And so it Begins...

Today was the start of The Brotherly Love Project. A team of 10 grabbed their backpacks, bagged lunches, and covered the areas of Love Park and Suburban Station in Center City, Philadelphia.

"It's hard to believe that only 45 minutes of my time last Saturday morning could turn out to be such a great blessing! I couldn't make the trip downtown because I visit my mother on Saturdays, but I did go to the church to volunteer to put the bag lunches together. ...the young people worked together very well, and I just counted it a joy to be part of it all. The highlight for me was the Bible study that Kristy led and the prayers from the young people that God would bless the outreach." -Doris M

"A man by the name of James touched me so deeply! The minute I saw him my heart ached beyond words. He was all alone, lying on the hard unforgivable ground and having only one leg. I actually felt the whole world stop as I imagined what his world must be like. All that I could keep thinking about was how much he needed a real friend and someone to care for and about him. He needed to know that our Heavenly Father loves him and will care for him; as well as know that we cared for him and would help him. I have been praying daily for this man and cannot wait to visit with him again. Please pray for God’s leading in his life." -Darlene C

The 6.5 Team

"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises apon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn." Isaiah 60.1-3
