"Serving God's People"
"Greater is HE that is in me, than he that is in the WORLD"
It has been a long 6 months of this pandemic. Everyone has been impacted in some way or another by what’s going on around the world. I pray that you and your family are well.
I want to stop for a moment to say thank you to so many who have been supporting the ministry since COVID-19 first hit. Some of you may not know it, but we are feeding over 600 plus people weekly on the streets, men’s shelters and hotels, out the back of my SUV truck. We are averaging about 3,000 meals a month. Serving hot food and giving them snacks, desserts and drinks to complete their meals.
We make sure that those who do not have a place to stay have a tent. So far, we have given out over 75 tents and helped those who have a tent with a plastic tarp to keep the rain out. We supply all our people with a pair of socks and a toiletry kit to those who need it. So many of our people need blankets, so we supply those who sleep on the ground or in tents a heavy blanket and sometimes a pillow. Thus far, we have collected over 700 blankets and have passed all of them out within the last 6 months.
The numerous pairs of shoes, umbrellas and t-shirts that have been donated or purchased by the ministry have been such a blessing to so many.
Right now, we are serving over 50 families, some with children, some just husband & wife who are homeless. A more then average number of seniors and veterans.
So many have no clue what to do or what their next move is supposed to be. So many have never been in this situation before and they don’t know the “street rules” to be safe or how to survive.
There is this one family who has been on the streets for 1 week now. The husband and wife are in their 40’s and a 10-year-old daughter. They live in a tent and have no support whatsoever. They both lost their jobs and their home. When I met them, I knew they had no clue who to trust or what to do. They were very hungry and cold. We offered them some food, they were hesitant, but I smiled at them and said, “it’s okay.” They read our t-shirts that say, “Lady T’s Homeless Ministry” “Serving God’s People” and they became comfortable with us and very glad for any blessing that we had.
Before we left them, after we were sure they were full, we gave them each a blanket, toiletry kits, socks, books to read, stuff animal for the daughter (that made her so happy), t-shirts and more. They just kept on thanking us for blessing them.
In the next couple of days, when we came back by to check on them, they knew my name and couldn’t wait to see what we had for them. We were able to give them a resource to check out so they could get off the streets. I pray that next week when we go out, they will not be home, but gone to a better place of refuge or a hotel to stay in.
My point is this, all that we do is because of the many, many, many donations that come from you our supporters. Thank you to those who make all the peanut butter & jelly sandwiches weekly, Mike Brown monthly water donations, Berean Christian Church, Christian Fellowship Baptist, Clairmont Presbyterian Church, Global Christian Church, The Way The Truth and The life Christian Center, The Greater Solid Rock Baptist Church, H.O.M.E., Inc., The Master Masons of LaVista, Global Community Christian Church, all our friends from Cash App and Pay Pal, plus our monthly pledgers and all who just give from their hearts. We are so appreciative of all your generosity and all your many prayers.
Please continue to support this ministry and pray that God will continue to bless us and keep us healthy to be His servants. Amen!!!
Stay safe and sanitized. PLEASE VOTE….IT’S YOUR RIGHT!!!!
