The support you provided us over the past year was as unprecedented as the pandemic we were facing. Just over a year ago, we came to you and asked for your help so we could continue providing food to those in need in our community. We knew we were preparing for the hunger crisis of a generation, and your response showed us we wouldn't have to do it alone.
This letter is to thank you for believing in our work and to give you a sense of the impact you have helped us make in our community over the past year.Your choice to invest in our mission, to trust our team and to believe in our clients gave us everything we needed to respond bigger and bolder. Your gifts gave our team the freedom to lean into their creativity and find new, safe ways to make more food available in more ways than ever before.
More than 60,000 times an individual or family came to The Open Door for food support in the last year and walked away with not only fresh food, but knowing that their community cared for them and would be there for them. That's more than double any year in our history!
"Thank you" doesn't begin to do our gratitude justice, so we hope when you look through this letter at the tremendous things you helped us accomplish, that you know the impact of your actions goes well beyond the confines of The Open Door. Your love and generosity resonates across Dakota County in stronger and healthier families. We know our work isn't done but with you on our side, we know we can ensure that fresh and healthy food will be available to thousands across Dakota County.
Valley Missions team and Church family,
A note of thanks!
Once again we come to you with a grateful heart as the ministry continues to touch lives in the inner city of San Luis Posoti, Mexico.
Ontañon Church of Christ:
The church has successfully opened up once again as they continue to follow the Health Department guidelines. It’s good to be able to worship together, hear God’s word preached, take communion and share in our gifts and offerings together. Jose once again started meeting in the home of one of our members for weekly Bible studies on Wednesday evenings.
Children´s day, April 30, was an overwhelming success in every way. The children came from the neighborhood (inner city) and enjoyed a day full of fun activities, such as games, music, snacks, and listening to God´s work spoken to them. Your gifts help us with opportunities like to this to share the news that Jesus loves the little children.
Jose also prepared a special Sunday service on May 9 to celebrate our special Mothers who form part of the Ontañon Church of Christ.
Just a quick highlight of how you are making a difference in a faraway place from your home to the homes of our children and families surrounding the mission of Emanuel.
Serving with you.
Jose, David and Sheri
