We’re glad you are here! Since 1938 the Union Gospel Mission of Grays Harbor has been working with the Grays Harbor Community to bring real solutions to the Homeless and Hurting.
You will find lots of great information on this site, and ways to be involved in this important work.
Please feel free to call if we can help.
From the Executive Director
PRAISE GOD FOR DECEMBER 21ST!!! December 21st is when the days start getting longer, and I love the long days of summer. Each year the staff laughs at me because I start the count down about the middle of November to December 21st. I can’t wait for the warm summer days and BASEBALL! And baseball training camp starts about the middle of February, so life is good.
One of the things I love about Jesus is He is light. The Bible says in John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” I remember before I became a Christian I thought I had all the answers, but I finally figured out that I was wandering around in the dark. I managed to do that for twenty-nine years and I kept running into walls and bumping my nose. The crazy part was I kept blaming everyone else for all my woes.
When I finally wised up and let Jesus into my life it was amazing how much easier life became. I let Him become my light and lead me and all of a sudden I wasn’t running into walls anymore! I decided that I wanted to reflect the light of Christ so I could help other people to stop running into walls and bumping their noses.
Another thing I have found is that the light of Christ is warm. The love of God just warms you from the inside out and lets you feel emotions you never knew you had.
Power In Prayer
Prayer is a very important part of any ministry. Without prayer and the work of God going on the Mission and Friendship House would become like any other social service. With the prayer of God’s people we will be able to continue to meet the physical and spiritual needs, providing hope, and giving a new start to many lives.
The Mission has included a place for your prayer requests HERE. If you submit a prayer request, during our staff meeting we will pray for you. As you send us your needs we will list them and seek God on your behalf.
Today I would like to invite you to sign up to be a prayer partner for the Mission and Friendship House. CLICK HERE to sign up to be a Prayer Partner. We are requesting your prayers for this work and on a regular basis we will send an e-letter advising you of the needs that you can help us pray for.
Thanks so much,
- Gary Rowell
