Good afternoon, 

I hope this message finds you well.  On Christmas Day in 2014, my family and I went Downtown Atlanta to feed the homeless, and was overwhelm by the amount of people who were homeless. I knew I had to do something to help. Since that day, we have been feeding and ministering to the homeless on the third Saturday of each month by soliciting help from others. The most people we have fed is 100 and there a many more men, women and children who walk away hungry because we don't have enough . My goal is to help the homeless and those transitioning from incarceration to begin again. In other words, to help them start a new life by providing food, clothes, shelter and also career and mental health counseling; and work with employment agencies, temporary services, established business owners and Marta Transit to help them to become gainfully employed, so they can improve the quality of their life. For the most part, it is difficult for those who are homeless and transitioning from incarceration to find employment. I believe that everyone deserves a second chance. The Ministry of Reconciliation and Outreach was established to share the love of Jesus Christ and help others to begin again by starting a new life. I am grateful for the opportunity to tell my story and to share with others what we are doing to make a positive difference in the lives of those who are homeless.  Thank you.

The Ministry of Reconciliation and Outreach

During my absence, I've been seeking the Lord about His will for my life and what He wanted me to do. He has given me the Ministry of Reconciliation and Outreach (2 Corinthians 5: 17-21), where we reach out to the homeless and those transitioning from incarceration with the love of Jesus Christ and to help improve their quality of life. Our ministry feed and minister to the homeless on the 3rd Saturday of each month and is currently working to provide: clothing, and shelter, career counseling, work through employment agencies, and temporary services. We are working to partner with established business owners and Marta Transit to help the homeless and transitioning individuals to become gainfully employed--so they can begin again. Will keep you posted on our progress. Here is the link to my youtube channel: My URL is:

You Are Holy and Without Blame in His Sight

Did you know that when God looks at you, He doesn't see you..he sees Jesus? Even when you sin and don't do everything right, because Jesus paid the price for your sins with His precious blood. "Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us" (Heb. 9:12). For by one offering he has perfected forever (spiritually) them that are sanctified (Heb. 10:14). Also, "I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more" (Heb. 8:13). So if God doesn't remember your sins, why do you keep bringing them up? "You are holy and without blame in his sight" (Eph. 1:4). Of course, God does not want you to sin because that give the enemy place in your life, but he understand that we are still a work in progress until we recieve our new body (Cor. 15:44). " For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities but was in all points tempted like as we are yet without sin. Let us therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need" (Heb. 4:15-16).

What is Your New Year's Resolution?

Is it to be more nutritionally fit and health conscious because you are the temple of God and He is not glorified in a sick body? It is to be more conscious of what you say because death and life are in the power of the tongue(Proverb 18:21) and you will have what you say (Mark 11:23). God says, I keep telling my children they can have what they say, but they keep saying what they have; Is it to be a vessel of honor, santified and meet for the master's use and prepared for every good work? Is to become financally sound go that you can give to those in need?

When you pray are you expecting God to answer?

When you pray, are you expecting God to answer? Or, are you praying just to be praying? In Act 12: 1-17, you will see that although they prayed earnestly for Peter's release from prison, they were not expectig God to answer.

"James is killed and Peter is imprisoned. About that time King Herod Agrippa began to persecute some believers in the church. He had the apostle James (John’s brother) killed with a sword. When Herod saw how much this pleased the Jewish people, he also arrested Peter. Then he imprisoned him, placing him under the guard of four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring Peter out for public trial after the Passover. But while Peter was in prison, the church prayed very earnestly for him.

The night before Peter was to be placed on trial, he was asleep, fastened with two chains between two soldiers. Others stood guard at the prison gate. Suddenly, there was a bright light in the cell, and an angel of the Lord stood before Peter. The angel struck him on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick! Get up!” And the chains fell off his wrists. Then the angel told him, “Get dressed and put on your sandals.” And he did. “Now put on your coat and follow me,” the angel ordered".

So Peter left the cell, following the angel. But all the time he thought it was a vision. He didn’t realize it was actually happening. They passed the first and second guard posts and came to the iron gate leading to the city, and this opened for them all by itself. So they passed through and started walking down the street, and then the angel suddenly left him.

Peter finally came to his senses. “It’s really true!” he said. “The Lord has sent his angel and saved me from Herod and from what the Jewish leaders had planned to do to me!”

When he realized this, he went to the home of Mary, the mother of John Mark, where many were gathered for prayer. He knocked at the door in the gate, and a servant girl named Rhoda came to open it. When she recognized Peter’s voice, she was so overjoyed that, instead of opening the door, she ran back inside and told everyone, “Peter is standing at the door!”

“You’re out of your mind!” they said. When she insisted, they decided, “It must be his angel.” Meanwhile, Peter continued knocking. When they finally opened the door and saw him, they were amazed. He motioned for them to quiet down and told them how the Lord had led him out of prison".

What about you, are you amazed too when God answers your prayer? If so, where is your faith and confidence in God answering your prayer? 1 John 5:14 says "And this is the confidence that we have in him that if we ask anything according to his will (that is consistent with a Godly life) he hears us, and if we know that he hears us whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petition that we desired of him.

Being Grateful Right Where You Are

Sometimes when you are alone, what do you find yourself daydreaming about? a new home, a new job, a new car, possibly going on vacation, or wishing that you had more money to do the things that you would like to do? What about just being grateful right where you are. Thanking God for His provisions and protection, for eyes to see, hears to hear, nose to smell, tongue to taste and the strength that He gives you to do all the wonderful things that you do on a daily basis. Next time you find yourself daydreaming about things you don't have, think about all the wonderful blessings that you do have. I heard a saying that goes like this: I use to complain about my shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet.
