Please feel free to download, print and distribute this special edition of our Report. Time is of the essence, as they say. We need your prayers. We need financial support. We have $5 in the checking account and a lot of work to do.
I did the math, and over the last 23 years, The King’s Jubilee has served or provided about half a million meals to homeless people or to needy children or seniors on fixed incomes. We have distributed tons of clothing and blankets to families in need. We have moved dozens of houses full of furniture from those who needed to get rid of it to those who needed it but could not afford it. We have redistributed dozens of used computers to people who needed them to learn basic skills or school children in the inner city. We have purchased vehicles for other ministries who serve in Jesus’ Name, even once acquiring an electric golf cart to help a tutor get around Richard Allen Homes project with all her books and teaching tools.
We have done all this and more on a frayed shoestring, with no building other than my home and no salaried staff. I say all this to say we are tired and we need your help to do greater things in the next generation. Please dig deep and give generously.
We have stopped serving on Tuesdays in Philadelphia. The Word In Action International Ministries has been able to recruit more volunteers. Also, the city is closing the Ridge Ave. Shelter, in front of which they serve, as their second site. Then there is my health. I have just been running ragged, trying to keep the business going, serving two nights on the street, laying the groundwork for the future of this ministry, while doing battle with whatever demons are whispering in the mayor’s ear.
I’m tired and broke and my customers are tired of waiting three weeks or more for their icons.
