PRAISE THE LORD FOR HELPING US HAND OUT 300 "LOVE BAGS" THIS WEEKEND! ****ALSO**** THE LATEST "JUAN & NELLIE UPDATE"





The ministry team of Surrender40 would like to express their deepest and heartfelt gratitude to our Prayer Partners and all those support our work with financial donations.
WHAT AN AWESOME 4TH OF JULY WE HAD
The first thing we want to do is give a tremendous praise report in a follow up to the story of Juan & Nellie. From the feedback and prayer requests that we received, we knew that MANY people were praying for this wonderful homeless couple that never lost their faith in God. We are happy to report that although they have still not yet found a home, they are BOTH working, (Nellie was at work on this day) and the expression on Juan's face (Click on top left hand picture) tells it all. They are saving for an apartment, they both have cell phones to call each other while at work, and soon they will be OFF THE STREETS! We can't tell you guys just how much we are absolutely convinced that "GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS". What a tremendous testimony this couple will have when it is all said and done. Trachena went and made copies of the pictures that we took of them and had 2 printed because she promised Juan that she would. The one thing that I can testify to concerning my wife's GREATEST quality is that she is a woman of integrity, and when she says she will, SHE DOES! The look on Juan's face was priceless after she handed him the pictures. Imagine the witness that these picture will provide when they are old and their children are grown and they show them pictures of when they were homeless, living on rat infested streets in Miami, and they NEVER STOPPED believing God, always thanking Him for His mercy and grace. WOW!!!!
Now, for the BIG NEWS! We gave out THREE HUNDRED "Love Bags" today, bringing our ministry total to 1747 "Love Bags" served. In addition, we handed out 56 Bibles, bringing that total to 250. Praise His Holy Name!
The one thing that has warmed our hearts almost more then anything is the fact that people now know when we are coming, they wait for us. They expect us! They look for the red SUV to turn down the block, so they can see the Surrender40 signs on the side of the vehicle. Some have even kidded that "You guys are late" when we show up. What an awesome feeling to know that God is using our ministry in such a very big way.
Serving God is so wonderfully rewarding, it is a feeling like no other when people say something like, "Thank you, I did not know where my next meal was coming from", you guys are RIGHT ON TIME!!!
Surrender40 would like to know that you make a difference, a BIG difference, and we love you for your support and giving.
If you don't think your money, your gift can make a difference in this city, in this world?
THINK AGAIN, IT DID TODAY! IT ALWAYS WILL!
FRIENDS, PARTNERS, BELOVED, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE SURVIVE AND OPERATE ENTIRELY ON DONATIONS AND WE NEED YOUR HELP. LET THE WORDS THAT YOU HAVE READ HERE BE WRITTEN ON THE TABLET OF YOUR HEART AND PURPOSE IN YOUR SPIRIT AND SOUL TO HAND OUT 300 MORE "LOVE BAGS" NEXT TIME WE GO ON A SATURDAY MISSION.
WE NEED 40 PEOPLE TO GIVE AT LEAST $20 EACH TO "FEED THE NEED" HERE IN MIAMI! PLEASE, WE CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH BLESSING YOU WILL RECEIVE FROM THIS SIMPLE ACT OF GIVING. LOOK AT THE ABOVE PICTURES MANY TIMES, AND ANSWER YOUR HEART!
