We all remember that catchy little tune from our childhood -- it’s one of those songs that once you start singing, it stays in your head for a while.
Recently, there was a beautiful woman, a mom, who wasn’t humming that tune but something quite to the contrary. She was saying,
“Where is my stuff? I’m a Christian, I trusted God, but where is my stuff?”
You see, this woman fell upon hard times. The fact is, not everyone living on or near Skid Row is an alcoholic, drug addict or prostitute. Some have just fallen to the wayside.
As she sat on the curb across from the Mission on 5th and Towne, she looked at her hands and said, “I can’t remember the last time I had my nails painted and my hair done.”
“You’ll never know Dear; how much I love you...”
Mother’s Day is May 12th and on this special day we will bring sunshine to the streets, spread the love of Jesus to all, and share God’s SONshine to the moms and children of Skid Row so they will know how much they are truly loved.
Mother’s Day at the Mission is a day filled with sunshine, smiles and hugs all around! We will serve a delicious meal, then hand out bags filled with things like hygiene kits, brushes, shampoo and conditioner, lotions and other goodies to bless all the moms who come.
This is where you come in! We need your prayers; we need your volunteer help; we need your financial support, and we need you to continue standing with us today to help make this holiday a special one for moms on Skid Row!
My promise to you and to moms, grandmothers and children served on Mother’s Day is this: They will experience the love of Jesus, the ultimate “SONshine,” and be blessed because of all you help us provide!
Thank you for caring and for giving!
