God has burdened our hearts about reaching out to the people that are living on the streets of America. We have started a new area of our ministry to try and reach out to those that are struggling. We gather backpacks full of food, blankets, hygiene items, a KJV bible, tracts and after we have a few of these bags ready we distribute them were we see a need. We are able to witness to each one that receive a bag and not only give them a few supplies but give them the most important thing, the Gospel. Please help us pray that God would help us to reach these people for His Glory!
Here is a list of some of the supplies we use!
NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS
Cookies, Pringles Potato Chips
Pop-tarts, Cereal-Single Bowls
Granola bars, Soups
Crackers, Drink Mix
Spaghetti & Meatballs
Toothbrush & Toothpaste
Single packs of Kleenex
Ziploc Bags (sandwich & gallon size)
Just a couple envelopes and stamps just in case they need to write someone or even write you. We usually put envelopes, stamps, pens, q-tips, Chap Stick, band aids, toothbrush and just whatever in a Ziploc bag and place them in the backpack!
Plastic Fork, Spoons, Napkins, Packs of Chewing Gum, Candy that won’t melt! Also all canned food with pop tops so they can just open the can & eat out of it!!
These are the items we try to use. Usually the bags are different depending on what we have in stock but they all have some food, hygiene, and all of them have a bible and tracts! The main goal is getting them the Gospel of the Lord Jesus!!
