Isaiah 9:6 says, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Merry Christmas from your friends at Union Gospel Mission. Jesus truly is the reason for the season. He is our hope in this world and our free gift of salvation; thank you Jesus!
The focus of this Christmas edition of Voices from the Street is our Vision 20/20. This initiative focuses on being good stewards of what God has entrusted to us as a Mission by maintaining and upgrading the four ministry buildings in Winnipeg.

Christmas time is a time when many people gather with family and friends to celebrate Jesus coming into the world. However, in the seven ministries that we work in, we find that this time of the year is especially hard for the people who we work with, as they find themselves in situations where they do not have healthy relationships with loved ones. Please pray for those we serve, that God would comfort them and most importantly that they would invite Jesus into their hearts.
Our prayer is that Jesus would fill your hearts and minds in a very real way this Christmas season as you celebrate Jesus’s birth.
