My Favorite Mission Memory

Nov 20, 2015  |     |   General

     Open Door Mission has been celebrating our birthday during the whole month of November.  From Open Door Mission Day on November 1, to an all-staff purple out, to last night’s 60 Years of Blessings A Diamond in the Rough Gala, it has been quite the celebration!
     It is amazing to know that God has worked through Open Door Mission for 60 years, and that He is not finished!  More is to come!  During my time serving at the Mission, I’ve had many life-changing experiences from hearing guests’ stories, seeing God always provide, and interacting with wonderful staff.
     One of my many favorite Open Door Mission memories was watching Candace “accidentally” start bulldozing the old Men’s Center.  I know Candace’s favorite day in the fall of 1997, when Open Door Mission held our first Graduation ceremony for women and families with children!
     Whether you’ve been a friend of the Mission for decades or a few weeks, please take time to reflect on your favorite memory.  And please share it!  Can’t wait for what’s to come.
