Triple Your Gift!
As 2016 comes to an end, I would like to thank you for your generous support of the Missionary Oblates. I also want to make you aware of a special opportunity to TRIPLE THE IMPACT of your End of Year gift.
Recently a donor set up a matching gift program with the Oblates. For every $1 you donate at this time, he will donate an additional $2 to the Oblates. What a tremendous opportunity to impact the lives of the poor in Oblate missions next year!
In 2017 Fr. Vincenzo Bordo, O.M.I. will be expanding his outreach to the homeless in Suwon, South Korea. Father Vincenzo is the founder of Anna’s House. Last year his soup kitchen distributed 83,880 meals, and his medical clinic treated 3,000 patients. Amazingly, Fr. Vincenzo didn’t think he was making enough of an impact. So he started an additional ministry, reaching out to homeless youth. Father Vincenzo admits, “Yes, we are a bit crazy.”
Most nights Fr. Vincenzo and his team pack up a minibus and journey into “no man’s land.” From 7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. they meet with troubled teenagers. Some of the young people move into four homes run by Anna’s House where they are given shelter, food, schooling, job training and counseling.
“Since we began this program my sleep has been terribly shortened – but my life has been infinitely lengthened onto new horizons,” said Fr. Vincenzo. “In this gloomy and brutal ‘no man’s land,’ where it seems there is no room even for God, we have found a new face of God.”
Every day Fr. Vincenzo is making an impact in the lives of the poor. I ask that today you make a gift that will TRIPLE THE IMPACT of your support of Missionary Oblates who work in “no man’s lands” around the world.
