The "Lifeblood" of The Rescue Mission

Dear Rescue Mission Volunteers,

No amount of recognition could ever repay you for what you've done for The Rescue Mission.

Maybe you feel like you just served a meal. Maybe you wonder if the hours you put in at Treasure House really did anything. Maybe you're not sure if that conversation you had with one of our Charis House women really mattered.

I want you to know that it does matter, and that as a volunteer, you are the lifeblood of our ministry at The Rescue Mission. Your selfless dedication and donation of your time is something that emotionally moves not only our staff, but the residents as well. They notice you. They appreciate you. Your smiles make their day!

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Mark 10:45

When I see our volunteers, and there are hundreds, at any of our Rescue Mission ministries, I see Jesus. I see Jesus in those serving meals. I see Jesus in our volunteers who do data entry. I see Jesus in those who work the donation door. Our volunteers make transformation possible in the people we serve.

On this week nationally dedicated to celebrating volunteers, I want to thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus for the hungry and homeless in Fort Wayne. Together, we are "Changing Lives for Good."
