Redeem is very happy to announce that our luncheon raised all the funds we were needing to remodel our clothing closet into a boutique for ladies in our community! Renovations began this past month and are continuing. We plan to have a big Grand Opening once The Beautiful Exchange is fully ready for the ladies.
Our April outreach went really well. We had 18 volunteers go out and hit the streets of Columbus and Phenix City! We passed out care bags and roses, and there were many powerful encounters! We were able to help a husband and wife who were sleeping in their car find safe housing. One of our ladies celebrated one year of sobriety and stability after years of addiction and homelessness! We were also able to pray with multiple ladies and had three salvations!
This past Friday, we received many blessings. Praise Ministry Tabernacle catered our dinner for our volunteers. We received a very powerful teaching on the prophetic gift by guest speaker Mariel Villarreal. Church of the Highlands put together many Mother’s day gifts for us to give out to the ladies.
When we went out, we were able to minister to 25-30 people and have extensive ministry time with several ladies that are usually one-minute encounters! We are glorifying Jesus for all He has done!
If you would like to come out on one of our Friday night outreaches, please email Kristina@take-the-city.com.
My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
