Faithful Steward

August 21, 2012  |     |   General

Open Door Mission is blessed to have very faithful donors and volunteers. I have been blessed to become friends with a donor that always answers my call for donations. Pat has a special love for children, especially those in need. She shops all year looking for bargains so that the children at Lydia House will have new clothes, underwear, shoes and coats and even toys at Christmas. Her love of children and generosity has blessed so many at Open Door Mission the past 4 years I have known her.

Recently I went to pick-up “some of the donations” she had for Lydia House. I drove my compact Camry to get them. I should have known better. I should have gotten a van!  As the picture testifies there were a lot of clothes and coats to bless the children…my car was stuffed full, barely room for a driver. What I really admire about Pat is she never pays full price, often getting the clothes and coats for 80-90% off. I and Open Door Mission are thankful for Pat and her stewardship, love of children and faithfulness to the children we serve.

If you want to find out how you can make a difference right here in our community please call me 402-422-1111 ext 1554. I would love to get to know you and help you make a difference in the lives of others.
