There have always been homeless men in America. My mother tells how hobos would stop by their Wisconsin farm, and my grandmother would give them a cup of soup.
Many cities have rescue missions that offer homeless men temporary food and shelter—like the Market Street Mission in Morristown, NJ. Since 1889 the Market Street Mission has served the needs of homeless, hopeless and often addicted men. The mission offers “a ‘hand-up’ rather than a ‘hand-out.’”
“As members of His body, the Church, we present the saving power of Jesus Christ to rescue men from the consequences and ultimate penalty of sin and disciple them for victorious Christian living.”
Lord, provide Market Street Mission, and others like it around the world, with the resources they need: workers, space, food, finances and the wisdom that comes only through your Holy Spirit.
