Read a recent “thank-you” message delivered to Hyde Park by Kathy McGartland, Mission Smiles Program Manager:
Generosity, a willingness to give your time to others
Understanding, because their lives might be very different from your own
Empathy, an ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and feel what they must feel
Compassion, to truly care about making someone else’s life better
Patience, because the process doesn’t always go as smoothly as it might
Dedication, to stick with the project and see it through
You’ve shown these qualities and so much more, so thank you for all that you do.
We are thankful to be a partner in ministry with Mission Smiles. It is through the support of the people at Hyde Park United Methodist that Mission Smiles is able to help make God’s love real in this way.
