In Loving Memory of Diane Marie Carter
Dee, what a woman!! Loving, compassionate, kind, patient, caring, and so much more. Loyal to God, her husband Josh, children, family, friends, her church The Rock in Soulard, and also Men Standing Positive. Dee left an impact wherever she went and made everyone feel like family. Her hugs were something special and her smile would brighten your whole day. Always joyful and laughing, Dee will never be forgotten. Dee and her husband Josh were faithful MSP volunteers, regularly joining us for street outreach and main events. If you have ever been fed a meal while working with MSP, it was because of her. Late Tuesday night August 4th, Dee went home to be with Jesus after battling many long months in the hospital. She is no longer with us on earth, but forever in our hearts. We will one day see her soon in heaven. The entire team at Men Standing Positive extends all our prayers, love, and deepest sympathy to Josh and the entire family. Diane Marie Carter- Thank you for everything- who you are and all you’ve done. We will see you again very soon!
Boldness in Love // MSP Outreach Street Report
Saturday August 1st, 2015 the Men Standing Positive team prayed with many on the streets; two accepted Christ, and three filled out MSP Hot Sheets for extra assistance. It’s not everyday you get a chance to do street ministry with those truly led by the Holy Spirit and bold enough to unashamedly share God’s love. MSP Ministries has the great privilege of working with dedicated volunteers who even understand how to reach people most everyone would completely disregard. Many lives have been touched because someone on our outreach team had the courage to speak to them or even simply smile. Nowadays in our busy society, everyone seems to pay more attention to their phone than the person walking next to them or waiting in line at the store. Outreach isn’t just across the world in a foreign land; outreach is about reaching those at your job and those in your own neighborhood. You are surrounded by those people for a reason- you possess the love of God inside you and the ability to share it. So be bold- let the love that conquered the grave out for the world to see. It’s what they desperately need, they just don’t realize because they can’t see it. So show them- be bold.
Until Next Time… See YOU On The Streets!

Sharing Hope // MSP Outreach Street Report
Saturday July 25th, 2015 was a hot afternoon well-spent on the streets of St. Louis. The MSP Outreach team headed to Gravois Road, walking up and down the street stopping at gas stations and store front parking lots. Despite the intense heat, many people were out and about running errands or just trying to stay cool. Everyone we spoke to seemed excited about the upcoming Total Transformation Conference and a few even took extra flyers to pass out to others. Several people wanted prayer for healing; one lady had respiratory issues and one man’s sister dealt with cystic fibrosis. The team stood in agreement that all issues would cease in Jesus’ name. Last but not least, five people were led to Christ and six people filled out an MSP Hot Sheet for additional assistance. The summer heat didn’t stop God from moving in the lives of others as everyone followed His direction and voice.
Until Next Time… See YOU on the Streets!!!
God Knows What You Need// MSP Young Women’s Conference
Saturday June 27th, 2015 marked the 2nd annual MSP Young Women’s Conference at the Rock Church in Soulard. All participants had a life-changing evening as God’s presence filled the atmosphere. Despite the late start, host Anna Hetz got the crowd excited before a powerful time of praise and worship led by Shawn and Tanya. The three speakers, Mike “MiNiMe” Wuebbles, Candice Lauer, and Sheronda Money all shared inspiring messages of truth. Intermixed between the speakers, Teasha Brown had prepared three praise dances which further emphasized the words that came forth. During the altar call, several came forward for prayer, receiving deliverance and timely words of encouragement straight from the heart of God. Last but not least, all attendees received free dinner following the service and the chance to sign up for a variety of assistance programs covering topics like job training, counseling, and much more. Men Standing Positive would like to extend our deepest thanks to Pastor Ken and his wife Shawn of the Rock Church in Soulard, all volunteers, Crisis Nursery, New Life Evangelistic Center, Connections to Success, and People’s Community Action Center for helping make this night a success. It would not have happened without their support and dedication. We look forward to what God has in store for next year. Check out some testimonies below from those who came to this year’s conference.
Until next time… See YOU on the streets!
“The MSP Women’s Conference was really really good. Sheronda’s words and Teasha’s praise dances spoke directly to my heart. What God showed me that night has started to come to pass and actually manifest. I still fight fear, but I am not angry anymore- it has been gone since that night. I realized I need to go directly to God when issues come up and things go wrong. It was a very powerful conference.” – Angela
“I enjoyed the MSP Young Women’s Conference at The Rock Church in Soulard very much, and felt that God definitely had something for me through the Praise and Worship Team and the Speakers. The Praise and Worship Team did an excellent job of preparing our hearts for what God had for us to hear through the speakers. Pastor Mike Wuebbles encouraged us to truly listen when we feel God is speaking to us in our life, to consider and “check ourselves”, especially when the Word of God impresses upon our hearts an attitude or behavior that we need to change. Truly renewing our minds as Romans 12:2 tells us with the Word of God enables us to hear God’s voice clearly and shed behaviors and ideas that we may have held since childhood that are not true to God’s Word and who the Bible tells us we are in Christ. Candice Lauer did a wonderful job of encouraging us with scripture and the story of Peter walking on the water with Jesus in Mark 6. Candice challenged us with the idea that Peter walking on the water was in order to show us the power that we have in Christ, and that we should be asking God, “What water can I walk on today for you?” Keeping our eyes on Jesus always! Sheronda Money gave a powerful testimony of God’s redemption and power in her life to forgive and the restoration she has found in Christ. She led in a great time of Holy Spirit filled prayers of confession and healing for many present at the Conference needing redemption and transformation in their lives that only God can bring. I look forward to next year’s MSP Young Women’s Conference and hope that many more will be able to come for this encouraging and challenging time spent in Praise and Worship, and in hearing about the power of God through real-life examples in the lives of women who have discovered the freedom and power of God in their own lives.” -Dulce
Changing Lives on the Streets // Carry the Cross with MSP Report
Saturday June 20th, 2015 was the first Carry the Cross with MSP of the summer! The outreach had a positive turnout of volunteers including MiNiMe‘s dad, KG Wilson. He came in town to spend Father’s Day weekend in St. Louis. KG is a prominent activist and community leader in the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota. This was the first time the two of them had ever been on street outreach together. As the MSP team and volunteers walked the Soulard area, two people accepted Christ, three signed up for Hot Sheet assistance, and many others were prayed for and given words of encouragement.
Until next time… See YOU on the Streets!

The Steps that Count
Sunday March 29th, 2015, Pastor Frank Jackson and the congregation of the House of Prayer and Deliverance celebrated their 5 year anniversary. Family and friends came to show their love and support. A special service was planned and hostess Sheronda Money kept everything in order as she let God guide her. Following two words of encouragement from Anna Hetz and Candice Lauer, praise and worship, and children performances, Assistant Pastor Mike “MiNiMe” Wuebbles brought the Word. He spoke on the importance of stepping out into what God has called you to do, even if it seems impossible. Not everything in your life is ever going to be “just right” when it comes to going after your purpose. It’s the daily steps and diligent focus that really counts. You cannot expect to do the great things if you will not do the small things. Amidst the laughs, shouts, and complete silences, MiNiMe’s message made everyone stop and think about their purpose in life and why they may have never fully stepped out in faith. Following God and pursuing your destiny will not always be easy, but it will always be worth it in the end. To see more photos of the celebration Click Here!
