Helping the Homeless
For over six months our church has entered into an agreement to supply the Phoenix Rescue Mission with lunches from the Hope Coach one day a month. A former homeless drug dealer whom God rescued takes a van each day to the places in Phoenix where the homeless gather to speak to them and give them a bag lunch and offer more help when he can.
We gather in our office and make 250 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, with prezels, cookies, and our own personal note of encouragement. Its a small step, but for us it puts shoes on the gospel. We also deliver bottled water which is life here to those who live outside. The volunteers have a great time and the personal satisfaction for me is profound, when I see all this happening.
