Dear Friend,

Greetings! I am writing to inform you about an opportunity to help us provide free food and hygiene products for the homeless in Houston, TX. During our recent July distribution we received many requests for facial and/or body wipes, soap, and bottled water. Praise God this is what He supplied us with to give. However, this request lets us know that it is a great need. In the particular area we focus on downtown, a group of men we helped led us toward a local organization by th…e name of The Beacon. As we continued to gave outside of this organizations building God allowed Pastor Shelton, Brother Wendell, and Sister Afani to meet a director from the Beacon. This encounter lead to a formal meeting and tour of the facility and after sitting down with them, we will been allowed to distribute our care packages directly from their facility as often as we like. GLORY TO GOD! With your continued help and support we will be able to give on a daily basis. From this facility alone we have been told to estimate serving between 700-800 individuals on a daily basis. This will not include those we will reach when we get out into the neighborhoods and distribute. The 2011 homeless census taken by The Coalition for the Homeless Houston/Harris County showed that 8,538 men, women and children in Houston, Harris and Fort Bend counties were homeless the night of the survey taken. On the same date in 2010, that number was 6,819. We can only begin to imagine what the number has increased to during this year. With your help, we can make a difference one life at a time. When a person is no longer thinking of where their next meal and hygiene products will come from they are able to have a clearer outlook on life. A simple meal and a clean body can make a world of a difference.

Together Es Amor Servicios Cristianos, Faith International Ministries, and you can reach our brothers and sisters and help give them a fresh look at life.

From My Heart To Your Mind

If I waited for man to understand my destiny/purpose in their presence, I’d be waiting for an eternity. Thank God, I live for Him and Him alone. I’m thankful that I know man does not hold my destiny in his hands. But, my destiny is in the Hands of the Father. Only He has say so over my life.

So the next time someone tells you no, or you feel like they are not giving you something you deserve. YOUR RIGHT, you don’t deserve it…YOU DESERVE MUCH MORE!!! That’s why God didn’t allow it to happen for you. Turn that negative into a positive and live for God and God alone.
