Open Door Mission Makes History

I have been at Open Door Mission since 2000. When I first came to the mission as an intern I really did not belive that I would be here in the Midwest long term. 11 years later and I am still here. People ask me all the time when they hear that I am from Eastern Canada, why do you live here and not back on the East Coast.

It is simple… God called me to come and minster to the poor and needy. He says in Matthew 25

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me”

This is what the Open Door Mission does everyday. The building that came down today has seen so many men, women, and children’s lives changed. It is very exciting to see what God is doing and how HE is using the Open Door Mission to change lives.

The new Garland Thompson Men’s Center will be over 60,000 square feet of living space for single men. I can not wait to see what God has insotre for single men that come to the Open Door Mission for help.

Thank you for being apart of this great ministry to the hungry and homeless men, women, and children in the Heartland.
