The result of a former residents' work These were just very small plants that were lost in this big pot. They remind us of planting seeds of love and kindness. We may not think it's much at the time, but those seeds are capable of great things we may never actually see.

What an exciting day around the mission! The Brooklet Kiwanis Club visited and had collected some much needed items. Then, we received items from the women's Sunday School Class of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church. Mrs. Nina Giles, a local artist, brought over a mural that she created just for the dining room. She has wanted tp dp this for so long. We are constantly awed by this community and the way they support Open Hearts.

How does your garden grow? We're kinda feeling like Jack and the beanstalk with our beautiful cucumbers and tomatoes.

This week at the mission found us busy getting a 19 year old lined up for work at Wal Mart Distribution and going through the process pf gettimg a 21 year old an ID so he can go to work next week. We also had a new male mentor to sign up and spend time with the 21 year old who has never had a male figure in his life. How wonderful it was to watch this man work with this young resident....showing him how to change air filters, taking him to Goodwill for summer clothes and then out to lunch. ... See more
