I want to encourage you if you are older and feel as though you may have wasted your life and it's too late..well, it's not too late!
The laborers in the gospel...who did not begin to work until the 11th hour, received the same wages as those who had worked longer, because in their zeal they had done as much in the last hour, as the others during the whole day.
St. Chrysostom says: "At the 11th hour are called those who are advanced in age."
This parable is intended to encourage those who did not reform until they were older, that they may not think that their happiness in heaven will not be as great as that of others.
Christ gave this parable to comfort not only the aged, but all those who have been negligent in the service of the Most High.
Such folks should employ all their strength to serve the Lord, in order to repair, in a short time, what they have neglected. They will surely gain eternal life by acting thus.
St. Chrysostom said that the older we are or the nearer we are, for other reasons, to eternity, the more eagerly must we run along the way to Heaven
Sending our love and prayers to our remnant family...

Here is a post, from a recipient of what we do,.
L**** and I were one of the precipitants of This mission. She is right. My parking was 9 per day for 3 months. Then on top of that food cost me approximately 15 per day. That was cheap - I got vouchers for $5.00 per meal. So somedays I did not eat or made meals last for more then one meal. Had to. Parking was $810. Food was $1,300. Then you have normal household bills and I have 3 animals I had to pay to have people come and take care of them. At first I had my dog in the Kennel for 1/2 the time. That was about 500. It is VERY expensive to have a sick child. That was Just ONE hospital stay. We have had numerous ones. Some only a few days, some a week or two. Without their help we would of gone fully under!
From providing necessary funds to actually having families stay with us...we DO what we say we do!
