I think that today really hit us all at Homwtown Mission. We had several families come in for assistance that were just so in need. I think more in need of prayer than anything. We are all so fortunate to have the things that we have. I think that the little things are so taken for granted and just over looked. I ask you today to please pray for all of our families as they struggle to find peace in their lives. We don't know all that they are going through and we cannot fix their problems, but we can ask the amazing God that we serve to bless them and pour his grace over each one of them. And I think in this whole process, to have them know how much He loves them would be better than any gift.

Thank you God for loving us and providing for us each and everyday!

In Him,

These marvelous kids finshed their work at Hometown Mission Headquarters! They did the most fantastic job. The windows look great and everyone that comes in to see us coments on the job! It makes people happy! Thank you to Mark COllins who is the art teacher at Robinson High School and to his class! Job Well Done!!!

So who doesn't love a Christmas Tree? They just make the day happy! There is something magical about twinkling lights. Don't you agree?
So this bottle, (and several others) became a very close friend of ours as we cleaned the back part of the old school. Wow a lot of dirt was found and a very pleasant smell after the Fabuloso was used! Amazing what it can do!
Well this weekend has brought in many mailed applications. This is a good thing! We have now surpassed the number of families that we had apply last year. For us that is major! We wanted to help more than we did last year...and it looks like we have met that goal. How awesome! Now hopefully we will be able to get the same number of families to step in and help us by adopting a family and providing their needs! If you have not already signed up to help a family, pray about it and hopefully you will be lead to help someone in our community. We want you to join with us and make this year even better than last! Can we do it???

Blessing to you all this coming week,
So here are a couple photos of the Robinson Art Students showing their awesome ability! Way to go class! Hopefully they are having as much fun painting as we are watching! WE can't wait to see the finished product!

My new career!

So this week Jerry Ann and I have spent everyday cleaning out the back part of the old school. We are trying to start early and prepare each room for the different areas that we need. I think that I may have a career as a janitor! Yes lots and lots of sweeping and moping! WOW I have never seen so much dirt! For those of you that attended school here I think you would be proud at what we have accomplished! Our backs feel like those of 90 year old ladies but all for a great cause! I'll update with photos! Have a super evening!

Today was so great! The Art class at Robinson High School started painting on the windows. Hey Robinson...we have some amazingly talented kids in our school! They are doing such a great job! I will get some photos posted so you can enjoy! Drive by and take a look. They are so awesom!
Well, I am so very delighted to finally have the "Hometown Mission" blog up and running! It has taken me a little longer than I would have liked, but it is here!
Friends, this has been an absolutley amazing few weeks. We have taken applications for over 80 family as of today. I know, a little overwhelming, but what a true blessing to be able to meet each family and be a part of helping them.
I am devoting myself to this blog so that I can keep each one of you posted on how we are doing! If you have not signed up to help in some way I pray that you find it in your heart to help us make this holiday special for each family that we get.
God is going to do great things through A Hometown Mission this year...I can feel it!
