Homeless But Not Hopeless

We were out on the streets of New York City, ministering to people and met Avalon and Terry.   They were homeless.

homeless-man1Avalon met her boyfriend Terry, on the streets.  We prayed for Avalon and she was healed of her asthma and Terry from pain in his mouth.  We were able to bless them with some clothes and some finances.  As we were talking with them, someone gave them a nice warm pizza .

Avalon is a real testimony of trusting God for His provision for them every single day.  Avalon became homeless when she had lost her job and could no longer afford to pay the rent for her apartment.  This could happen to anyone today.  She is just like anyone of one of us.

Yet, she trusts God for her every need and sees Him faithfully meet them all every single day.  She even gives away what she has to help other homeless people and totally trusts God to take care of her.

In her own words:

“You know, being homeless, like, there’s a lot of needs that I have and that all the people out here have.  But, I’ve learned and I’ve seen really the work of God because every night I go to bed with what I need.  And I’ve learned that, you know, I can help other people and I’ve always given things away that I’ve always needed.  Because I always know that God is gonna take care of me. 

And at the end of the day He’ll reward me and you know I get back whatever I’ve given.  Sometimes I get back what I’ve given times ten.  You know, because I just have that faith that He’s gonna take care of me.  So I don’t get scared about what I don’t have and what I do have because I know that, you know, that He’s gonna give it to me, if not that second, you know, all in due time.   

Of course, I love Jesus. I just thank Him for everything that I have.  Even though, right now it’s not a lot.  I’m alive.  I’m pretty much healthy for the most part.  I go to bed.  I’m not alone.”

You will be touched by her testimony.
