For the homeless and broken that enter the doors of the Nashville Rescue Mission, there are hidden treasures awaiting them. Most people who come to the Mission do so in search of food, clothing and shelter. Because of faithful supporters like you, we are able to meet these most basic needs.
As you’ll read in this month’s newsletter, many will also take advantage of the educational opportunities available to them at the Mission, such as studying for and taking their GED. It is through expanding their education and increasing their employability that many new doors are opened to the men and women who obtain their GED, as well as their confidence while at the Mission.
However, what many of the homeless and downtrodden do not realize is there is something much more fulfilling awaiting them beyond those doors. Not only do we strive to meet their physical needs, but we hope in doing so, we gain the opportunity to share with them something that will satisfy their spiritual needs—the love of Jesus Christ.
With a solid biblical foundation, our goal is to provide a structured, Christ-centered environment helping individuals change their lives by dealing with their addictions, learning Christian principles and improving their relational skills. Our program consists of counseling, Bible studies and work therapy. Upon completion, graduates have the tools to rebuild their lives, hold a job and re-enter society as a contributing member to our local community.
Lives are transformed. The wisdom these men and women gain as a result of their encounter with Christ is a priceless treasure; worth far more than anything we could ever teach them. It is because of your support these things are possible. You indeed are helping to change lives in our community. Thank you for your faithful friendship.
