"I came to the Mission on my own, and I'm so glad I did…I've been able to get away from the temptations that have really hurt me. I have a better perspective on my life and what God wants for me."
What is great about the love of God is that it works in the complete opposite to the way we think! We tend to think that we have to have it “all together” before we come to God. The great reversal of God is that God loves you in spite of your failings and sin.
Here are Haven of Rest we want the many men, women and children who come to the Mission to know that they are deeply loved by God. This can be hard to accept if your whole life you have been told that you are not worthy or good enough to be loved. But through the staff’s words and actions we hope to reverse the negative image our guests may have of themselves.
As we continue to preach the Good News of Christ, please keep our staff in prayer.
“Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change.” –Richard Rohr
