Pastor Richard Gay leads these 5 Homeless men through the Bible process of becoming new creatures in Christ through Jesus Christ…2,200 Homeless have now been saved in 10 years!
Clyde Beavers Sings to start the Church service, then counsels with the 9 Homeless men called to Repentance, the Prodigal sons coming home to God. Every man should find a Christian man ready and willing the pray with him when the time comes, like in our Church walls…it should be the same outside the Church walls…one on one, brother to brother.
Martha Pfeil sings to open our Service singing Sweet Sweet Spirit in this Place, then dishes out the food, then moved on to be the only person serving our Homeless who needed clothing. We only had 4 workers today, so Martha did triple duty, and did it well.
Martha, Marty Beavers, and Tom Dooley were Champions for God, doing triple duty since they were all that came today to do God’s Work on Saturday Morning Church, except for Steve Sinclair who was offsite working furiously to get our big Chevy Van running again.
Marty Beavers and Tom Dooley man the Banquet serving line. Big Mark carrys food plates to the Homeless seated and waiting…Mark was on the streets himself 3 months ago, a Crack addict who is turning his life around in our Training Center. Cipriano is returning his tray to pick up more plates after serving hot coffee and freezing iced water. Cipriano is a Felon doing his Community Service work by serving the Homeless with us every week.
