Changed Lives and a New Beginning!

Though the weather’s finally warm and all the promises of summer lie ahead, this can still be a tremendously difficult season for the most vulnerable people in Anderson.

People like Marie, who came to Haven of Rest for a meal, help, and hope when all seemed lost . . .

In fact, if you stop and speak with her—she’ll look you in the eye, just like she did with me and say, “If it weren’t for God, I’d be dead.”

And this month alone, nearly 100 people who have fallen on hard times just like Marie will seek shelter at The Haven. And that’s a tremendous strain on our resources, because so many who help support this ministry head away for summer.

To provide food, shelter, and care for these neighbors in need, we must prayerfully receive $75,600 each month this summer—in June, July, and August.

But I’m certain that through the faithful and timely caring of friends like you, we’ll be there with a meal and hope in Jesus for a life on the line like Marie’s.

A lifetime of abuse, loss, and hardship landed Marie in jail, where the Lord found her. “For a long time, I couldn’t forgive myself,” she says with tears in her eyes, “But God is showing me the way every day!”

Reaching lives like Marie’s who are in desperate need of Christ’s love and redemption along with meals and shelter is what The Haven is all about—with your support!

So thank you for your partnership, for helping provide this place of rescue, restoration, and hope. Your summer support provides more than a meal and a place to stay . . .

You’re also extending the loving care of Jesus and equipping those in need with the skills, training, and biblical insight for changed lives—and a new beginning!
