The More To Life Ministry is a weekly outreach that takes place in downtown Spokane, Washington. Each week we help feed the homeless, helpless or hopeless of Spokane. For a three month period, we served a weekly meal to around 100 homeless people at the Spokane Arena.
Many people are in need of hope. Those who live on the streets or in very poor conditions, feel the most hopeless of all. They wonder if anyone really cares. Their resources are very limited. What they do own, for many, can be carried on their own backs. All they need is a glimmer of hope that it’s going to be okay. The reality is that they are not going to be okay without Jesus.
This ministry recognizes that getting people to Jesus is top priority. But we also believe that in order to get people to Jesus we must first take Jesus to them. That is why we feed them a simple meal. It meets a physical need in their life. By doing so, we show them the love of Jesus rather than just tell them. Along with handing out a simple meal, we tell them that Jesus loves them, cares for them, and is waiting for them to reach out to him.
Sometimes the conversation is left at that. Other times, we are able to share the message of Jesus with them and lead them to invite him into their lives. Eventually, I would like to see this evolve into a weekly service where people come to a specific location to hear the message of Jesus.
