Spring Baby Shower: It is such a blessing to be able to help expectant mothers at the Women & Children’s Center, and we are very excited to be expecting the arrival of three little babies very soon. We want to shower these sweet little ones and their mothers with everything they will need in their first few months, and we would like to help replenish some of the constant baby needs we have at the mission. If you would like to attend the shower or need more details to purchase gifts, please visit our Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Search & Rescue Outreach: Our first event was held on February 20, 2016, and it was a great success! Our team was able to reach out to those who are living on the streets. They delivered a hot breakfast, new socks, warm hats and scarves, and basic hygiene items. We are already looking forward to our next Search & Rescue day to be held later this month.
Easter: We will be celebrating Easter with our residents and guests with a special meal on Good Friday, March 25, 2016. On Easter weekend, we will have activities for the children and they will all receive Easter baskets. Pray with us that everyone who celebrates with us over Easter learns about the meaning and value of the Resurrection.
Vision Screenings: This month we will be offering free vision screenings provided by Vision Is Priceless to our residents in the Women and Children’s Center. Vision Is Priceless has already completed screenings at the Freedom Farm. One obstacle for many of our clients to overcome is the inability to access vision care. Eyesight is important for our residents to participate in our programs. We are looking forward to connecting our residents to this great resource.
Special Guests and Chapel Renovation: Special thanks to Scott Herndon and the Surface Removal Systems team for donating their time, materials and labor to resurface our chapel floor. It looks great! We were able to coordinate the renovation with an amazing special event lunch with The Salty Dog Food Truck and My Season Chicken & Ribs. To top everything off, we had a special visit from the Jacksonville Jaguars Chaplain Anthony Johnson and players Tyson Alualu and Carson Tinker.
Prayer Requests: Please be in prayer for those who are in need and homeless over the next few months. The heat over the summer is harsh and can take its toll on a person’s health. We want their hearts and minds open to know they can seek refuge at Trinity Rescue Mission.

WCC Dorm Makeover: We would like to say thank you to the Sisterhood of Servants and the S.O.S Girls for all of their efforts in giving one of our WCC dorm rooms a makeover. They spent many hours sewing handmade quilts for each of the ten beds, painted the room, and painted Psalm 46:10 on the wall, “Be still and know that I am God.” They did a great job!
