The Lexington Rescue Mission is a Godsend to those that need and use their services, but also those of us who serve and give. For almost 10 years my family and I choose LRM to give our time and resources. Not only because it's what we are called to do, but because every time we do, WE are blessed. The people who walk through the door who are hungry or need a little help end up brightening up the day of those who are helping them. My children have also served for all these years and they have seen that they are needed, even though they are young and as they grow, they will take that with them int the world.

The Great!

My daughter had the opportunity to be a part of the Lexington Rescue Mission staff as a social worker in their homeless prevention progam. She came to them through the Mission's partnership with AmeriCorps. Lindsey was a recent BSW graduate looking for her first job. Not only does the Lexington Rescue Mission reach out to those in our community who are in need of help, the Mission has a history of reaching out to the young professionals who are eager to put their educational training into action. Lindsey completed her year of service through AmeriCorps and stayed another year as a paid staff member. Her professional and personal growth was inspired by the dedicated staff and volunteers of t he Lexington Rescue Mission. It was a difficult decision for her to leave in order to attend graduate school. The experience she gained working with the homeless and nearly homeless through the Lexington Rescue Mission's outreach programs were invaluable as she pursued a MSW. Lindsey speaks highly of the level of service that the Mission provides to our city and continues to maintain friendships with the staff.

I am a native Lexantonian and having lived here my entire life, I have witnessed many changes. I too grew up in Fairington Apt a subsidized housing complex. I lived there from 1979 to 1991. I had no idea really how poor we were and we always had something to eat because my mother was a genius with what we had and an excellent cook. However, times and women have changed. In won't go into those obvious details. However, Jim and Becky Connell, along with Laura have answered a calling from God. I have volunteered for Klothes for Kids, Event planning for Fall Banquet and serve @ least once a month in the kitchen with Bob and Garland as well as donating all my household items to their thrift stores. I can say that I love and find fulfillment in my work ONLY because of these people. We all have a ministry as we grow to be more like our Savior and truly he does live. We weren't meant to serve alone and with my volunteering I feel I have also been ministered to by a divine holy spirit. I thank all volunteers who act in obedience to this purpose. We have angry people in this world and when they encounter a love at this mission it will soften their heart. I pray for more ideas to satisfy the great need foreseen in the future, but mostly for God to work in the clients to live life to it's abundance. In Christ Alone

The Great!

Perhaps a bigger garden and a team of volunteer canners in the harvest.
