Currently in need of any help I can get.
Thank you for all that you do. It is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the blessing you are.
At the heart of it all is the mission. What we want to do at the Torch and 180 is to help other people. We want to give them hope that things can get better, and to remind them that right now, in the midst of their struggles, they are worth our time, effort, sweat, tears, and work. We want to take steps of faith that leave people without a doubt that they are important and loved.
And sometimes we need to hear, to be reminded and made aware, that we are helping - that what we do is needed and appreciated. We are filled, blessed and encouraged by the messages we often receive. We read them. We talk about them. We pray over them. And they humble us.
And we do remember, because not that long ago, we were there. We were searching for help, and absorbing the tiniest crumbs of hope that were scattered our way. We were longing for the touch from another human being which would gently remind us that we mattered, too, no matter how far down we were. We cherished those moments as much as we cherish the moments now, when people are helped and blessed by what we do.
Faith, love, and hope fuel and inspire us at the Torch. We believe people matter and that belief informs our actions and decisions. We are thankful and humbled we have the opportunity to live out what we believe. We know we are blessed, so incredibly blessed.
