The needs are so great – we need your help to keep the doors of StreetLight Mission open!

November 2013

Here at StreetLight Mission, we’ve seen a great increase in the number of people coming to us for help. Times continue to be tough with rising costs and lower wages. More and more families just don’t have enough money to keep up with their bills. They are forced to choose whether to pay their rent, buy food, clothe their children or visit the doctor.

Two area food pantries have just closed, increasing the demand for food.  Every day we are open we see hundreds of families coming to us in need of help. We’re relying on compassionate friends like you to help us keep the doors of StreetLight Mission open.

We don’t say this lightly. Without your support we will not have the funds to stay open through the end of this year. Early on we made a decision to preach the Gospel in everything we do. As such we have chosen to rely on those, who like us, believe that we are told by God to feed the poor, clothe the naked, comfort the sick and visit the prisoner.

Your generosity has miraculously opened the doors of StreetLight Mission. We have no doubt that through your gift, God will not only continue to keep us open but help us expand to meet the increased demand for help.

By becoming a Day of Hope Partner you are ensuring that we are there for the many families who come to us for help. With a monthly gift of $40 you will be opening the doors of the Mission for one day. Your gift works out to a cost of just $1.32 a day.

With your gift you will be investing in the lives of thousands of people whose lives will be forever changed because of YOU!

Let us share with you the story of just one of the many families you have helped. Jean and Idarmy came to us ten years ago. They were active drug dealers and mistakenly thought we were a night club. Very quickly Jean and Idarmy were overwhelmed by the love of Christ they felt at StreetLight. They accepted Jesus as their Savior and began a journey that has forever changed their lives and that of their children. Please enjoy a short video of their story and hear just how much Idarmy appreciates your help. Click here.

Right now we need 198 Day of Hope partners to sign up before the end of 2013. Please click here to send your gift now to become a Day of Hope Partner.

As a Day of Hope Partner, you get to pick the day(s) you want to open the Mission. You can even give a Day of Hope as a gift to someone you would like to honor.

We thank you for being as generous as possible in your giving. Challenge your friends to together open the Mission for a week. You can follow our progress to keep the doors of StreetLight Mission open on our website.

So please become a Day of Hope Partner right now!

We know that together we can fulfill the call of God to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, care for the sick and bring comfort to the prisoner. Let us together demonstrate the love of Christ to those in need.

May God abundantly bless you and your family during this Thanksgiving season.
