Ministry Update 1-22-18

Hey everyone,

This week is going to be exciting and we are asking you to join us in prayer as we descend upon New Orleans and partner with local churches for our winter revival for the unsheltered. We, along with Billy Sampson Ministries and Exit 0 will be partnering with Terrytown Family Baptist Church, Cosmopolitan Evangelical Baptist Church and Grace Baptist Church to bring much needed help and hope to hundreds of needy people.

Volunteers will arrive Saturday and our first service will be Sunday morning with Pastor Terry Rodgers at Terrytown Family Baptist Church. Pastor Rodgers brings in the unsheltered each and every Sunday and we hope this coming Sunday will be a highlight for his ministry. There will be breakfast and lunch for everyone and special singing by the Sampson family.

We will spend Monday out on the streets and under the bridges passing out flyers and letting everyone know about the special revival that will start Tuesday morning. While we are out visiting, we will be prepared to meet basic needs like first aid and we will also have snack bags and other items available for those who need them. Paul Stensrud and Michael Bonacum who are with Exit 0 will be bringing many supplies that are specifically for the street outreach.

Tuesday-Thursday we will be serving breakfast and lunch, holding revival services, giving medical checkups and cutting hair. This will be our first time to do this in this manner and we ask you to pray for a few things specifically:

  1. Pray for a great number of people to come
  2. Pray for many to receive the Lord as their Savior
  3. Pray for strength for all of our mission team members
  4. Pray for the Lord’s provision for all the needs

We expect to serve more than 1,400 meals next week to those who attend. Many of the people we will serve are elderly and mentally ill and the meals we serve them will be the best they have had in a long time.

You can provide meals by making a donation here.

Mark your calendar!

You are invited to our 2018 fellowship day that will be held in Pigeon Forge, TN on Friday, March 9th. This is a time for us to gather with our volunteers and partners (supporters) to say thank you and enjoy an afternoon and evening of food, fun and fellowship.

Last year was super fun and everyone had a good time relaxing and getting to know one another. This fellowship day is open to anyone who loves Unsheltered International. It’s completely free and all we ask is that you RSVP by replying to this email.

Facebook Live Fundraiser March 8th

On Thursday, March 8th, we are going to have a special two-hour live fundraising event. This is going to be a time where we come to you live and give tons of ministry updates and share our burden for the lost with our partners. We are asking God to do something BIG for us on that day and we are asking you to begin praying with us for a great harvest. Watch for more information in the coming days on this exciting event.
