We all know that change can hurt. I like to say that change will not occur until the pain of staying the same exceeds the pain of change.
That’s why street feeding is counter-productive.The person doing the feeding may feel good about it, but in fact may be extending others’ suffering by enabling them to stay on the streets. People in the throes of addiction or needing other help can quickly adapt to Third World conditions with only a blanket, tarp or tent providing they are regularly fed.
So why not help the Mission to be Christ’s agent of change in the lives of the hungry and homeless of our community? I promise – thanks to faithful donors like you – there is plenty of food and shelter here at John 3:16 Mission along with programs that change lives forever!
