As a supporter of 2 Act Ministries, whether it is in prayer or financial, makes a huge difference in people's lives. It takes the body of Christ to come together and serve a need, a ministry has many parts and all the parts are equally important. Without Jesus, the Holy Spirit, volunteers, prayer warriors and financial support, the below stories would not be possible, for that we at 2 Act Ministries are forever grateful.
I can tell you that the people we help know, without a doubt, that JESUS is using the body of Christ to help them, every person we help or assist or lead in certain direction hears the Gospel, these acts of Jesus' love result in not only temporary help here in this world, but in a lot of cases, eternal decisions for Jesus.
Since our last email, God has used the ministry to provide hundreds of care packages, food, cold water, electrolytes, clothes, and sunscreen. Seasonal items are crucial for the homeless out there on the streets, outreach is crucial for reaching people with the Gospel and to make relationships and provide much needed resources. For example, in the last month and a half we were able to assist 3 addicts into programs to combat addictions and get off the streets. Outreach is done at our park outreaches, pizza party outreaches and mobile outreaches, we are all over the city of Las Vegas. Reaching out to these folks we find out the situation and actually provide a hand up, we love providing for the homeless, but our main goal is the Gospel and resources.
At our last pizza party event we ran into a couple who ended up on the streets to to job loss after the covid pandemic, she is pregnant and they were living in their car. After confirmation from another ministry partner that they are on the list to receive case management and housing, 2 Act Ministries was able to provide the temporary emergency housing. This has been done for 2 different families so they are not living on the streets while waiting for permanent housing. With affordable housing being out of reach, pandemics and other circumstances the emergency housing program is very important so these folks don't end up on the streets.
Kelly is doing awesome, she now has a room of her own that she is renting, she has a scooter to get around, and she has her surgery lined up for her hip. Andrea, one of our volunteers, did a great job of getting everything set up for her. Kelly went from sleeping in the tunnels of Vegas and doing heroin to Glorifying God for all He has done.
Pizza parties are going at full steam, Gospel is preached, resources provided including Id's, showers, haircuts, day labor and so many other necessities. God is on the move at these resource/pizza party events, a BIG HUGE thank you to Project 4 Humanity and Feed my Sheep Ministries for partnering with us to make these events such a success. At the last event a homeless gentleman walked in bent over with a cane. He heard the Gospel message, he responded by giving his life to the Lord, after that he got baptized , and as he was walking out of the pizza party event he had no cane and was not bent over anymore, he was healed physically and spiritually. He told one of our volunteers he has not walked like that in over five years, that is God demonstrating His power and His love. Every outreach there is a God story, His Word says - has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world tho be rich in faith. James 2:5.
As you can see, your support and prayers are making a lasting and eternal difference in the lives of the homeless and less fortunate. Thank you and may God bless you.
