Through the amazing generosity of several Mission supporters we are able to host a $40,000 match campaign! Please be a part of The Miracles at The Mission by joining the campaign and helping us to provide meals, shelter and care for women and children in need. This campaign will end on June 1, 2020.

Dear Friends of The Mission,
I have missed being at the campus and having the opportunity to interact with everyone, especially those seeking tours and dropping off donations. I am proud of our staff and residents who are continuing to follow our safety guidelines during these challenging times. Keeping the virus away from our campus so that no one becomes infected is our number one objective.
It is understandable that our residents, staff and supporters have feelings of isolation and restlessness during this period of shelter in place. Most everyone that I have talked to feels the same way. Hopefully, during this time you have found some comfort in knowing that God is in control, and He has a plan for your life as we persevere together through this pandemic.
We are extremely grateful for God’s continued protection, provision and blessing. Fortunately, there are no COVID 19 cases on our campus!
Maintaining the shelter in place will need to continue for a little while longer. Although there is some loosening of restrictions in Texas, the Mission is in a specific category that requires extra safety measures and time constraints.
We will continue to monitor COVID 19 updates from the Center for Disease Control as well as information provided by both the local and national government and health authorities. This information will be utilized going forward to influence our decisions regarding Mission protocol.
The storm is not over so we need to remain vigilant. Because many of our residents are in the higher risk category it is incumbent upon us to err on the side of caution by not loosening our controls too quickly. The health and safety of our residents and staff continues to be our number one concern.
Many of our former residents are seeking reentry to our campus, but they are being denied at this time until the shelter in place is lifted. We anticipate a surge in the number of women and children seeking shelter in the next 18 months due to our contracting economy affecting jobs, and there will most likely be a reduction in government aid.
We are beginning the process of evaluating when to reopen the campus. When we make this decision, it will be done gradually in phases. A negative COVID 19 test will be required for entry.
The phases might work like the following:
We would like for each of you to make a commitment to pray for us as we move forward on this unknown journey. We definitely need God’s protection, provision and guidance during these uncertain times.
I would like to thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding of the protocol established for the Mission, and I look forward to the day when we can resume our normal operations.
May God bless you and keep you safe.
