A FEW UPDATES-
Saturdays have changed a bit for us…we are still meeting at 1:00 in Downtown Monroe and have added a Community Service project to each week’s agenda. This past weekend we spent 20-30 minutes walking around the block picking up trash, cigarette butts, and all kinds of other fun dirty stuff. Our homeless guys took pride in helping clean up the city and for us it was a fun time to spend together. Up next….weeding flower beds!
We are continuing our Sunday church service at 10:30am. Serving no breakfast at this event has proved to be a very pleasant morning focused on God. Brandon challenged the guys to be very interactive yesterday morning and share their struggles with us. It was a safe place for them to tell us what was going on in their lives and a time for them to be heard. If you were there, remember the faces and stories…and pray. If you were not there, pray for jobs to open and families to be reconciled and for minds to be focused on good things.
Don’t forget, Mondays are our day of Prayer and Fasting! Each Monday fast as you feel led and pray for our homeless, our city, and the Simple Project! Specifically, this week give thanks to God for those who support our organization and mission. There are many people that I and our volunteers have spoken to recently who agree with our work, spoken on our behalf and given us great encouragement! GIVE THANKS
