It's been a while since our last blog post but please know we are not sitting idle. We have had over four years of consistently bringing hope through the gospel and basic hygiene and clothing needs to our areas homeless men and women. We have thoroughly appreciated and covet your prayers, financial and volunteer support, and encouragement along the way.
Earlier in 2015, after much prayer and deliberation, we determined our calling has changed a bit. We are all parents of young children and feel a strong push to shift our focus to inner-city children – specifically at Heritage Academy. We aren't exactly sure what this will look like, but it will more than likely be some type of mentoring program. It will be for a specific grade of boys initially, but our hoping goal would be that other men will join us and cover these children in every class in the school.
We are still making periodic visits downtown to some of our regulars and hope to pass this mission along to another group. We have a lot of momentum and have laid a lot of the ground work for the homeless side of our ministry. A lot of hard work, effort and progress is invested and it would be ideal for a transition to occur there.
We will keep you posted as these tentative plans become reality and look forward to your continued support going forward.
God is good. Jesus is Love!
