There are people in America that face an intense need and are often overlooked: people without homes.
When you first hear that word “homeless”, does the stereotypical visual of a disheveled person standing at an intersection holding a “Will work for food sign” cross your mind? The reality is much broader and includes people that “look normal”… even families with small children. These people without homes are right in our path, in our churches…but often their stares of despair and hopelessness are surpassed.
Truth #1: My Hope America is not limited to people with homes. The homeless can be reached, too.
A member of My Hope America staff recently had a meeting with leaders of the Rescue Missions across the country.
He shares, “I was introduced to a couple that run a rescue mission in Nogales, AZ (right on the border of Mexico) and want to host a large youth night with the My Hope program. I also learned of Rescue Missions in New York, Florida, California, Iowa, Nebraska, and Washington that are very excited about using My Hope to share the Gospel while serving the needy and showing the love of Christ. ”
Truth #2: We are all needy. We are ALL in need of a Savior. His name is Jesus.
Call to Action: Pray that the Lord will provide you the opportunity to share his love with someone in need today! We’d love to hear your story in the comments below.
Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Psalm 82:4
