The Mission at Kern County’s purpose is to offer an environment conducive to the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of the people we serve by providing hope and a future through Jesus Christ.
I know I’ve said it before, and by God’s grace I’ll say it again, but . . . the generosity and compassion found in our community never ceases to amaze me. As we approach the Thanksgiving season, I could not be more grateful for what you’ve allowed us to accomplish this year.
It’s not just that you’re helping provide critical care for the worst-off people in our community. Or that you’re giving them hope and a future through compassionate addiction recovery, spiritual growth, and career training classes. I’m even more grateful because you came together with other good neighbors to meet a critical unmet need . . .
Thanks to your prayers and support, The Mission at Kern County is only a few short months away from opening a shelter for mothers with children. Some of these women are fleeing abuse. Others are overwhelmed by addiction or poverty. Whatever their story, we’ll be able to answer their desperate cries for help. As a result, many children will be spared not only from suffering now, but from repeating the disastrous decisions and circumstances that derailed their parents’ lives.
Words can never fully express how much I appreciate you for making this possible. Nor can they capture the life-changing impact you’re having on so many people. But at least you understand why I’m so grateful for you this Thanksgiving.
