Praise the Lord! He has been gracious and merciful toward us! Psalm 145:8 declares "The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy"
H.O.P.E. project Indianapolis Operations is underway. God has provided a burden for the homeless of our city and we are responding to that burden. More and more of our brothers and sisters in the Lord are being drawn by this burden for the least and the lost.
Some exciting updates to share:
As a direct answer to prayer God has provided a 15 passenger van to help meet transportation needs. This simple purchase of a van came with an unexpected surprise! When the seller became aware of what we were going to use the van for he cut the price, asked how he could help, and he got involved! We will hopefully be able to share some exciting details about his involvement in a future update...
We have been provided with an open door to teach Bible study at a faith-based soup kitchen on Thursday evenings. This unexpected invitation has become a great opportunity to declare the Word of the Lord.
The winter contingency is ending this month so lots of folks will be turned out from the downtown shelters by the 15th of April. This means we will have a lot more individuals needing our love and support in the months ahead. We stand ready and willing to express the love of God in any way He gives us direction.
We will continue to offer guidance, support, and encouragement to our friends in their hour of need. What we are most passionate about however, is planting the seed of the Gospel. Our focus is Christ for He is our greatest need!
Earnestly pray for us that we will continue to allow God to use us for His Glory.
