The Resurrection says, you can put the Truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there!

“For if we have been united with Him in a death like His, we will certainly also be united with Him in a resurrection like His.”
Romans 6:5 NIV

During Resurrection week at HHYD we taught the youth about the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ and what it meant personally for each of us.

Spring Break – Kids Club

During our kids club on April 6, the younger kids went to a movie and we had a fire truck and recycling workshop with the Minneapolis Fire Department, including Assistant Fire Chief Melanie Rucker, the Minneapolis Police Department, including Police Chief Brian O’Hara, and a special guest Rusty Recycling.

Employee Spotlight

Clara ‘Missie” Mothershed

I grew up in North Minneapolis a few blocks away from Hospitality House. I have one son who is currently serving in the US Army and a Grandbaby, Sophia. I am an HH alumna, and I liked the fact that we were cared for and nurtured in our faith, traveled, and learned the value of volunteerism. I even played my favorite sport at HH, which is football. We played Flag football.

My role at HHYD is the Development Director. I like working at HHYD because it gives me the opportunity to work in the community and at the place that has shaped me into the person I am today.

The best piece of advice I would give to teens is to stay true to yourself, but always look to God and the scriptures to confirm who you are. My mom told me, “don’t let anyone pick your shade tree.” Meaning don’t always follow your friends, be a leader.

I like Gospel and Old School music. I am looking forward to enjoying life this summer and seeing what God has for me. But my wish would be travel to Florida to see my son, Eric and my Yaya baby (granddaughter) Sophia who is going to be 9 years old soon.

Favorite quote:
“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” Albert Einstein

My favorite scripture:
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not parish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
