My brothers and sisters, as we move through this season of Advent may we open our hearts to God’s love as we prepare to welcome Christ into our lives and homes!

 

I need your prayers! As many of you know, Holy Trinity Ministries has a Saturday outreach on 13th Street and Franklin Avenue in the Phillips neighborhood of South Minneapolis. For the last six years we have ministered to the neighborhood by providing hot meals, clothing, prayer and an ear to listen for the homeless and the poor. We have been blessed by the generosity of many partners; Vision of Glory Lutheran Church, True Light Covenant, Horizon Community Church, Peace Lutheran and of course Trinity First Lutheran as they have allowed us the use of that corner of their property for our mission. Recently we have been informed that the property we use for the ministry is being sold and the small building we desperately need will be demolished in April 2013 with a new building being put up and due to this new building project taking up the entire property; it necessitates us to find a different location for our street outreach ministry.

We provide 340-400 meals each Saturday and season appropriate clothing along with partnering with Trinity First on Thursday evenings for a meal in their cafeteria and a communion service the 2nd and 4th Saturdays.  This has had a large impact on the surrounding community in a very positive manner and we don’t believe we are called to just ‘leave’ this area in April however, there seems to be no viable alternatives in the area and so we are asking the Lord to direct our path and give us a clear understanding of where he wants to take this mission. (We feel a little like Moses standing in front of the Red Sea!) Please pray for us during this discerning process. If you have any insight please feel free to contact me: toms@htmcounseling.org
