Here we are on the cusp of Christmas and another New Year and we are still unable to open the new facility for our Men’s Ministry program. We had hoped we would be able to welcome men experiencing homelessness before these holidays and definitely before the winter temperatures really begin to drop. But unfortunately, due to the addition of an unforeseen requirement to obtain our occupancy permit, and the supply chain delays accompanying its completion, we are now looking at sometime in February before we can legally open.
Although this is truly disappointing to us all, I am confident about two things. One, this is ultimately God’s ministry and because we can recall the countless times God has shown up and assured us of that fact, we are steadfast in our faith that this will indeed come to fruition. Secondly, nearly every space in the facility is furnished and ready to receive guests as soon as we obtain our certificate of occupancy. All we need at this point are a few items on our ‘wish list’ (linked below) that you can help us acquire and ensure our readiness to open and help transform men’s lives.
So, I thank you for your ongoing support and ask that you continue to pray for this ministry and help with our wish list as you are able.
God bless you.
