:People who are willing to pray for a miracle for the mission. If you are this person please give us a call at 2234313 and we can discuss some vital personal prayer request that we have for the mission.
if you are one or all of these people please do not hesitate to give us a call or email us. email@example.com. 8072234313
Thank you in advance for giving to the Lord.

Previous OVER NIGHT PROGRAM
From 2012 -2018 the Dryden Mission offered an Over Night Program that was available for those who were homeless, Because we were not permitted to use our building as a shelter, we made arrangements with a local Motel that they always had a few rooms at our disposal for the purpose of allowing people who came to us in need of a place or the night to stay. The Dryden Mission paid for this expense of accommodation throughout this time. There were many times that The Dryden Mission were called from the Motel because of damage that was done to the rooms that we were occupying. We repaired many rooms over the years and came to the decision that the financial cost was much more than what we were able to afford at that time. Unfortunately we had to discontinue it. Over the 7 years of providing this service we were able to assist over 200 different people in over night accommodations. This is one of the reasons that we are working toward opening our Café space for a warming centre for those in need of warmth in the winter and cooing in the summer. However, we must have a washroom available for this program. Again, we welcome anyone to drop in to see the space and the potential of offering this program.

UPDATE - January 25, 2022
Dear Mission Partner
This the past month of January, we have been very blessed. We've had the time to reminisce of yester year and look ahead to the future. As we plan for tomorrows, we are asking you to join in prayer with us in seeking the perfect will of God for the future of The Dryden Mission. We want to be certain of where our Heavenly Father is leading is. Please consider seeking the Lord with us in the next month of February for His direction.
What we know for sure is that we need volunteers as always. Volunteers to assist in sorting items as they come in, purging old items, displaying new items, putting items online, general cleaning of retail side, offering a helpful hand and word and prayer to someone in need.
We are currently trying to raise $8500.00 to install and build a washroom in the main floor in the Café space. Once we secure a washroom we are working towards opening our Café space to those who need a warm place during the day time. We want to offer a hot drink and something to sustain them for the day. During the summer we will again offer the Café as a cooling off place. However, none of this is possible without a washroom on the main floor. Please consider donating financially to the Washroom Fund. We want to get this up ASAP! We will need assistance (volunteers) in actually building the three wall structure of the washroom.
We also need volunteers in taking garbage to the dump, using their own vehicle.
There is a group of ladies who meet Fridays at 11 o'clock in the cafe who have lost their husbands. They comfort and check up on each other and we are so blessed to have them as part of our ministry family. If you feel like dropping in sometime, please feel free.
As we continue to seek God we ask again that you consider praying with us and for us and being part of our ministry. Thank you so much for your love and support that you have shown over the years. This year we start our 11th year of ministry here in Dryden. We are looking forward to see what God has in store.
