Miami's Homeless Face Yet Another Demon

This weekend we received a call from a man that was present at one of our street missions late last year. I remember him walking up to us with his camera in hand as we handed out "Love Bags" on SW 2nd Street in downtown Miami and asking us what we were doing. When we stopped and took the time to explain the mission and ministry of Surrender40, he seemed amazed that anyone would really take the time and effort to love on and care for the homeless and hungry of a city like Miami. We spent a few minutes talking while he explained that he was a private citizen that writes articles for local newspapers and blog sites. The content of the call this weekend was very disturbing, and if the City of Miami has it's way and proceeds with what they are planning, (See article in link below) then the very future of Surrender40 and other homeless ministries is very dark.

The City of Miami wants to require people like us to pay for and maintain a license to feed the homeless, clean up the streets (which our people and friends of the ministry already do), and provide portable toilets for the homeless after we feed them. WOW, what an abomination to all the scriptures we have ever read about loving the poor and blessing the needy. The city actually wants to profit from the work we do for God's Kingdom.

After reading the article below, please post a comment, say a prayer, start a petition, write a letter, something, anything to help us stop the madness of persecuting people that have a heart to help others. We NEED your voice, through prayer and petition, to stop the persecution that is about to take place. As the members of our ministry go through another anointed Beth Moore Bible Study about Revelation, we are being shown more and more evidence that we are indeed living in the end times. As you read the article below, remember these two very important facts, not opinions, facts.
