“O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth.”

Dear Friends, 

O Holy Night is a beautiful hymn because it speaks of the coming of Christ as Savior, and for many of our guests here at the Mission, it speaks of hope in the Savior Who has come.  As men and women come to the Mission for restoration, they no longer need to worry about where they’re going to sleep for the night, or where their next meal will come from, and they can enjoy the beauty of the Southern Oregon autumn and focus on change.
“A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices.”
Many men and women come to the Mission weary, tired of doing things their own way, and exhausted from seeking happiness that the world can not provide.  They come to us looking for something better, to be restored to a place of dignity in our community.  And quite often, their rejoicing doesn’t come from finding a place to live, securing a job, or even conquering addiction challenges.  For most of our guests, they have victories in these areas, but their rejoicing comes from being in a right relationship with Jesus Christ.  
“Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.”
Many of our guests grow tremendously in our Christ-centric classes and join local churches as we teach them to : Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2)  
“Truly He taught us to love one another,  
His law is love and His gospel is peace. ”
Please keep these men and women in your prayers in the upcoming year as they do the difficult work of addressing the various challenges they face and as they seek…  
“His power and glory ever more proclaim! ”
Thank you for helping us restore lives and transform our community.  May the Lord bless and keep you in perfect peace this Christmas,
