I would never have imagined in our fifteen years of ministry, we would be canceling our annual banquet for a second consecutive year. Historically, this banquet is crucial to raising much-needed funds that help us provide Gospel-powered life transformation to our hurting neighbors during the summer months when donations are low.
We know this pandemic is producing long-lasting effects on the working poor in our communities as we experience increases in homelessness, addiction, and food insecurity as well as hopelessness. But here at Neighbors of Hope, we work diligently to help our guests overcome the desperation and destitution they may be experiencing during these days of uncertainty. Recently, Miss K, a graduate of our Women’s Ministry program had this to say of her experience with us,
“I have learned many things while at the ministry, such as self-love, protecting what I believe, and knowing that I can do what I propose without forgetting that God is in me. He puts angels in our lives and NOH has given me that. The people who work here have love and patience, they fully support us in our rehabilitation, and I am not talking about alcohol or drugs, my story is of abuse and violence. They teach us and prepare us for recovery with God’s guidance to be able to continue safely on our journey.”
As summer approaches and without our annual banquet, we NEED YOU to HELP us continue to provide these vital services to those in need. A gift as small as $20 will provide a week’s worth of meals for one of our guests and help them experience the love and care of God as Miss K has. Please help us maintain these services in Lenawee County and support this ministry by giving today. You too can be a Neighbor of Hope today! Thank you and God bless.
In-Service to Christ,
Pastor Steven Palmer
