2017 Star of Hope Ministry Report

New Beginnings

(Published: March 2018)

Star of Hope Mission: 2017 Ministry Report You will see numbers in this report — numbers of meals, beds, clothing and more. They are large numbers for a large problem.

Change typically starts with a meal and a safe place to sleep. It bears lasting fruit when there is hope that tomorrow will be better than today.

Jesus Christ gives our guests that hope. No matter what happens to them God can handle it. Fear, loneliness, abandonment, addiction, sickness and unemployment are just some of the huge problems our guests face when they come here.

So many feel hopeless under these exhausting burdens. They may have tried and failed a hundred times before. But Jesus overcame death. He can overcome anything! Thousands of our guests rise up in faith and find that He can do that for them. It is wonderful to see!

You are part of a winning team … God’s team. He never fails and He is our hope for recovery and all our client’s needs.

I hope you experience more of the great joy of knowing Jesus Christ through your relationship with Star of Hope.

Serving with you in Christ,

Hank Rush
