inside #01/2012 - January 2012
Greetings from the HfaN-team!
We hope you finished last year well and have had a wonderful start to 2012.
Our high-light at the end of the year was definitely our Christmas party on the street.
What a wonderful atmosphere it was. People enjoyed the food, the presents and our fellowship. Old friends from the street showed up and it felt like we were having a family reunion right there on the street! Thanks to all of you who made this possible.
We are back in full swing, it's exciting what has already happened this year. Even on our very first outreach of the year, one of our homeless friends came by to the trailer. He told us that he would love to come and help out at the "LIFEHOUSE property" so that he could become more righteous towards God.
He felt so lost and was also fearful that Jesus would reject him because of his failures and addictions. He sought to gain favor through helping us. We told him Jesus accepts you as you are and that only through His grace can you receive salvation and eternal life. He could hardly believe this and was even more excited to hear that he could do it right there.
He gave his life to Jesus, what a wonderful moment it was. Where before agony and fear controlled his life, peace and rest entered and took hold of him. He then left happy and full of joy.
Two days later Michael joined our "LIFE Training" program. It's a joy and an honor to have him here with us. We are thrilled to see what God has in store for him.
"I am a young man of 19 and I used to be homeless. I was not hooked on drugs or alcohol but I was lost and looking for God and answers to the questions of life.
I came to the "LIFEHOUSE Training Center" because a good friend advised me that they would help me in my quest. So, I came to the ranch and I discovered Jesus. He can help answer my questions and guide me in the way I should go in life."
As you can see 2012 has started off well for us and we have the expectation that there will be even more good news to share during this year!
Cream and Sugar trailer parking
For the past four years we were allowed to park our Cream and Sugar trailer on the University Baptist Church (UBC) parking lot in order to do our "outreaches".
We are very grateful for all the favor we have experienced with the staff of UBC.
Due to a building project we no longer are able to use this location for our outreaches. Now we are on the search for a new place close to the Drag where we can either park our mobile coffee shop or rent a facility that would serve our purpose.
If you become aware of any solution that meets this need we would appreciate it if you would contact us.
