Redeem – Reuniting Family

November 23, 2020

19 year old girl is reunited with her son and family for thanksgiving this year. Right before the holidays, our team was able to help a young girl that had been arrested along with others who we believe were trafficking her across state lines. Our team was able to minister to her and even have women in our coffee shop prayer over her! As we were walking away, she told me, “I still feel power flowing through my body”. Through the weekend we saw her light up with JOY and worship God. We were able to get her into a safe place to rest and then send her back home to reunite with her two year old son and family! We believe God has big things in store for her in the future and will plan to stay in touch with her as she begins her journey of wholeness.  If you would like to get involved with helping women out of trafficking, sign up on our...

East Highland Food Distribution



Our ministry is seeing incredible things happen in the East Highland Neighborhood of Columbus, Georgia. We, the Bedsoles, have launched a community-driven food drive that is a part of our Project Lifehouse initiative’s efforts in the community. The number of people coming and participating has increased every time! It’s amazing how we’re seeing dignity restored to the area as the community is coming together and serving! We are thankful and excited to announce that our food drive is now supported in part by a grant from the Coronavirus Response Fund. This is a HUGE answer to prayer and just one powerful example of what God is doing in our city! The Bedsole Family moved from Oregon to serve in our city and live in one of our missionary homes. They are excited to help partner with the neighbors in this community to encourage and empower them to see redemption and restoration in their area. If you would like to get involved with Project Lifehouse, call Louis Chalmers at...

Thankful for LifeHouse Volunteers and Partners



During this season for Thanksgiving, we give thanks to the Lord for the many volunteers, donors, and ministry partners that have contributed energy, time, sweat, and resources to complete our Lifehouses on Bradley Circle (Bibb City), Young Avenue, and 26th Street (East Highlands). The past 3+ years, we have had 4 urban missionary families who have been able to live, serve, and share the love, joy, and peace of life found in Jesus Christ.

We are prayerfully asking that you and your church family considers becoming LifeHouse partners with us in 2021.

Cindy – Once Broken, Now Redeemed

November 1, 2020

The day I met Cindy I knew God had a special plan for her life. Little did I know that the journey ahead of us would be one of both heartbreaking and joy-filled moments.   First Meeting Cindy I remember it clearly, the day we picked up Cindy from the Burger King downtown. This spunky small blonde girl with all her stuff in trash bags greeted us with a spark of hope in her eyes. She stayed with me in my apartment for three nights since we didn’t have a safe house at that time. During those three days, we shared our hearts and worshiped together for hours. I remember her weeping and encountering the Lord in such a radical way as I sang Reckless Love over her. I began to watch her destiny come to life. She was ministering to others at DRC, healing the sick, and ALWAYS praying. She was and still does live out the scripture “pray continuously” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).    The Next Couple of Years The next couple years, I saw her fall.. yet my belief in her destiny never quivered. I KNEW deep down she had roots that wouldn’t let the world win. Though Cindy would fall, she would get back up again. I remember getting calls from her in jail. Cindy was having a hard time sleeping; we’d pray and sing Reckless Love together, both with tears streaming. God ALWAYS met Cindy and loved her tenderly where she was. I remember her connecting me with countless women in the jail with her, and I was able to help them because of her....

Thoughts From The Prayer Room

October 29, 2020

Gratitude for Weakness Feeling weak… Last week was difficult and at first I had no idea why. I found it difficult to pray or even worship the Lord. Discouragement set in; then despair; then apathy. All the while I could feel myself losing connection with the Lord more and more. As I lost connection with Him I began to lose connection with the people around me as well. I felt isolated, quite miserable, and even a little hopeless. All of this happened within a 24 hour time frame without any major identifiable cause. Then, suddenly, something amazing happened.  Gratitude for weakness… I was driving in my car, stuck in my own pity party, when all of a sudden the Holy Spirit brought to my remembrance 2 Corinthians 12:9… “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” I felt my shoulders relax, my mind set at ease and my heart fill with gratitude for God’s power being made perfect in my weakness. Those negative feelings didn’t hold the same power they did before and I had an inner joy flood my entire soul. My whole week from that point on was outstanding, filled with amazing moments of family fun, fulfilling work, and most importantly my connection with God was reaffirmed.  Weakness is not a disqualifier… This experience was honestly a first. I’ve thanked God for many things in my life, but never have I thanked Him for my weaknesses! In...

TTC led me out of darkness and into the love I’ve longed for my entire life, the love of JESUS.  They’ve taught me to love like Jesus by walking out my created purpose.  My Spirit has been healed, I am whole, because of their obedience to do God’s will.  They have introduced me to and welcomed me into a powerful tribe of women that love Jesus with their whole heart.  Women that strengthen, teach, support, and encourage one another with the power and authority given by the Holy Spirit.  I am eternally grateful for their ministry and humbled to be called family.
