The Misconception of Homelessness

Every day is a new day at Open Door Mission. I never tire of visiting with our supporters, telling the Open Door Mission story or seeing God work right before me…..I just have to share about this visiting group.
Wow, the PEO ladies group from Treynor, IA. was amazed from start to finish as they arrived on the Open Door Mission Campus at 6 p.m., this evening.
They could not believe how clean the facilities were or how friendly the homeless were to them…blown away by the homeless holding doors open for them, saying, “welcome.”
Many of them were in tears about their inaccurate perception of the homeless and shared with the group how much they had learned from our time together. 2 of the ladies shared they would be making substantial year end gifts to Open Door Mission and challenged the others to make HOLIDAY season gifts. I was humbled to see God work in these ladies lives right before my eyes, softening their hearts.
