Practical Ministry Opportunity - PLEASE READ

Praise the Lord, Saints!

I wanted to share a practical ministry opportunity God has laid on my heart. This venue will help the homeless communities around you, wherever you may be located.

Homeless Ministry Bags

Though I have participated in something similar in the past, I certainly feel this method is very practical. Many friends have been working with me on a quite a few evangelism ideas, and have really helped to develop this program as well.

Anyway, all you need to do is purchase gallon-sized zip lock bags and fill them with practical things that may be needed by a homeless sister or brother. Also add a gospel tract or a Bible, if possible. Keep 2-3 of these bags in your car at all times, so that you can distribute them whenever you pass someone peddling on the street.

Many things can be included in the bags, but here are some examples (all can be purchased at your local $1 store):

  • Socks
  • Non-perishable, prepared foods (vienna sausage, vacuum sealed chicken salad, etc.)
  • Bottled water or a boxed drink
  • Washcloth
  • Rain poncho
  • First aid kit
  • Lotion
  • Deoderant
  • Maxi pads (individually wrapped)
  • Comb and/or brush
  • Lip balm
  • Bug spray
  • Gloves
  • Crackers
  • Phone card (Max of $5)

Other things can be included, but these are a few suggestions. Simply include whatever you can, and I'm sure it will be appreciated.

PLEASE, if you have other ministry ideas, please share them! Let's change this world for Christ, one soul at a time!!!
