MSP Outreach- Saturday October 4th, 2014
“I need a job!” Not the first words you expect to hear upon meeting a stranger, but at least she was honest. During Saturday’s outreach, the entire team was walking through a neighborhood off State Street. Everyone stopped on a corner where a group of family and friends had gathered. When Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles asked if anyone needed anything, a young lady spoke up “Yeah- I need a job!” He replied, “Well- we can help with that!” While she was filling out the Hot Sheet with her information, Mike began to talk with her and asked if she had ever asked Jesus to come into her heart. The lady replied she had been baptized and gone to church a few times, but that was it. Pastor Frank Jackson and Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles immediately began to explain the Gospel to her and what it meant to accept Christ as your Savior. During the conversation, her entire face began to change as she realized the truth of what Jesus had done for her. The young lady decided it was time to repent and receive all of what Christ had to offer because of the cross. With tears of gratitude in her eyes and a smile on her face, she said no one from a local church had ever come down her street before, and she had lived in the same house for 6 years. The next day, the young lady went to the nearby Harvest Church Illinois for Sunday service. She has also been receiving some needed food and additional assistance.
‘Til next time… see YOU on the streets!
MSP Outreach- Saturday October 18th, 2014.
Have you ever thought your life was beyond repair? Or that God would not accept you because of your past choices? Think again…this is exactly what this young man thought until he encountered Jesus and the truth of the Gospel out on State Street in East St. Louis. During MSP Outreach this past Saturday, Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles saw him on the street, walked up, and started to share about the upcoming conference at the nearby Harvest Church. The man explained how he had been looking for a steady job with no real success. Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles said that MSP was able to assist him in that area, and had him start filling out a Hot Sheet with his information. As Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles held his beer, the young man opened up and shared how he really wanted to change his entire lifestyle, but felt trapped. He had made poor choices in the past and felt unworthy to approach God for help because of it. Immediately, Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles shared with him the truth that a relationship with Jesus will give you the ability to transform your life; starting from the inside out. The young man decided in that moment to accept Christ into his heart. He signed up to join a church and MSP will be seeking to place him in Mission St. Louis– one of our program partners- for job training and search assistance.
‘Til next time…See YOU on the streets.
