As many of you know that we serve in a street church that has an incredible ministry to the down and out. We have about 400 people in our church right now and 50% have recovered from meth addiction. The other 40% have recovered from other addictions. Anyway, this is a hard ministry and our church never has money. Our building has been falling apart, and every room was in great need. Two years ago we prayed that God would provide a way to keep this ministry alive and bring funds to fix the building. Saturday we got the answer.
There is a large church in town that does a great outreach ministry called Second Saturday. On the second Saturday of the month they get hundreds of volunteers to ascend upon a building project in the community that will benefit the community. Contractors, construction workers, painters, landscapers etc and everyday people come to help. The church that has this Second Saturday ministry asked the city commissioner about the need in the community and he said to help “The Lords Gym”. Thats us. Other churches got wind of it and low and behold our prayers were answered and 500 people showed up on Saturday to fix our building. It was the most amazing picture of the body of Christ. Here is a 3 minute version of the day!!! Oh and by the way, that city commissioner, Mark Boldt, was on his hand and knees cleaning our chairs we use on Sunday morning (those chairs had some skank).
