Christmas at the Mission

By December 21, 2015 August 1st, 2019 No Comments

How do homeless men and women celebrate Christmas? For most homeless individuals, spending time with family is not an option because of distance, past failures, and present problems. If Christmas is merely looked upon as a time when families get together to exchange gifts, eat meals, and share special moments and memories with one another, then most homeless individuals would have reason to be very sad at Christmas time.
Here at Miracle Hill Rescue Mission, our clients are not forgotten at Christmas. Thanks to the family of God, items are given to the Mission and are passed on to the clients. A special Christmas meal and gifts are provided for all clients and again this year, a personalized stocking will be given to each man and women. A local teenage young lady personally writes the name of the client on the stocking to show them that they are more than just a number. They are real people and real people really are concerned about them.
We encourage our clients to be in touch with their families and use this time to help make amends for past failures and build bridges toward the future; however, we seek to teach each client that Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. As a child of God, we have a new family – fellow believers, and if natural families are not an option, we can spend time with and encourage other members of the family of God.
