...I mean anywhere in the world. Who would provide for theemergency, temporary help offered to those in need, with anopportunity to hear the Gospel message and an invitation toaccept Jesus Christ as their Savior?I know there are other agencies around that provide help.They are to be commended and we need them. However, theChristian Rescue Mission goes
, for the most part,by local authorities and the community. While we are notlooking for praises from men, we are here to serve God inthis capacity, but it would be extremely encouraging if thosein places of authority would recognize the help the ChristianRescue Mission provides for the city. Again, what if we werenot here—who would take care of the many people thatdepend on the Gospel Rescue Mission, supported by faithfuldonors like those of you that are reading this newsletter?
There needs to be a Public Awareness Campaign
tomake known to the cities that Missions serve just howmuch good they really do
nancial help fromthe municipalities, state or federal government.
RescueMissions operate very cost effectively on meager budgets,giving a helping hand up to those in need. I have talked tomany people in Anchorage and they do not even know weare here, what we do or that we have the best most ef
cientDrug and Alcohol Program anywhere.On the national level the Executive Director, Rev. SteveBurger, of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, and44 representatives from Christian Gospel Rescue Missionsacross the country met with elected of
cials and their staff for the eighth straight year to make the nation aware of allof the many good things done by Christian Rescue Missions.Rev. Burger said, “It was a thrilling experience to hold handswith these people and pray for the
movement.” Iwonder what kind of reception this Christian committeewould have received in Anchorage.Rev. Burger further commented, “It is exhilarating to standwith national leaders and testify how God is changing lives(the national leaders know that people need a Christianenvironment and Christ in their life for change to take placein their life) They are thrilled with stories of transformedlives. If that were all our Public Awareness Programaccomplished, it would still be a great asset. The power of atransformed life and the power of prayer are awesome.”All of the nation’s Christian Gospel Rescue Missionsincluding the Anchorage Gospel Rescue Mission have agreat opportunity to help people in need with essentialsof life and more, like education through our ComputerLearning Center. It provides job readiness training as wellas instructions in basic life skills individuals need to survive.All of this and an introduction to Jesus Christ by presentingthe Gospel through the Chapel service and the life style of our staff.If we can just get a Public Awareness Campaign started andspread throughout the city, then, perhaps people will knowwhat we do.
Since you know what we do, will you pleasehelp us with this campaign by telling some of the goodnews of RESCUE?
