Transformation at the Lydia House

May 21, 2015  |     |   General

     I have worked at Open Door Mission for almost three years, but only in the past few months have I gotten the opportunity to work in the Lydia House.  A personal joy is being a vessel used to help meet people’s practical needs of food, clothing, and shelter.  From that, spiritual needs can also be met.
     It is exciting to see people come in off the streets and begin to transform before my very eyes.  It starts with a meal and a hot shower, and continues through conversations with staff who passionately love Jesus and can show His love to them.  Seeing God transform a person’s life is a special thing to be a part of.  
     I am grateful to all the supporters who help make Open Door Mission a place where both people’s physical and spiritual needs can be met.  I am grateful for the donors who give sacrificially so that homeless men, women, and children can receive fresh socks, toiletry items, and even a toothbrush.  These seemingly small items are huge to those who do not have them.
