Back to School

The North Country Mission of Hope SM is a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation committed to fostering hope and empowering relationships with the people of Nicaragua through sustainable programs in education, healthcare, community and ecological sustainability and by supporting local, national or global areas impacted by disasters and poverty.

On behalf of the entire Mission of Hope Leadership team, I share the following with you:

Be advised the the Mission always has your best interest at heart. Therefore, our warehouse (MOHTown) will be closed until further notice.

Mission of Hope office staff will also be performing the bulk of our tasks from home. Thus, our Mission office is also closed. If you have an emergency need, please call my cell at 518-570-0560 or email me at [email protected]. Or if you or someone you know, needs a supportive word of hope, feel free to call me or pass my email and phone number on to them. Let’s all strive to find ways to be a support to those in need.

Please rest assured that all of our programs and projects to serve the most vulnerable poor continue.  It is my plan to continue to advise you over the coming weeks of what is unfolding within the Mission of Hope.

In the interim, we pray that you and your loved ones stay safe, especially our vulnerable elders and health compromised folks who are most at risk.  We offer our prayerful support to healthcare professionals who are on the front lines, to truckers, service and maintenance, and factory workers who have increased expectations due to needs, and to all education personnel as they strive to creatively respond to providing education to their students. We offer our prayers of peace to those who are frightened and anxious and worried…and let’s remember that our “children are watching”.

The prophet Jeremiah reminds us that we’ve been promised a “future full of Hope” and the Prophet Isaiah reminds us that we are “held in the palm of God’s hand”.  May we find comfort in these promises.

Finally, my Congregation Leadership of the Dominican Sisters of Hope began a meeting we had yesterday with the following video. Its message is a reminder that we are a global community and that joy and hope are transformative. I share it with you in the hope that you will share the light of faith, hope and love in the challenging and turbulent days ahead. Here’s the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pwe-pA6TaZk

Let’s “trip the light, break the night” and be HOPE today and everyday!

May you be filled with health, hope and peace of mind.
