On a Mission to Rescue
Have you ever been so cold your fingers started to burn? Perhaps you’ve experienced that after playing in the snow. Not to worry, you can always put on a bigger coat, add a hat, gloves and scarf or go back inside your warm house. But what if you are homeless and there is no coat or home to go back in to? What if being cold was just something you had to endure?
For those living on the streets of Nashville, this is a reality. Yet, with your help, when the temperature drops below 36 degrees, the Mission’s “Cold Patrol” seeks out those walking the streets, warning them of the dangers of staying out in the cold.
“We want to help these vulnerable men, women and children. We offer them a ride to the Mission, where they will not only receive food, clothing and shelter, but we also want to offer them hope for a better tomorrow.” –Ed Grimes, Director of Guest Ministries
Thanks to you, the “Cold Patrol” is a vital part of the Mission’s ministry with a solid record of rescuing hungry and hurting people from extreme weather. Each person who survives the night is given another chance to experience salvation—one more day to know God’s grace.
