First of all, thank you to everyone who donated presents towards our Christmas Toy Drive and came and wrapped presents! Our goal was 60 presents, and we were able, to instead, bless 180+ children for Christmas! The joy on the children’s faces as they opened their gifts Saturday December 19th was truly priceless. Thank you.

Along with the wrapped presents, we were able to give out a few more things. One, we were able to bless 10 families of four with homemade Christmas dinners provided by an all-natural restaurant on 2nd Ave. Secondly, we were able to give out 316 candy canes with the message “Nothing you confess could make Jesus love you less” on them. Thirdly, we gave out several Gospels of John. Every gift was a gift of blessing and hope.

In total, we sent out five teams in Columbus, GA and Phenix City, AL Saturday December 19th. During those outreaches, one little 3rd grade girl gave her life to Christ and received a children’s Bible, 4 people were physically healed, and many people were prayed for. Each team returned to Take the City with plenty to share about what God did in their neighborhoods. We are thankful for how the community came together to share the love of Jesus and bless our neighbors with practical needs. God is so good.

If you would like to go out on outreach or volunteer with our local outreaches, please email katherine@take-the-city.com.

I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
