Director’s Message – November / December 2015

Dear Friends,

As we enter another holiday season and the end of another year, the Mission has so much for which to be thankful.

First, we had the honor of serving thousands of God’s children at a time when they need help the most. Second, we have about 4000 regular donors and about 2000 trusty volunteers, who contributed many dollars and more than 34,000 hours to the Mission so far this year. Third, we are ever so thankful that God has never let our trust, obedience and faithfulness go unnoticed.

We’ve made some expensive decisions this year -some forced, some unforced- and each time He’s guided us through the clutter. For example, we discovered three major water leaks over the spring and summer. Repairing those and related damages cost over $22,000. In addition we took a deep breath and paid $194,000 for a solar array that should generate most of the electricity we’ll need for the next 25 years. See the article in this edition.
Yes. We have a lot for which to be thankful.

On the horizon.

Again this year from 1-30 November the Denver Mattress Co. will match up to $2500 in online contributions to the Mission. You can Log on to the Denver Mattress website at and double your gift.

Meals on Wheels. We’ll need about 150 volunteers to cook, stage and deliver Thanksgiving and Christmas meals 26 November and 25 December. Bring the family and experience the joy of giving.

The Mission Christmas Party is set for 19 December this year, 7pm at the Chapel.
So, thank you for your generous giving, Las Cruces. Enjoy God’s blessings with family and friends again this season, and be ever mindful of who put the “Christ” in Christmas.
