Last year Haven of Mercy Ministries fed and ministered to over 4,000 men, women and children at our Christmas Day meal. This year we anticipate feeding over 4,200. We also deliver hot meals on Christmas Day to the shut-in, sick, and those who are simply forgotten.
Hundreds of children receive their Christmas gifts from Santa Claus here every Christmas Day. These children are overlooked or forgotten by other ministering agencies and would not get anything for Christmas, some, not even a meal.
We minister to their physical needs, showing the love and life-giving Word of God. Many meet Jesus here for the first time. Every soul saved, every meal served, every night of safe shelter*, every shut-in, every man, woman and child, every vet helped, every home supplied with a generous food box, power, heat, water, clothing or furniture is a victory for the Kingdom of God!
This is our most costly season; heating, water and food costs skyrocket! This year alone, we have fed over 165,000 hot meals, provided over 45,000 individual nights of safe shelter*, and have seen over 300 first time commitments to Jesus as Lord and Savior. Our chapel services are full and running over. Men and women come from all over the region because they have heard and seen that lives are really changed and miracles really do happen here!
*Safe shelter is a hot shower, hot meal(s), clean & dry bed, and protection from the elements.
