Hello Friends of Shawnee Rescue Mission!

Time for a long overdue update with Shawnee Rescue Mission!

First off, Thanks to all who have supported this Christ centered ministry. If you have just joined the ministries efforts or have been with us since the beginning ten years ago, we are so thankful for everyone!

Our season of weekly feedings concluded this week with the Thanksgiving meal last Sunday. Thank You Fairview Baptist Church, Starbucks Coffee and Taco Tico for providing all the food for almost 50 homeless and needy people.

With the cold winter weather rapidly approaching, SRM is now focusing on completing our brand new day center at 506 South Beard in Shawnee. It will be a refuge for the homeless and needy, a warm, safe place for them go during the day where they will find help with their situation and Christian fellowship.

New Day Center Updates- The day center is so close to being '' Legal to occupy'' . The doors and windows are on, the outside stucco work has started, the outside rock is on order and labor has been all donated! The parking lot is completely legal with the city, as far as codes and all as well.

The inside has been framed and the electrician and plumber have BOTH donated their professional labor COMPLETELY FREE!! The supplies have been ordered and should be started next week. We BELIEVE we have a source that is going to donate the sheet rock for FREE. As soon as we know for sure, all we have to do is rent a truck and pick it up!!

So, at this point, it looks like our last big hurdle is gonna be the heat and air. We need 2 big 5ton units and all duct work done. Looks like that's about $13,000 total. Once that is raised, we will have a 3.000 sq foot day center ready to go - paid for and debt free - all by the grace of our God! If you get a chance, drive by and even stop and take a look inside. 506 South Beard in Shawnee. Many of God's wonderful people will have their needs met there, body, soul and spirit, for many years to come!

We want to thank everyone that came out and helped Salvation Army yesterday. Many hundreds were fed and ministered to. Great weather and great food. All the more reason to give thanks to God.

Many needs were met this week. We had a phone call from a friend of Shawnee Rescue Mission and he wanted to know what needs were not being met that he could help with. We told him of how the Salvation Army needed 15 more turkeys for Thanksgiving. He said he would talk to his co-workers and see how many they could help with. Well, he called back a few minutes later and said they decided to do them ALL! Praise God! Also, SRM was able to transport many people to several Thanksgiving dinners and church services this week. We were blessed to be able to take a small group out to the bowling alley this week as well. All things done in His name.

We also thank God that a friend of SRM recently donated a pretty good church van/bus! It doesn't have any seats, but we are planning on going to a salvage yard soon to meet that need! This van is truly a answer to our prayers. THANK YOU!

Please check out our new website! We keep the calender updated with all our activities and events. Its the best place to go to find out what the latest news is.

Thanks and God Bless You All
