Homeless Bobby praises God for YOU!
Homeless Bobby rushed up to me while we were setting things up for our Saturday Mobile Homeless Street Ministry in the heat of the asphalt parking lot, excited beyond measure, praising God for YOU, who give your surplus
clothing, and YOU who collect it, and YOU who donate funds that fuel our ministry vehicles and pays the insurance costs, to pick up Food and Clothing donations that makes our Mobile Street Ministry possible. All of YOU!
You see, Homeless Bobby came last week to our Saturday Mobile Homeless Street Ministry…hopeless, beaten. He was Fed, Clothed, and encouraged by hearing God’s Word, that God’s love for Him by giving him the breath of life that very day, proved he had hope and a future in God…he responded to the Altar Call to repent and commit to doing things God’s way instead of his way.
Bobby’s new clothes and new shoes YOU PROVIDED for him, gave him the hope to go job searching after years of rejections…Bobby was hired Thursday, and is making $500 per week…I had him share his story with our Volunteers, and now I am sharing it with the world. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of Homeless and Hopeless men and women…Bobby Thanks YOU! If YOU Feed the Hungry, Clothe the Naked, Shelter the Homeless…thank you! If YOU Pray, Volunteer, Donate, Fund, Preach…we share equally in this fruit!
MORE PRECIOUS MEMORIES! SATURDAY JUNE 4, 2010
Never think the Homeless do not appreciate the nice clothes you donate for them…they do.
Volunteers from 7 area Churches enjoy a well earned few minutes sharing in the shade together after sorting and hanging clothes on the bus, preparing sack lunches, and getting the hot banquet food ready to serve, waiting on our Prayer time together before our service starts.
Former Homeless Volunteers from our Men’s Training Centers are serving hot coffee and the best ice water in town to our Homeless guests, who are listening to loud Praise and Worship!
God is already preparing Homeless hearts feeling loved by volunteers being God’s hands and feet.
11 Homeless seeking God…find Him!
Pastor Richard Gay, Clyde Beavers, Marshall Boates, and ladies, counsel and pray…
Share these blessings…help us help others any Saturday morning…make precious memories with your family that literally last for ETERNITY.
9 to Noon…rain or snow, on Drexel Street at 8th Ave South, Nashville
Prayer Requests and Praise!
1. Pray 1 minute weekly for this ministry! Pray on Saturday mornings if possible.
2. PRAY FOR GOD TO RAISE UP ALL THE HUMAN AND FINANCIAL RESOURCES WE NEED!
EXECUTIVE SALARIES…are you kidding me? None, zero, nobody is paid a dime in this ministry!
BUILDING FUND…wrong again…no buildings, we are a Mobile Homeless Street Ministry.
VEHICLE COSTS…Fuel, insurance, repairs, maintenance, license tags…road running depreciation.
CONSUMABLES…propane, peanut butter, lunch sacks, sandwich bags, coffee, creamer, drink cups, foil, cleaners, trash bags, dishwashing liquid, napkins…and only after those basic needs are met, then we need supplies for the homeless that we can buy in bulk, like personal hygiene kits, socks, underwear…and bottled water saves lives in the summer!
Our “budget” consists of “whatever comes in, spend it on the needy”, then we wait until more comes in to spend on the needy. We have always been a “zero sum” ministry, not a business. The needs are too great to “hold some money back for a rainy day” when it is always an emergency day in the War Zone! No “sinking fund” here, because it is the
Homeless that are sinking, dying brutal deaths daily on the Streets…God did not cause people to give to this ministry to build our savings or balance sheet, but to build His children a means of escape by rescuing them today! Ever confident HE will provide, has always been our faith walk.
3. PRAY FOR THOSE GOD CALLS TO DO SOMETHING FOR OR WITH THIS MINISTRY!
This ministry’s only source of donations of Food, Clothing, Shelter, and all funding is Private Donations from God’s blessed people, like you, from all types of Christian Churches across America, with no Government Funding
whatsoever…we actually pray with the needy, which disqualifies us from Government funding.
