Our team is at the LA Dream Center continuing to experience and learn amazing things that God does. We've been part of outreach projects on Skid Row and in various parts of the city. We've helped families that have lost their children to foster care and gained them back. We've spent time with the homeless. We've wrapped Christmas gifts for kids and much more.
This is one of my favorite places in the world. I ask you to pray for The Community Dream Center that we intend to open soon in Henry County, VA. The newspaper, Martinsville Bulletin, mentioned our work in an article yesterday as well. Already we are able to feed hundreds of people each month and help many with clothes and other benevolent items. But we've yet to realize the opening of a homeless shelter for men and families and a transition program or discipleship program that will help men get their lives back on track.
I'm excited about our dream. One excellent leader said something like this … help others reach their dreams, and you will reach your dreams. I believe that. Another reason we are in LA. Another reason we share with those in need.
But the big reason is JESUS. He gives hope. He puts us and others on a path of abundant living and love. I'm excited about the greatness of God flowing through people that are sold out to sharing God's love with others. Are you one of those? Join me. Join others doing the same.
There will always be some in the land who are poor. That is why I am commanding you to share freely with the poor and with other Israelites in need.
Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.
