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.

TAKE THE CITY outreaches have been so special to me. I love being able to see the hand of GOD move in peoples lives as they are healed and families restored. GOD cares about every detail of our lives and he reaches the places that only HE can only heal! Its been an honor to see all the teams go out and share the LOVE that GOD has instilled and filled the teams with, and let it pour out to all the community. Having physical needs met also assures all we encounter, the faithfulness of our Father. So many times I have cried seeing what GOD is doing… Being able to see people brought into the KINGDOM and freedom Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Is the greatest treasure in my life. I am grateful for TAKE THE CITY allowing me to have front seat and seeing GOD move in peoples lives!
