Homeless Ministry


Some of the most in need of compassion are the Homeless. Jesus was very clear on how we are to treat these beautiful people. Matthew 25:40
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto  you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my  brethren, ye have done it unto me.    Matthew 25:45 ( Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you,  Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these,    Luke 9:48 And said  unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name  receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he  that is least among you all, the same shall be great. 

Please help us help these beautiful people as you would Jesus himself !!!

Laundry Trailer


Our Disaster teams do a great job restoring electric with generators and removing debris after a storm. As someone that has been devastated by a tornado I learned all these things are wonderful but also a short time need. I learned very quickly that there was going to be a long term need I was not expecting LAUNDRY! We are now working to purchase and build a laundry trailer. We can take this trailer to a devastated area so that people will have a place to do their laundry for FREE. My wife and I learned it takes around a year to get your home built back. A laundry trailer would be a much needed long term solution and help to big problem. We would love to have your help with this project!!
