Jake Cherry honored by NEISD (11-10-2017)

Last night, Jake Cherry, the President of the San Antonio Rescue Mission, was honored at a ceremony at San Antonio’s North East Independent School District’s (NEISD) Heroes Stadium with a plaque on their Wall of Heroes. The NEISD chose Jake who is a 1957 graduate of North East High School (now named MacArthur High School) as a model of servant leadership and commitment to the community for more than 40 years. District and school officials were present as well as Jake’s family members, friends, and SARM Board members. An article about the event on the NEISD website can be read HERE.  A short video was made last night by NEISD capturing the event and can be seen on YouTube HERE. Another video was made honoring Jake which can be viewed on YouTube HERE. More pictures of the event which were taken by NEISD and posted in Flickr, can be seen HERE. Jake was also honored at the football game later that night.

Congratulations, Jake for being a Hero in many ways, including NEISD’s Wall of Heroes!

SARM July 2017 aWoodland Baptist Church once again served their monthly meal on Friday, July 21st. The meal consisted of Cuban arroz con pollo (chicken with rice), black beans, watermelon, rolls, brownies and ice cream. There were 38 men plus the staff.  About 12 volunteers from the church came to serve and talk to the men, who really appreciated the home-cooked meal and camaraderie.

Thanks to Woodland for their faithful service to the men each month at the Mission.

Raleigh church brings joy (7-11-2017)

San Antonio Rescue Mission - June 28, 2017A youth group from Hayes Barton Baptist Church located in Raleigh, North Carolina conducted the worship service at the mission on Wednesday night, June 28. This wonderful and talented group of teenagers led prayers, singing, performed skits and conducted a short sermon for the men at the mission.  As always, the men at the mission really loved having youth come and conduct the worship service and demonstrate in so many ways how Jesus loves each of them as do their brothers and sisters in Christ.

The group was on a five-day mission to San Antonio and also visited the San Antonio Food Bank, Morningside Ministries of the Meadows, a retirement community, Haven for Hope and the Unicorn Center, a facility for developmentally disabled people. You can see pictures and read more on their web site HERE.  

MANY THANKS to the Hayes Barton Baptist Church youth for providing a wonderful evening for the men at our Mission.  The picture was provided by the Reverend Ward Page, Minister to Youth and College Students, who accompanied the group.
