Last year I experienced the joy of new life firsthand with the birth of my first grandchild. As I held my precious grandchild for the first time, I couldn’t help but reflect on the excitement of new life, and how God must feel this way about us, His children! At Easter, we are reminded of the Good News that through the selfless sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we are now adopted as sons and daughters of God! And just as Jesus was raised, we too are able to share in that glorious resurrection with restored lives.

Every day at the Rescue Mission, I see the reality of this Good News as formerly homeless men, women, and children encounter Christ and are given a chance at new life. So take heart! Our Savior lives and by His resurrection, we too are promised new life!
Thank you for your support of Orange County Rescue Mission, which brings hope and restoration to the lives of the Least, the Last, and the Lost. May you and your family be blessed with the love of Jesus Christ this Easter.
