Niagara Gazette — Smith hopes his mission can attract community members looking for a way to serve. "We're a conduit for the local churches who (have members) want to work with the poor," he said.
He looked around at the house which holds the mission, including a long table set with chairs in the dining room, the kitchen busy with several volunteers cooking a meal, and several residents moving about the house or seated on the porch. "The light of the Lord shines best in the darkest places," he said with a smile, then he quoted from the sign that's often placed on the front lawn, advertising the feel daily meals: "... he who feeds on this bread will live forever."
