Let God Handle It

"We have a saying in Texas, “ain’t no hill for a stepper”. The crux of the saying, is that there is no problem or mountain big enough that can’t be conquered by an overcomer. The key to overcoming or removing the obstacle in your life is letting God be your Victor. God calls us to be overcomers, and He Himself assumes the duty of removing hindrances and obstacles enabling our success."

Warm Hug In Icy Cold

This happened Saturday morning on 2/28/2015. I went down by campus, where we get to minister, and there was ice on the railings where approximately 25 of our clients probably slept outside last night. I expected them to be grumpy and have frowns.
At 8 am, I got a hug from a guy who said,  "There are people who pass us by all the time. Today especially here in the cold. But you and your volunteers come down 6 days a week to help us out. Thank you." 
And several other clients were smiling and helping one another. 

Rails covered with ice.

On Your Mark, Get Ready, Set...6 PM March 5, 2015

Street Youth Ministry will participate in our second Amplify Austin city-wide 24-hour philanthropy campaign in March. Our goal is to use the Austin campaign to publicize our cause and work.

This will allow potential donors who don’t already know about us to learn more, gain interest, and donate. This is a great way to endorse the ministry that you already support with your donations.

If you'd be interested in pledging to help match new donations, please contact us. Last year 36 donors participated through Amplify Austin.

Current information can be found here.
