here.

“With the opportunity that you and God granted me to make changes in my life, I pray that one day I will be able to repay you in some way for your help.

Sincerely, Joe (not his real name)
