Hard to say goodbye

How lucky we are to have known someone who is so hard to say goodbye to…

Turning to a new chapter brings mixed emotions – the confusing culmination of loss with anticipation.  But, face a new chapter we must from time to time, as the “Author and Perfecter of our faith” continues to write our stories.

Justin Danielson served as a dear friend and excellent member of the Board of Directors since 2011.  Prior to that, his family served as Relief Houseparents from 2006-2008.  Justin combined his voice of experience with his heart of a pastor to guide the Board toward great decisions.  He and his family invested their time and talents to make the ministry a wonderful place, cheering on the athletes, encouraging the children and staff at Show-Me, and championing the value of this mission in the community.
God called the Danielsons to serve with the Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky.  While the new adventure brings excitement, we mix that with our sadness to have to say “goodbye.”  They will touch lives for the Kingdom there and we will forever be grateful for the fingerprints they left all over our lives at Show-Me.

To Our Booster Friends…

Love is not a feeling. Love is a commitment.

As any parent may tell you, real love isn’t shown in a boutique of flowers, a box of chocolates, or even a diamond ring.  REAL LOVE is found in the Mom who is up at 2 am with a scared child or a Dad who makes sure to be in the stands cheering at their daughter’s game.  Love is an action that says “you matter and are valued.”

To try and demonstrate to some of our Elementary students at Show-Me just how much they are loved, we showed them the large stacks of responses that Show-Me received when we sent our Boosters a request.

And, what does that mean to the kids?  Well, click on the video above and hear for yourself if it makes a difference!


Who is a Booster?

Boosters are a special kind of Show-Me hero – individuals, families, and groups who voluntarily give Show-Me permission to “let them know when we’re running low” or have a special, unbudgeted need.  

As a member of the “Come Thru Crew,” Boosters go above and beyond.  They are ready at anytime to answer our call for help to support the children who call Show-Me “home” by standing in the gap as a faithful source of stability through prayer and financial support.

Do you have what it takes to be a hero to children?  Then, sign up to become a Booster today!
