Threshold to New Life

Bridging temporary gaps in people's lives

We LOVE Rotary Clubs!

Deb Nygaard Roseville Rotary with Richard & Carla Bahr 2019-06

Our founders, Carla and Richard Bahr, have been provided the opportunity to speak to four Rotary Clubs in 2019 (so far). We LOVE their purpose-based approach, involving community and serving others as the means to work on solving big, global problems such as fighting disease and providing clean water in developing nations.

The most recent talk was at the Roseville Club where they shared about this ministry and how they got involved in serving others. Richard’s most recent book, Those People, was also promoted and sold with all proceeds going to this ministry.

Partnering with others is the best way to work on BIG problems – like housing and homelessness.

Thank you also to the Blaine/Ham Lake, Orono, Brooklyn Park for your willingness to host us and for your care for “the least of these”.

The June 2019 issue of Maple Grove magazine, features the work Threshold to New Life does in the community, and aims to inspire others to step in and serve “the least of these”, as Carla and Richard Bahr have committed to doing for the past several years.

It covers their approach to being a small but vital part of helping those in the homeless community and their efforts to reduce homelessness by providing aid to those at risk of losing their current housing.

We’re grateful to the editor and publisher for choosing to tell this story.

Blankets!

Blankets from Grace Fellowship 2019

Our great partners, Grace Fellowship in Brooklyn Park, made tie blankets for the elderly AND had some remaining, so what’s the first thing they thought of?

Our local homeless folks.

We’ll distribute these at Project 6:8 on Tuesday nites and any left over we’ll provide to Salvation Army Harbor Light in Minneapolis.

Thank you!

“The Chill Sisters”

Chill Sisters 2018-12

Once in a while you receive such encouragement you just can’t keep it to yourself.

We received this greeting card and seven individual personal checks providing encouragement and monetary support to our organization. We have had no contact with any of these ladies before. Apparently, one of them saw our story in the mass media and shared it with the others. Here’s their words:

“Our group “The Chill Sisters” every Christmas for 42 years have been together and support a cause. Your story and the lives you are changing is inspirational. Assisting people prior to being homeless and helping those who are overcome spoke to our hearts. God has been a very big part of all of our lives. We love to spread his love for all people. Helping your fellow man is important to us. God Bless! Thank you for what you’re doing.”

May God bless these ladies. We’re SO thankful for their assistance and encouragement. Lives will be changed due to their efforts.

Merry Christmas to all!

Awesome Christmas!

Project 68 Xmas 2018

Our friends at Project 6:8 hosted their 11th annual Christmas Party for our “family” that meets every Tuesday night under the 394 bridge just west of Dunwoody College in Minneapolis at 7 pm.

Each week a warm, home-cooked meal is served (often including desert!) and great fellowship is had. We continue onto a local restaurant holding a bible study until 9 pm.

It’s a simply ministry that doesn’t try to solve all of life’s problems, but simply come along side people, love them where they’re at and provide from what we have.

Kristi and Adam Betker do a wonderful job along with their board and all the volunteers that keep this operating and loving on “the least of these“.

Merry Christmas!

Personal Care Kits to be Distributed on Thanksgiving

We have much to be grateful for at Thanksgiving, nevertheless all days of the year. We’re expressing our gratitude by distributing 125 personal care kits at our daily, morning breakfast held by 2.4 Ministries at The Salvation Army Harbor Light facility in Minneapolis. Bombas, the sock manufacturer, donated another 1,000 pairs of socks that we’ll provide over the course of this winter, and each kit has a pair.

Rain Ponchos Distributed

Did you notice it was raining A LOT lately? How do you get out of the rain when you’re homeless? We lack a real great answer for this, but we did purchase and distribute A LOT of rain ponchos this past week in the various homeless communities we serve.
