Think about what Christ has already done for you. He is your advocate, your mediator, your hope. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, ” He who knew no sin became sin for us so that we could become the righteousness of God!” He didn’t just take away our sin and mediate on our behalf. He became sin on our behalf! Through Him, we are now seen as righteous before God! He takes our place, we get to take His! As we put our hope in Jesus, He now lives in us. God does not see our mess, He sees perfection. We have been justified before Him! Do not feel unworthy to come into the presence of God. Christ has made you worthy with His blood and His sacrifice!
Last week we mentioned that one of the men in the ministry, Kyle, had gone home to be with the Lord. We will be having his homecoming celebration/memorial on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 1:30 pm at the Garden. Please join us if you are able to celebrate his life here on Earth and his homecoming back to Jesus!
The ministry is growing. We are moving forward to advance the Kingdom! God continues to amaze us and show up! Recently, we opened up a new home for the men in the ministry as our leadership home. The house was donated to us and we are so excited to see the fruit that comes from it and the lives that are transformed through it. In order to get it ready for the guys to move in, we had to invest about $10,000 into repairs and maintenance. We have been given another home which needs much work also and are suspecting it will take about the same amount. If God lays it on your heart to help us with these provisions, we would be grateful! Monetary contributions as well as supplies are needed. If you know or have connections with someone at Home Depot or other building supply stores, let us know! We had a group from FL in last weekend and this weekend, we have a team all the way from Michigan in. We are moving into a busy couple of weeks with Spring Breaks coming along and will have groups from all over! This will help prepare us for the summer where we will be out on the streets, feeding over 600 people a day, almost every day of the week! Praise God! He entrusts us with so many souls that we get to teach how to be missionaries and show them how to love! Please be praying for us. The warfare is intense right now and but we stand victorious through Jesus and will not back down! Lord willing, we will have another update next week! Until then, be blessed and highly favored!!!!!
