Letter from Our Director
The month of September often signals the beginning of fall. School supply shopping, meet the teacher nights and fall festivals begin to fill our collective calendars.
But for many Mission:Dignity® recipients, fall is just business as usual as they wonder how they will pay for prescriptions, buy groceries and keep the lights on at home.
So, as we all get back into our routines after the relaxed summer months, we want to express to you how thankful we are for each and every donation to Mission:Dignity, which helps relieve those burdens and worries.
We hear stories every day about how your support is being used to ease, comfort, encourage and empower retired ministers, workers and their widows as they continue living for Christ and His kingdom in their later years.
One of the people you are helping is Earleen Castleberry, whose husband, Gary, faithfully pastored in Oklahoma for 35 years and became a Mission:Dignity recipient last year:
“Since Gary’s passing, I have had to move out of our home of almost four years because it was the church parsonage. I have moved into a small apartment but now have bills that I never had before. I have had to learn how to do with less. This has been a difficult transition for me, and your gracious donation to Mission:Dignity will help me out in many ways.”
As we head into the fall, know that those of us at Mission:Dignity are working hard to serve each Mission:Dignity recipient well — and we could not do it without your generous gifts.
We also want to make sure you are hearing and seeing the impact of your gifts! If you have a minute, pick up your smart phone or log into social media from your home computer to like and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter — @MissionDignity — for daily updates and recipient stories.
We hope and pray that this upcoming season, the season of harvest, is just that for you, yours and all of our Mission:Dignity recipients.
Your friends and MissionDignity,
