An Essential Message of Hope

Promise MagazineLast year we introduced a guiding document called Forward in Faith to lead us into our second century of service. Two statements have been especially powerful:

  • •“Together with those we serve and their families, dedicated  supporters, the church and community partners, Mosaic is passionate about making a difference in the world.
  • “Our mission has never been about buildings or programs – it has always been about people and making a difference in the world.”

In today’s world, this is an essential message of hope. We are a good news story in a world filled with much sin and sadness. 

After watching or reading the news, we may feel hopeless,  wondering in prayer what we can do to make a difference.

But there is so much hope and goodness in the world. I see the difference that Mosaic employees are making for people. I see the difference that volunteers are making for people. Mostly, I see the joy in the faces of those we serve and their families.

Mosaic is fundamentally a ministry of service to the world. 

When we make one person’s life better, we make the world a better place. I am not diminishing the suffering of people in our world; I pray for them daily. But I know where I can make a  difference, and I am grateful for that opportunity to be a part of Mosaic.

Thanks to the work of so many, Mosaic is making a difference. 

It is exciting to see the growing independence of many of the people we serve. We know that, with the right supports, people with disabilities can lead full lives in the community. They don’t need to be taken care of as much as they need support to make their own decisions and choose their own way in life – pretty much like you or me. That is making a difference.

Your support of Mosaic by prayer, advocacy, and gifts, is changing the world – one life at time.

Thank you for being a partner of this mission.
