Mission: San Antonio – Day 4

Mission: San Antonio – Day 4

Posted On Jun 30, 2017 | Ward Page

Our day began with a trip to the San Jose Mission, founded in 1720. We wanted the youth to see this place because we wanted to educate them about the history of missions in San Antonio. In fact, you can’t really get a sense of what the Alamo was like until you see San Jose, since the city of San Antonio has been built around the Alamo, and San Jose still remains on the city’s outskirts.

After a quick bite at Whataburger, a San Antonio fast food institution, we traveled to Haven for Hope, which is about a 37-acre compound of government and non-profit organizations that work to serve the needs of the homeless.

We learned a lot from the docents, who gave us a tour of the facilities, and how they serve men, women and families. They offer medical, dental and vision care, in addition to feeding, housing, clothing the members. Beyond that, there are addiction recovery programs, employment resources, educational opportunities, and programs for kids of all ages. Haven for Hope truly endeavors to do it all.

After our tour we began to set up in the chapel. We had brought photo cards to invite members to our worship service, and custom water bottles to pass out to those who came in. We handed out all of water bottles, so we presume that around 50 people came to worship with us.

Haven for Hope was our final worship service. Tomorrow we go to the Unicorn Center.

    Thanks for coming to the San Antonio Rescue Mission on Wednesday, June 28. I am a long time Board member of SARM and was able to attend your worship service with this mission a few years ago. You all are a very special group of youth representing Christ’s love for all people in a wonderful and very inspirational way. I am sorry I had to miss your performance on Wednesday night. If you have one or two photographs (including a group photograph) of your worship service on Wednesday night, would you please send them to me? I would like to have our web site manager put a short article and photograph or two on our web site Blog. Thanks again for making San Antonio your own very unique place to conduct missions. Please come back again.

    Sounds like everyone is working hard, playing hard and representing HBBC in a fine fashion.
    Prayers for my prayer partners and safe travels home.
