After hearing The Word of God preached, these Homeless men responded to the altar call to seek God, to change their lives to live for God, instead of themselves. These 3 men with Pastor Richard Gay are being led through the promises and process in the Bible and decide to accept God’s free gift of salvation…2,192 now have been saved in our 10 year history!

This beautiful Dodge Pickup Truck was donated 1 year ago to Layman Lessons Ministries by the family of Phil and Julie Robertson from Judson Baptist Church. This awesome gift has proven a life saver for our Ministries as our fleet of vehicles continously break down because they have 400,000 miles on them, so this Dodge pickup does triple duty, even powering our PA System for our Saturday Church services as well as transporting food and clothing donations during the week. Please pray for resources to replace/upgrade our 3 busses, Step Van, and Chevy 15 passenger Van, and to replace the 1990 Volvo no longer with us. Even this awesome nice truck will wear out quickly if it continues to do triple duty!

PRAISE REPORT, PRAYER REQUESTS…”God things”…
Christian Churches needed to “Equip” with the Human and Financial Resources AND calling of God to help expand these ministries to new areas of need, geographically, days and times to serve, new volunteer teams willing to accept full responsibility to do the work, Train inside and outside Church building walls, and still give all Glory to God.

We are the ONLY ministry serving hot coffee to 100-160 Homeless, furnishing a 1,600 sf tent with nice chairs and tables, an Hour of Praise and Worship music followed by a full Church service with singing, preaching, spiritual counseling and prayer, a hot banquet meal, a sack lunch to go, and a change of Clothes from our Clothes Bus complete with underwear, socks, and grooming items. Caring for their physical needs provides opportunity to serve their spiritual needs.
Building and/or empty lot we can use for our Saturday Services, vehicles and inventory storage, or set up a Blessingdales Thrift Center in areas of need?
