Answered Prayers

    I have always had a heart for the broken and lonely. About a year and a half ago I started praying for some kind of opportunity to help homeless people. Last summer I went to a pastor at our church and expressed my desire to help in our community, but it didn't go anywhere. I kept praying about it, but I eventually stopped praying about it, busy with life, the family and work. A full year later I met a lady (it seemed so random at the time) who had been conducting a Park Church for the homeless for the past five years. I asked her who was helping her and she told me noone, just me and my friends at the park. I asked her if I could join them, and since then I have been able to be at the park with the lonely, broken and hungry. I am so grateful that even thou I had forgotten, God never did! He answered my prayers when I seemed to forget.
    The door was opened and now I spend every Tuesday and Thursday mornings with my friends at The Park.
    Thank you Jesus!

    Amen, Melissa, He never forgets, He just has the best timing! I love that idea of a church in the park, too, reaching people where they are <3.

    Amen, Melissa. God is good. He knows when it is time better than we do. A Church in the park is such a great idea.

    What great testimony.  I would love to do something like this, however, I'm afraid of the areas the homeless hang out.  I have to pray for strength or for another plan.  I Know He will guide me to the destination He wishes for me to serve. 

    Bless you Melissa.
