Meeting people where they are 

Helping neighborhoods one person at a time is where we are at in the community.  We understand this concept when Jesus gives the parable of the Sheppard leaving the 99 to retrieve the 1.  God cares about the individuals and Families.

 

Testimony

There was a man that came to the event. His testimony was that earlier that day He was on 71 hwy looking down at brush creek thinking how he hated his life and that nothing was good and he was ready to jump and end it all.  Something inside of him told not to jump.  He backed away from the railing. He got on his bike again and found his way to the event.  He went into the prayer area and immediately peace fell upon him.   Several people started praying for him.  After much prayer he began to testify that God gave him a new life.  He was so grateful that we came that he stayed around and helped till all the equipment was put away in the truck.


 
 

Testimony

We had a call from a person who’s mother lived in the neighborhood, she said that for 20 years she has never seen children play in the park because the violence, gang activity and murder was so bad. She said that she would not even let her own children play at the park. She said when she drove by that day and seen all the children playing in the park she was so blessed. The guys from Living Water Ministries had most of the kids playing a huge game of football and the Fire Dept. were spraying down the kids with water . God continues to be Great and the kids had a blast.
