Room at the Inn

Dear SoupFriends,

Greetings from the SoupMan!

Believe it or not, Christmas is just around the corner. I remember as a child that it seemed as if Christmas would never get here. Now as an adult, it seems like Christmas comes faster each year.

If you are homeless, Christmas is nothing special. It’s a day, just like any other day. A day spent trying to find food and shelter. A day without a Christmas tree, no traditional dinner with all the fixings and no warm conversation with your family members by the fireplace. Christmas for a homeless person is typically a day without joy, without love and without hope.

Fortunately there are exceptions to every rule. 2,000 years ago there was no 'Room at the Inn' for baby Jesus. In honor of Jesus and to celebrate his birthday, the SoupMobile makes sure the homeless in Dallas have a magical Christmas every year. This year marks the SoupMobile's 6th Annual Celebrate Jesus Christmas event. We will be taking 500 homeless men and women right off the streets of Dallas and putting them up at the downtown Dallas Hyatt Regency Hotel for Christmas. They will all receive new clothes, fabulous gifts, lots of love and we will hold a huge banquet in their honor. Most important is that when they wake up on Christmas morning, it will be in a warm, safe bed at the Hyatt---not in a cardboard box under some bridge.

Would you like to be a part of this magical Christmas? Would you like to step out in faith and help us touch homeless lives this Christmas in a way that you have never done before? Would you like for your own life to be touched in a powerful way. You can't do anything about baby Jesus getting locked out 'of the inn' 2,000 years ago, but you can do something to make sure 500 of HIS sheep have the most magical Christmas of their lives. This is your chance to go beyond your own 'traditional' Christmas and reach deep into the heart of the homeless world. This is your chance to move out of your own comfort zone and help 500 homeless men and women. This is your chance to make a 'real difference' in this world.

For more details on how to VOLUNTEER at our Celebrate Jesus event or to make a DONATION to support the event, simply go to This much we can promise you. Volunteering at the SoupMobile's 6th Annual Celebrate Jesus Christmas event will NOT be the best volunteer opportunity of the year for you. What it will be is the best volunteer opportunity of your Life. When you see the tears in the eyes of our homeless guests and the smiles on their faces, you heart will be touched in a way it has never been touched before.

May the Lord Bless & Keep you.

p.s. Looking for that perfect Christmas stocking stuffer? The SoupMan’s 2nd book, “God is NOT on Vacation!” is now out and available exclusively on Do you believe in miracles? You just might after reading this book, which time and again points to the glory and majesty of the Lord.
