We live in challenging times and with the uncertainty that abounds surrounding COVID-19, each one of us experiences a level of relative anxiousness. At the Eastern Christian Children’s Retreat, our facility has been placed under tight restrictions with only essential staff arriving to work. Yet, the dedication from our employees has been overwhelming as they remain selflessly committed to our special and vulnerable population. I am daily reminded of Christ’s words when He says, “Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” -Matthew 25:40.
With many of our residents being more immuno-compromised than ever before, it’s critical to have the necessary tools to protect and care for them. This includes personal protective gear, oxygen concentrators, enhanced respiratory equipment and other essential supplies.
To this end, I am asking that you would consider making a financial contribution to The Retreat. As never before, your assistance is needed and any gift is greatly appreciated. We remember that our hope is ultimately dependent on God who has said, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” – Hebrews 4:16
Please continue to keep our residents, families and staff in prayer as we go through this storm together, trusting that all things will work to His glory.
