The “Water for Life Now Ministry” was truly blessed today with the addition of (2) dedicated persons who share the same passion in reaching out to the homeless in Tampa Bay .
NC and EM, mother and daughter-in-law were more than willing to make 60 sandwiches, and 97 Muffins for the cause of feeding the hungry.
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you? If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, "Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill," and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? So faith by itself, if it has not works, is DEAD.
James 2:14-17 NRSV
The day started out later than normal: but God who is Sovereign knew why we had to get there at the time we did. We were able to feed and minister to more persons than we normally do. They were very, very grateful for all the efforts that we put into going to see them.
There was a young man that was so broken. He could not look at me, I could not get him to receive from us……this was obviously something “new” he has never encountered before. I did not insist, I simply stepped aside and began praying for him.
We were able to see some of the regulars, that we see every week.
John whom I’d mentioned before celebrated his 31st birthday, on Saturday January 28th and, was still celebrating when we saw him. Please continue to pray for John. He has been locked into the spirit of homosexuality since the age of 9 years old: but we all know that GOD is able to do a miracle in John’s life. John told us sometime ago that he knows in his heart that GOD wants to use him in the ministry…please PRAY.
There is such a burden for these people, and it will take continuing, persevering prayers to get them to see themselves loved by the Almighty GOD. They need to know that GOD has a plan for each of their lives, and they are very special in HIS eyes.
