Have You Seen the Streets of Omaha?

Jan 14, 2015  |     |   General

2015 has started out rather cold!!  We aren’t finding as many people out on the streets, which is a good thing.  Most of the homeless population are at the shelters or finding someone to let them stay in their homes.

One of our first stops was with two women walking down the street, one with no coat!  She gladly accepted one of the coats we had with us. On 24th and Spencer we served a few people who were braving the cold. This week the weather was ridiculously cold, which made even less people out on the streets but those we did see outside in the cold weather were happy to receive food, coats, and scarves ALL FREE IN THE NAME OF JESUS.  At this time we don’t have very many hats and gloves to pass out.  We keep spreading the word to anyone who will listen about this need!

Lindsey , one of Open Door Mission’s volunteer coordinators used to be in charge of leading the Streets of Omaha volunteers. January 2 was Lindsey’s last week in the Volunteer Department.  We loved getting to know her and appreciated her service and love of the people we serve.  We wish her good luck in her new position at the mission.

Thank you for your continual prayers for those we serve each week.  We are blessed to be part of this ministry.
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.  Colossians 4:2
