Letter from the CEO
When you get up in the morning, you just never know how God might use you. The day might seem very normal— a stop at your local coffee shop, work, and then, maybe a stop at the grocery store or the gas station on your way home. At the end of the day, you finally connect with your family for dinner and discuss the day’s activities.
It may all sound so ordinary, but you probably interacted with many people along the way, never knowing what impact you made—how God may have used you to help them. You were just going through your day, you were not trying to change the world or cure cancer (unless you are a cancer researcher, then good for you!). But you were part of people’s lives. You may have imparted something positive, something good that you said or did and you will never know it.
It’s humbling and exciting at the same time to know that I had a small part to play in the life of Brooks, that God used me for good when it seemed like a normal day to me.
We all have a chance, no matter how mundane our lives might seem, to interact with people in an encouraging, loving and Christ-like manner. We have the opportunity to impact people for eternity. Sounds pretty important doesn’t it? At the Mission, we call it changing lives in the name of Christ. Your donations, your time volunteering and your prayers all are making a difference in people’s lives. Your compassion is changing lives. We know this to be true because of your consistent support for the Mission. Thank you for partnering with us.
When I come to work in the morning I like to say to my staff, and I want to say to you now, “Hey, let’s do some good today.”
