Thanks to all who supported our efforts to provide food and lodging for the men of Mother Theresa Haven (formerly known as V.I.S.I.O.N.). The men expressed their gratefulness, not only for their meals and a place to stay, but especially for welcoming them to worship with us.

Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him—his name is the LORD. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. — Psalm 68:4-5 (NIV)
