HOPE STREET MINISTRY
Indeed 22nd Feb was a joyous day for all of us at Hope Street Ministry. By God’s grace and through all your kind donations, we were able to rent a premises to use alternate Saturday to spend more time blessing all our street friends. Today marked the first outreach in our new premises. A 5 minute walk from Kota Raya, we had people gathering to spend the morning with God and be blessed.
All our volunteers gathered at 8am to pack the food packets and clothes for all our street friends. At 9am we spent time interceding for the entire event and by 9.30am the place began to fill up. The program began at 10am with a time of praise and worship. This was followed by the Word of God that was shared. The topic for this week was “A God of Blessings”. In English and Bahasa, we shared the Word and prayed for them.
Our youngest volunteer Luke, then celebrated his 14th birthday with all our street friends as he cut his cake. The meal was then served to all who were present, as our volunteers dished out our regular Nasi Lemak but this time with Ayam Goreng..!!!
It was then time for some fun as we played some games with them. Our friends were very excited and it was not difficult to get them to come up and play as those who won received gifts.
It was then time to continue spreading the love of God and we helped to meet their needs. We had Dr. Indra who volunteered her time to give medical help and check the pressure of all who were present. Besides this we also had our lawyers present to help those with legal matters. The rest of us mingled with all to share our love, lend an ear and be a source of comfort. The whole team of the day was LOVE IN ACTION.
As it drew to afternoon, each one was handed a bag of snacks and clothes as they left thanking God for His blessings upon their lives. What a wonderful day it was as so much of God’s love filled the entire place. We give all glory to God as the placed is already packed and we believe God has a bigger place in store for us. ALLELUIA….FOR THE WONDERFUL DAY OF LOVE IN ACTION.
