Martha Pfeil sings

 

Martha Pfeil sings to start our Church service for the Homeless Saturday. Martha works tirelessly on our Clothes Bus, gathers food and clothing, and does it all with the right spirit…not about her, but rather about her God.

Bridge Fellowship good helpers

These Bridge Fellowship volunteers are having entirely too much fun. Great to have Karrie Cherry and Colleen back, and bring good helpers!

DID YOU KNOW…HAVE YOU TOLD ANYBODY?
We collect and distribute Food and Clothing for many Christian Ministries including 2,000 Homeless Meals weekly served by Layman Lessons Ministries, Belmont Church’s Isaiah 58 Homeless Feeding Program, and hundreds of Pizzas delivered weekly to the Nashville Rescue Mission.

GOD CAN USE YOU… JOIN HIS ALL VOLUNTEER ARMY OF COMPASSION!

If you can pray one minute every week for this ministry…God can use YOU!
If you can phone, email or sort food/clothing for this ministry…God can use YOU!
If you can DRIVE, pick up food donations for this ministry…God can use YOU!

Tom Dooley serves hot coffee, warming homeless hearts, sharing the blessing.

Pfeil

Martha Pfeil finds a way to get a change of clothes for a Homeless guy in 4 minutes or less, every week.
Martha sings weekly, so the Homeless know her before they get on her Clothes bus she organizes.

TRAINING YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR GRANDCHILDREN, MAKES GOD SMILE, AS WELL AS THE HOMELESS…PRECIOUS MEMORIES
BANK BALANCE…<-$830.00 IF ALL BILLS WERE PAID TODAY

Special Thanks to our Board Leaders, the Proberts in Gainesville, FL, Beavers in Hendersonville, TN, and anonymous supporters in North Carolina, Cookeville, TN, Brentwood, TN who provide our Housing for our
Training Center and weekly or monthly checks of financial support. We operate only from private donations.

PRAISE REPORT, PRAYER REQUESTS…”God things”…
PRAISE! We feed 2,000 Homeless meals weekly through partnership with Belmont Church’s Isaiah 58 program and the Rescue Mission, who get 200-300 Pizzas each week from our Food Collection Route. What an HONOR you who care, share!

NEEDS… That’s Right, I’ve said it!
Sustain what we have grown to be…10th Year Now of serving!
Expand to help others to help others across America…
(God’s vision is for 130 “Franchise Style” Layman Lessons!)

Downtown Building for full time Homeless and Needy Ministries…there, I’ve said it.
Churches with the Human and Financial Resources AND calling of God to help expand these ministries to fulfill the original vision God gave me from the start for 130 “Franchise Ministries” operated by local Churches across America, with this Nashville Ministry being the “Franchise Headquarters” to support! There, I’ve said it.

New Quiet Generator to replace the generator stolen from our locked Ministry Van. Volunteers to pick up and transport Food Donations wherever you live in Middle Tennessee. Mechanic for our Busses, Truck, and Cargo Van, to keep them up and running.

Secured Building and/or lot we can use for our vehicles and inventory storage OPERATIONS FUNDING…we need regular, dependable funding for our Operations. A volunteer with a “couple of hours a week” would help immensely in this area. An Operations Coordinator out there?

SATURDAY MORNING VOLUNTEERS…need 8-12 Volunteers every Saturday MORNING!
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, evidenced by 8,503 Homeless Repenters in this, our 10th year. I cannot help but laugh at those many who laughed at me and said “It will not last”. Maybe it won’t, but 10 years and 8,503 Homeless souls rescued from Hell on Earth and hereafter is a real good start…to God be the Glory!
