An Encouraged Witness

     I have had the privilege to be part of the restructuring plan at Timberlake Outreach
Renovations at the Timberlake Outreach Center continue to
move along wonderfully!
Center. Through this project, I have been reminded of what God is doing in and through Open Door Mission.

     Our leaders have seen the talents and potential in our program men, and given them opportunities to give back. These men have found purpose and now I can see they actually feel alive again. God has a plan and future for all of them!
     I have witnessed men and women that have journeyed down the hard road, lost much if not everything, walked through healing in Jesus, and now are leaders at Open Door Mission!  They inspire me and give us all hope. It is a pleasure and honor to work beside them!
     I have met neighbors from our community that we have loved and cared for, given resources and spiritual direction to, and who are now working, living less dependent on hand outs and more on Him!
     It can be difficult to see day-to-day what God is doing in our hectic lives, however if we take a minute and step back, He will show us His plans and desires. I have been reminded that God’s desire is to capture our hearts, renew our minds, and teach us to rely on His strength.
     Our love for Jesus changes the landscape of our surroundings. Thank you to all wonderful staff members, volunteers, and donors that allow Him to flow in and through you into this place.
     We can trust Him in everything. God’s word promises that He is able to do more than we can ever imagine! He loves us all deeply!
