I started out last night with going into the Budget Inn Motel to talk with a mother of a woman that is in the Durham County Jail. I was trying to get a plan lined up for when she gets out but it is sad when there is not much interest in seeing her own daughter get her life together. I will continue to try even though mom is not interested. I cruised Holloway Street next to find the streets loaded with cars and people. I had several of the regulars that were hungry so I went to Ghetto Mac (McDonald's) to get 20 McDoubles. I ministered to many with cold drinks and the burgers. Next I was feeling led to go to "The Mac" (McDougald Terrace Projects).
There are so many kids that have two strikes against them coming out of the womb! There chances of having a good life are so slim. We pray that the Lord will send laborers into the harvest! The fields are so ripe but the laborers are so few.
Matthew 9:36 Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then He *said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. 38 "Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest."
I thank the Lord for the opportunity that He has given me to attempt to reach these little ones for Him! I have to keep going so that I can hopefully meet the parent or parents (in many cases the grandmother) so that we can work deeper into their lives. I was just talking with someone today about the fact that the amount of good grandparents today is so small. I have come across so many of them that are either addicted to heroin or crack! We are living in a world on a fast downward spiral. We must reach the lost for Jesus! How can we look into the faces of these little ones and not do something?
A huge thank you to all that help this ministry to function through your prayers or financial support! God Bless!
