“A special thank you to your group for being an excellent resource and encouragement during this time.”
“Giving has not declined over our monthly average. Received a significant gift unsolicited.”
“We are praying more as Administrator…Daily. We meet at 9 AM M-F and we really pray. Not a bad plan.”
“Pray for seniors, many of which are rightly isolated and some that are lonely. Thanks for what you are doing!”
“Thankful that no cases of COVID-19 in any of our shelter guests or staff in the last 5 weeks. This is one of the things that I have been able to share with our donors in phone calls, emails and handwritten notes and it so resonates with them. Many say that has been my prayer. The first time donors I have spoken with say they gave because we are there for the homeless at this time and plan to continue – which is a praise, too. With some donors working from home, I have connected with them and they are open to talking and sharing their feelings and fears. Many times, a scripture comes to my heart of what they shared & have given it to them. And then, praying with them before ending our call. For me, Psalm 91 had been my ‘refuge and my fortress’ scripture for comfort, strength and peace for 30 years and especially my 9-1-1 scripture at this COVID-19 time,”
“I am reminded of the song “Only King Forever” during this time-one of the lines is, Kingdoms once strong now shaken, we trust the name of Jesus.”
“He continues to Provide!”
(Ephesians 3:20) 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
“Value loss of appreciated assets is our major concern.”
