The Gospel Mission Women and Children’s Shelter... A Dream Come True!
Since 1999, over 2500 different women and children have been ministered to, and many have come to Christ. Just last year, an area church organized a group to come and make many renovations on the inside of our building. Replacing carpet and furniture, doing painting and window dressing, along with bringing a great deal of encouragement to our clients, this group was able to accomplish much in a very short time.
But their efforts did not stop there. They have returned again this year and have accomplished even more. Such volunteer efforts demonstrate the partnership that many of our churches and communities have with the Mission. In fact, numerous churches and volunteers have served the Mission 25 years or more.
The greatest work being done at our shelter is by our Lord and Savior. Recently, over a two month period, we were able to witness half of the residents earnestly seek a saving relationship with Him! Additionally, many have been able to obtain longer term housing and assistance beyond the shelter walls. The greatest joy we have is in knowing that as they leave, they take the promise of eternity with them.
Renee Jensen presently serves as our director and would welcome you and/or your volunteer group to come and schedule a time when you can experience the blessing that service to the Mission can provide. Opportunities exist to do day jobs, evening chapel services and assist staff personnel. Or there may be other skills and talents you wish to share that are not listed. Feel free to call (712-255-1119) and enlist your services to her. And experience together all the Lord has in store for you.
