SERVING SATURDAY IN OROVILLE, CALIFORNIA

bee and emma serving bedrock

Thank you Father God for suiting up and showing up at Bedrock Park in Oroville, California this evening for our first Serving Saturday.  We arrived to total insanity with two different groups fighting in the park along the beautiful Feather River.  Diane grabbed a handful of popsicles and ran into the crazy stupid telling everyone they needed to cool down.  Tracey tried to reason with the unruly guys then he called in Jesus Christ to have his way casting out the evil  God was the party crasher!  One of the mouthy guys claimed to have a loaded gun so hello 911. The Oroville Police Department came instantly and needless to say, the bad mojo all ran.  We honor our officers for making a difference.

We didn’t let spiritual warfare stop the appointment from God.  We prayed for peeps and shared the gospel.  The glory field is ripe for the harvest.  Our dear Terry surprised Tracey with a hand carved rod.  What a perfect gift at the right time.  Yes, we’re called to messy places with not so pretty peeps.  We’re called to love unconditionally.  You don’t have to “take over” a park to make a difference.  It’s so simple to serve others sharing the love of Christ. Hurt people hurt others.  Let them see Jesus in you.

LOVING ON THE LOST ONE PEEP AT A TIME

I work for God and he allows me to minister and love on the lost.  Robert came to our church in Oroville, California months ago.  He was broken in tears that his brother had passed away.  Robert and his service dog needed a bus ticket to Idaho to be with his family.  I wrote his story and donations came offering him a hand up and not a hand out during this time of loss.

Robert and Twyla returned to Oroville stepping into our life.  Robert had three heart attacks in a short period of time.  Needless to say, we couldn’t let him recover at a homeless camp on the river so he came to live with us.  We loved Robert unconditionally and sometimes it was real messy.  Twyla ruled our house as she trained our dogs too.  Robert has come so far in such a short period of time.  God covered him with favor and grace.

Today, I said farewell for awhile to Robert.  He and Twyla have a new journey and chapter.  I cried all the way home knowing that loving on one peep at a time is all that is takes.  Love and kindness is the ripple effect to building a better world.  I love you Robert and Twyla .  I know that God loves you more.  Whew and ugly cry.

HOW WE STARTED IN AFRICA

Koech, Tracey, Jaxs Kenya

God gave me FEED MY PEEPS on a mountain in Kenya Africa 2011.  We had no idea that this special boy named James Koech would change our lives forever.  God wanted Koech more.  He passed away after returning to his family in Africa.  We serve now in three states because Koech showed me hungry kids and little ones with no clothes in the remote areas of Kenya.  God has no boundaries.  We serve because of Koech and Matthew 25:35.  Please read more about our testimony with Koech by clicking on “WHO WE ARE.”koech village parae

a reason to help

I met a special person at a homeless camp in Northern Virginia not long ago that had made some poor decisions. This person worked really hard to stay focused and finally landed gainful employment. We have a great team that has offered this dear person a hand up and not a hand out.  I moved this wonderful friend from a tent and a tarp to a secure roof with a real bathroom today. This friend loves the Lord and has a fresh start. Homelessness has no zip code. Homelessness doesn’t mean hopelessness. I’m so grateful to be part of the journey to plant seeds and watch God harvest exceedingly and abundantly. Keep on Serving, Jaxs
