Open doors and full backpacks...
God has opened the doors wide at Oak Manor apartments, a large section 8 housing complex with many refugees and people from diverse backgrounds, races, and religious beliefs. At first, we were not allowed into the community because we are openly Jesus followers, but as the staff there saw our genuine love for the families, and our authentic desire to meet physical and spiritual needs- the doors flung open wide!! We've now been asked to help provide tutoring, grief counseling, ESL class help, and they have given us access to spend time with the kids and families in the community. The ground is prepped...We are actively praying for God to raise up and send missionaries into this community, preferably from among the friends we have made who live there! So THANK YOU to those of you who helped provide a backpack full of supplies, its effects were far reaching.
