Newness of Life

During this Easter season, the lily is the flower that represents death – but also resurrection, as in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ into “newness of life.”

Romans 6:4 says, “…that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”

That is also the mission of the Durham Rescue Mission: to offer “newness of life” to those in our Triangle community where many are hurting and in need of help. Because of the generous support of friends like you we have seen many experience this transformation.

Our goal is to always help by “offering a hand up – not just a handout” to bring about “newness of life” for literally hundreds of women, children and men who come to our Mission desperately needing their own Easter miracle.

I am asking you to return a special Easter gift to help the work of the Durham Rescue Mission. Your gift of ANY amount will help feed – and assist in other critical ways – people at our Mission.

Most of us have seen or even know folks that are in need and most families have been touched by some type of addictions. Things are often dark, stormy and hopeless.

But I wish you could see the difference the Durham Rescue Mission makes in the lives of many who come through our doors hungry…homeless…sleeping in cars…suffering from abuse or deadly addictions…or just in need of some job training or counseling. The list of those who have found “newness of life” at the Durham Rescue Mission goes on and on.

Please return the best tax-deductible gift that you can to help us minister to hurting women, children and men in our Triangle area.

During this Easter season, what better time to help those that need “newness of life” so desperately?

Thank you for your friendship,
