I'm Doug Bushman, Director of Retail Ministries at Hope Outreach Thrift Store in Enid, OK.
As 2017 comes and races on, I want to thank all our customers and donors for your generosity and prayers.
In addition to supporting the other ministries of Hope Outreach the thrift store's internal employment ministry is a vital, dynamic effort. We seek God's direction to engaging a team of individuals who are hoping either to minister to others or need a helping hand to empower them to more responsible living. Many times it's a portion of both helping and being helped.
Each staffer has their own life experience and for the most part their stories are understandably kept private. Please suffice it to know your support helps many obtain a new direction and new opportunity to live empowered vs. enabled. It is an incredible privilege to see the His work in many who decide to make the most of new opportunities put before them.
We are thankful to a gracious and merciful God who has approved and blessed this ministry for many years.
