Your donated Gifts Making a Difference

Hi my name is Judy Collins and I work at the Timberlake Outreach Center of the Open Door Mission. I would like to share with you the joy and privilege I have to serve our clients and to pray with them. Each morning I meet with co-workers to pray for our mission, staff, donors and volunteers. We ask the Lord to meet the needs of our clients and bring encouragement and hope back into their lives. Through the years I have been amazed to see how God has met those needs though people like you.

The other day a man was grateful because we were able to give him a crib for his baby. A mother was excited that she could finely feed her children at the kitchen table she received. Can you imagine the thrill of the mother of five who received a washer and dryer and will no longer need to wash her kid’s clothes in the bath tub or have to take her washing over to a family member’s home.

Because of your gifts many of our clients have been able to furnish their homes, cloth their families, diaper their babies and have a bed to lay their tired bodies on at night. Thank you for your kindness for without you we would not be able to serve our community the way we do.
Our staff also has the privilege of praying for each client. I have seen God work in some of our client’s lives to soften their hearts, bring hope for their future, provide for their needs and change their lives. Every now and then some will come back to tell us how God answered their prayers. It blesses our hearts as I hope it blesses yours. We can’t do this ministry without you, so thank you for your kindness and gifts to those in need.

Joyfully serving Jesus,

Judy Collins, Open Door Mission Assistant Director of the Timberlake Outreach Center
