I am guilty of not keeping up with my blogs! I have no excuses. But I do have some great news! This weekend we heard that we have received the Use and Occupancy Permit for our newly-renovated original 1029 East Baltimore Street building. It looks just wonderful and we can’t wait to move in. I hope you will come down and see it for yourself.
The building was designed and constructed (and the money was raised!) to truly honor the Lord. It was also built to show homeless men in our community struggling with drug and alcohol addiction that our extended Helping Up Mission family really does care about them. You have helped us create a campus right here in downtown Baltimore where a man can connect to God and experience the hope, answers and empowerment that only He provides.
To all of you who have supported this project directly or the general work of Helping Up Mission over the years – thank you so much. I hope you will come down and see it and rejoice with us. I also hope you will come and celebrate with us at our 2010 Graduation Banquet on May 16 at Martin’s West.
I am proud to be part of Helping Up Mission. I am so grateful for all the wonderful folks who have stood with us over the years. To God be the Glory!
