New Beginnings

by Dr. Chad Audi

Many people look forward to this time of year. A new year is approaching, and it offers the opportune time for new beginnings.

For the homeless in this country, we pray that 2016 will bring them hope and help. Ours is a God of second chances. So, anything is possible. He is patient, merciful, gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. The disadvantaged are His children, too. They deserve love and opportunities.

Here at the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM), we believe in second chances, and third chances, and so on. We are in the business of rebuilding lives, one at a time. DRMM provides the tools that the homeless need to get back on their feet: a hot shower, food, clothing, counseling, career training, medical and dental assistance, substance abuse treatment, and spiritual nourishment.

We don’t know what 2016 will bring, but our New Year’s wish is that more people will escape the hardships of poverty, unemployment and addiction that often lead to homelessness.

Perhaps one of your New Year’s resolutions can be to help the homeless and others in need. Consider supporting the important work of non-profit organizations like DRMM through donations and volunteering. Your commitment will help change lives.

Sure, you can still make your resolution to give up a personal, bad habit. But at the same time, resolve to give to others for the New Year.

May God shower you with blessings today and into 2016.

It’s Your Season

by Dr. Chad Audi

We are entering the Easter season, and springtime is also upon us. It’s a season of new beginnings. And, it’s a season of restoration. It’s your season.

Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of people across this country aren’t feeling the hope that the season brings. They are dealing with constant hunger, a lingering hurt and complete hopelessness, despite this wonderful period of renewal.

Here at the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM), we are showing these lost and broken souls that it is their season, too. Although they may not believe things will ever get better in their lives, we are here to help them get a brand new start.

DRMM introduces our clients to the hope that lives in Christ and directs their feet along the path to redemption. We let them know that Christ is alive and more powerful than any thing or any situation they are facing. Everything can be overcome when you conquer your fears.

We also know that every new beginning starts with an act of kindness by a caring person. Our friends, donors and supporters are those caring souls — helping us rebuild the community with their generous gifts.

You, too, can bring hope to the hopeless this spring season. Help feed the hungry. Provide a donation or volunteer your time to help those who are struggling to find the good in life.

Share the hope and love that lead to new beginnings. There is no greater gift.
Blessings to all during this joyous season of rebirth.

Dr. Chad Audi
