We asked staff, volunteers and residents to share a few of thoughts on gratitude.
"I am grateful that there's a place where guys who want to change their life can come and begin that process." -Jerry, UGM Staff
"I'm most thankful that I serve an awesome God who's a wild man. Who gave us undeserved love, grace, mercy. But most importantly, He gave us His son without whom we would have no salvation." -John, UGM Men's Shelter
"I'm thankful for my grandkids." –Shelly, UGM Staff
"I'm thankful for everything...I'm thankful for God's unconditional love." –Charlonne, UGM Staff
"My sister has cancer, but it's in remission. And her husband also has cancer. So, I'm thankful that they’re both [alive]." -Kent, UGM Men's Shelter
"I'm thankful for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Union Gospel Mission brought me back to God and all the people who support it." –Will, UGM Volunteer
“I am grateful to be able to walk into a building called the Union Gospel Mission and have everyone that works here help people like me. It took me about 8 months of living here to understand that things come easier when you’re not on drugs and have the Lord in you!” –Troy, UGM Thrift Store Employee
“I’m thankful that even though a tree fell through our house, no one I love was hurt in the windstorm last week.” –Aeriell, UGM Staff
