I am a new hire here at Open Door Mission. I did streets of Omaha for the first time recently. WOW! My life was changed. I love being able to serve those in need. The streets of Omaha is generally two vans full of people preparing sack lunches and serving them to the homeless and needy people in the community. the day I helped we prepared 1,375 sack lunches. I remembered a few things specifically. First there was a little elderly lady who we gave 5 sandwiches to. She told me she had just gotten out of the hospital. I asked her if i could pray with her asking the Lord for strength. We prayed together, could see the light of Christ in her. I hugged her and I said that I will continue to pray for her. Something else that I will never forget,  I saw children in need sharing their sack lunch with other kids in the neighborhood who were in need of food. It was so touching. The little boy did not know that the other children he was with would be getting lunches too.

I LOVE my job. The Open Door Mission does wonderful things for those in need.
