Thank You On behalf of Mothers
Who now have homes because of your gifts to New Life Evangelistic Center

Thank you! It’s because of the generosity of caring people like you that during the past year many mothers and children from throughout Mid-America have received help. 

As Mother’s Day approaches the needs of the mothers we serve continues. I am asking you now to please share a very special Mother’s Day gift in order that we may help mothers and children who are in need at this time.  We must raise $50,000 before Mother’s Day. This money is needed to help New Life Evangelistic Center move forward toward re-opening the shelter at 1411 Locust.

The hearing before the Missouri Court of Appeals regarding our Plat & Petition case is scheduled in the month of May.  This involves whether or not neighbors have to sign petitions to allow one to practice their religion when it comes to the provision of shelter.

While New Life is working to raise legal funds to reopen 1411 Locust, mothers and their children are being placed in apartments of their own and receiving other direct assistance.  This includes metro link tickets, care kits, food and much more.

In addition to that, New Life Evangelistic Center is spending thousands of dollars each week, to help hurting mothers and their children who have shut-off notices to keep the utilities on in their homes.

Just as Jesus makes it possible to come to our Heavenly Father for a new beginning, He uses New Life as a vessel that provides hope to many homeless and hurting mothers in our community.

The beauty of New Life for many mothers is that NLEC allows them to keep their families together and enables the children to continue their education. Having a stable place to stay at night and a constant support system through the NLEC programs allows moms to focus on the other priorities that will move their family in the right direction. New Life provides new roots for moms by embracing them with the love of Christ, surrounding them in His presence and teaching them His great peace.

Jesus’ mother Mary was such a beautiful example of the sacrifices moms make while being entrusted with God’s children. As we prepare to honor our own mothers on Mother’s Day, we ask you to give what God puts on your heart to bless the moms that we serve. They need you to join New Life as we continue to work to provide them with shelter, permanent housing, and energy assistance.

On behalf of the homeless mothers and children, I want to say –

Thank you and May God Bless you and your Mother with a very blessed Mother’s Day!

Yours in Christ’s Service,

Larry Rice

P.S. Please send your special Mother’s Day gift now!  We need your response before Mother’s Day (May 13, 2018) so that mothers and their children can remain in their homes through Energy Assistance, or if they are homeless to be placed in housing.  Please remember to pray for the homeless mothers and those in need on May 2, 2018.
