150 Years demonstrating the Love of God with Actions and in Truth

11/14/2022

If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.  ~ 1 John 3:17-18 (NIV) 
 
As I reflect on 15 decades of healing and hope at The Methodist Home for Children and Youth, I am amazed by the many, many instances where you have loved our children with actions and in truth.   
 
Over the years, your giving spirit has made a huge difference in the lives of so many children.  Here are some examples: 

  • The elderly daughter who visited with her son and shared her mother lived here as a child, and accepted Christ here…and because of this place, the daughter and grandson were raised as Christians in a loving home environment. 
  • The two rambunctious brothers who arrived from a home where care was lacking… one obtained his PhD and served as a MinisterAuthor and Counselor, the other served as a Naval Officer and had a 30-year corporate career
  • The young lady who just needed a safe stable home and is now a Deputy Sheriff, married, mother of two and provided kinship care for others in need. 
  • The teenage boy who came to us drifting with no sense of purpose or direction…now a fine young Marine serving our country with pride and dignity. 
  • The successful, talented Administrative Professional who, after she graduated from The Methodist Home, worked for a big CEO of a huge company and left a large bequest that made a difference here

And so many more…nurses, social workers, teachers, church leaders, business owners…fathers, mothers, grandparents…. members of so many communities across our state and nation.  I am so proud of all our Alumni and the many successes they have achieved.  
 
YOU and those before you, have shown them love through your amazing, steadfast support.   
 
YOU have prayed, volunteered, given sacrificially and some even named The Methodist Home as a beneficiary of their will to continue our ministry into the next generation.   
 
YOU have stepped up, filled the gap, and demonstrated your compassion and kindness to those in need with actions and in truth.   
 
Thanks be to GOD for YOU and the vital part you have in our work.  Thank YOU for loving and nurturing our children.   
 
WE need YOU to commit to this legacy now more than ever.  Please wrap your arms around us and carry us into the next 150 years!
