Hope is Being Inspired

Mar 8, 2016  |     |   General

These are just a few of the many women whose lives
are being changed by safety, love, and encouragement
at Open Door Mission’s Lydia House.

     I am not usually the one to share my experiences, but what happened last week is so encouraging that I have to share.
     I was meeting with a single woman applying for the Lydia House, and she shared a bit of her story with me as we filled out her application for a room (she was currently staying in our emergency shelter).  She expressed her deep love for Open Door Mission and everything we do for the community.
     This woman talked on and on about how she loves feeling SAFE, LOVED, and ENCOURAGED at the Mission!  Since coming to Open Door Mission, she has made so many awesome friends and has a deep trust in the Lydia House staff.  This is helping her feel like she can get back on her feet again—HOPE is being inspired.
     Let me shout out to the Lydia House staff for creating such a GREAT environment!  Thank you for caring for our guests unconditionally, as Christ would.
