Redeem has been consistently going out on Fridays to pour the love of Jesus to many women, children and families. On one particular night, God had a different plan.
While two of our team members were walking by a hotel door, they heard a beautiful voice singing unto the Lord. They knocked and waited patiently to meet the person behind the voice. He answered with open arms. The young man said he had been living in the hotel after losing employment and being unfairly treated while teaching music.
Ellen and a few others gave him a rose and shared God’s love with him. Ellen led him into a forgiveness prayer that helped him forgive those that had hurt him. The presence of the Lord fell upon him as he forgave being hurt, manipulated and deceived throughout his music career. He was blessed by the time our team took to pray with him and help him see how forgiveness was holding him hostage.
Our Redeem team would like to be able to lead more to forgiveness and knowing the love of God. We need your help. You can join Jaketra each Thursday at the house of prayer for intercession at 7am. Another way to get involved is to join her on Friday night street outreach. If you are interested, please contact her at Redeem@take-the-city.com.

My experience with the Take the City crew was like coming into a family. Our team was welcomed in with open arms with like-hearted believers who love Jesus and have laid down their lives to serve the broken of the city! It was an honor to come alongside them, be welcomed into their homes, share meals, and experience the transformational work that God is doing in and through them to see His Kingdom come.
