WINTER PATROL DOWTOWN
Every winter, New Life Evangelistic Center, an outstanding Christian Church of God, sponsors a ministry that visits the homeless on the streets at a given night and provide blankets and sandwiches to the hungry and hurting homeless people of downtown St. Louis and vicinity.
We are part of the group that will be going out for this ministry. So every Saturday night Mike and I, with the help of other churches, will be leading a group to go downtown St. Louis and visit the homeless sleeping in the streets,corners, and tents. We will be providing sandwiches, blankets, winter gears(such as socks, thermals, boots, etc...), prayers, and love to those who are in need. We pray for laborers to come and join and be a follower. We hope that we can help build others and train them to one day have their own group or their church to come out and cover one day of the week to minister to the needy. If you have the heart for serving or wish to collaborate with us, please do not hesitate to sign up or contact us, I will list our contact information along with the list of items we will need for this ministry. May God bless you with his glorious riches and surpassing greatness and love.
