One of the most remarkable and rewarding things that I have observed at Star of Hope is how friends like you show our clients the love of Jesus through your support of gifts and encouragement.
Recently, we asked our supporters to write words of encouragement to our clients on Thanksgiving cards we provided. In a short period of time we received such an abundant outpouring of love from all of you, that not only do we have cards to create a special display that will hang in each of our facilities, we also received enough cards to share with every man, woman and child here at Star of Hope!
These cards are just one example of how you touch their lives. The love you pour into the individuals and families we serve is evident in how God transforms their lives while they are here with us.
It’s truly remarkable to see how God can take a person at their very lowest, when there is no one else to turn to for a place to live and for life-help … and redeem and transform that life so totally. It’s just amazing to me!
Our goal for every man, woman & child who comes to Star of Hope is simple:
- Find a new relationship with Jesus Christ
- Learn to see themselves as whole, forgiven and loved by God
- Get back on their feet, get a good job and be committed to it
- See their life happier and healthier than ever before
I often run into Houstonians all around town who are successful graduates of the Star of Hope Mission. When I wear my Star of Hope shirt, I almost always encounter people who come up to me and tell me about their experience here … graduates who are now leading a successful life, with a good job and a place to live on their own. Most importantly, they have a relationship with Jesus Christ that is real and relevant in their daily living.
Successful, independent, joyful living, centered in Christ… that’s what we’re here for! And you are a big part of our mission! Thank you for all that you do to bless those we serve.
