Prayers for Miss D

Dear SoupFriends,

Greetings from the SoupMan!

The SoupMobile was founded in 2003 with a primary mission of 'Feeding the Homeless' in the Dallas area. In 2009 we expanded our mission to include sheltering the homeless in our program called SoupMobile Village . We now have seven group homes in Dallas which are specifically designed to take a homeless man, woman, or family right off the streets, put a roof over their heads, help them get a job, and eventually return them as working, productive members of the community. It's a 'Hand UP', not a 'hand out.'

Yesterday we admitted Miss D into one of the Women's Homes in SoupMobile Village. Normally that would not be a big deal. We regularly have women entering and graduating from our program. However, Miss D is different. Yes, she is homeless, but she also has Stage 3 Cancer.

Cancer of any kind is serious. Stage 3 is very serious. In addition to needing a lot of physical care, Miss D will need a lot of love. Most important she will need a lot of prayers. The Bible says that "With God all things are possible." I believe deeply in the power of prayer. The SoupMobile itself was founded in 2003 with prayers from a multitude of people.

The SoupMobile is not a medical facility. Nonetheless we are going to pull out all the stops to care for Miss D. We are partnering with Parkland Hospital to meet all of her medical needs. One thing the SoupMobile can and will provide in large quantities is Love. Misrak, our House Mother, is already hovering over Miss D like a Mother Hen. We've already had inquires from a lot of people offering to help. Right now what we need most are your prayers for Miss D.

Finally I want to thank YOU -- our donors, supporters, volunteers, friends, and prayer warriors for making SoupMobile Village a reality. It's because of YOU that the Village was founded in 2009 and it's because of YOU that we now have #7 homes up and fully operational. It's because of YOU that we can take in someone like Miss D, put a roof over her head, and provide her a safe and secure living environment and lots of love. From the bottom of my heart I thank you and I know Miss D does too.

May the Lord Bless & Keep You & Yours,

Signed, David Timothy, a.k.a. The SoupMan
