Good Samaritans

Luke 10: 33-37 

​- 

But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.  The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

​  

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

​  

The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

​  

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

This Biblical parable is often what I think of concerning Open Door Mission.  Where many lay hopeless and invisible to our society, Open Door Mission gives refuge. It is here that healing and restored hope takes place every day.  This only made possible by Good Samaritans here and across this land.
​  

 Through Volunteering, donations, and being an advocate hope is restored. Thank you for being merciful and generous to our mission and vision at the Open Door Mission. YOU are our Good Samaritans and we thank you.
