INCLEMENT WEATHER CLOSING
Please be advised that MUST Day Services follow the same
guidelines as the Cherokee County Schools System for inclement
weather. If Cherokee County Schools are closed due to inclement
weather then MUST Day Services will be CLOSED.




Homeless Count
It is time once again to count those in our community living in
homelessness. This count is very important because it enables us to
define and highlight the scope of homelessness in Cherokee County and
can perhaps lead to future funding to assist this population. The point in
time count will happen tomorrow, January 25th, 3:30-6:00 pm. We are still
in need of volunteers, particularly Spanish speakers. If you are interested
in volunteering please contact Kendall Jones at 678-218-4507 or at
kjones@mustministries.org, or show up tomorrow at 3:30 pm in the MUST
parking lot.



                Donation Needs
                    We are in immediate need of small space heaters to
                     help meet the needs of our clients. If you can donate
                       these items or solicit others for these items it would
                        be appreciated.
                        The Elizabeth Inn shelter is in need of towels,
                       washcloths and shower shoes. Contact Craig
                      Washington at 678-218-4489 if you can help with
                    this need.

             In Heaven’s Eyes
A fervent prayer rose up to heaven, a fragile soul is losing ground.
Sorting through this earthly babble, heaven heard the sound.
This was a life with no distinction, no successes, only tries.
Yet gazing down on this unlovely one, there was love in heaven’s eyes.

In heaven’s eyes there are no losers, in heaven’s eyes no hopeless
cause.
Only people like you, with feelings like me, amazed by the grace we can
find
In heaven’s eyes.
