Homeless Outreach Ministry



I would like to thank my dear friend, Carol Jean, for lovingly making HUNDREDS of these beautiful John 3:16 cards.  They will be utilized in a neighboring community of mine, Manchester, NH.   I will be giving them to my friend and brother in Christ, Henry Demers.

Henry established a special place called Harmony Home, which provides basic needs for the homeless four days per week.  They not only receive practical things they need, but are also able to access Godly counsel there, attend chapel services, and hear the message of the love of Christ.  Henry is also involved in street ministry outreach each month, and some of these cards will also be utilized there.  Henry is a Godly man who loves on people as Jesus asks us to do.   I am thankful for him, and the ministry he provides.

As a group, we will continue to seek to be a blessing to his ministry, and create with the goal of loving people to Jesus, one person at a time.  We pray that these cards will help to plant seeds in lives and point people to our loving Savior.  If you receive a care and visit our blog here, please scroll down to see the Gospel message.  If you see this and are already a Christian, please join with us in prayers that God will use our gifts to shine the love of Christ.  That’s our heart’s desire.

Blessings and love to all,
Kim

More from 'O Come Let Us Adorn Them' Event

On Dec. 3rd, 2016, my sister and I had the privilege of attending 'O Come Let Us Adorn Them', an outreach to the homeless in Manchester, NH.

Several amazing friends participated in this, assisting me with the items, with such love shown, you would have thought these precious homeless folks were their own neighbors. I will be posting a couple more testimonies in the days to come. For each testimony that touched us personally, I decided I wanted to do a journal page for each to seal those sweet memories in my mind.
Feather Rae Reed is an amazing young lady with a heart after God. She joined our ministry awhile ago now, and she is full of love for others, and she creates straight from her heart with joy! It is evident in her work. Very much so, and I am so proud of her!

There was a woman who walked by our table that day. She was clearly homeless. The only thing she had with her was an old purse with holes in it. When my sister and I greeted her, we told her the types of things that were available at our table. She shook her head and said, "No. I don't believe in that kind of thing". She thanked us anyway. There were so many people that she kind of got 'stuck' in front of our table.
She spotted a tag that had purple glitter all over it, with a Scripture on the back. She looked both ways, scooped it up, and put it in that raggedy purse. My sister and I both caught this and were smiling ear to ear!

Feather prays while she works. CLEARLY, this woman would have left there without anything from our table, had she not seen the beautiful tag with the purple glitter. God took Feather's work, and I have no doubt in my mind that whatever Scripture was there was meant to be seen by this lady that day. God is SO specific to each of us, and this just proves it! God took something that Feather loves...purple glitter...and He used it to speak His words of life to the heart of someone Feather does not know, who is without a home, who happens to love purple glitter too!
I had so much fun with this page, and I used Feather's photo with permission here. Don't be afraid to step out when God calls you to do something! The 'small' things are NOT so small at all!!!

Blessings, Kim
