Welcome to His Streets Ministries!
From the desk of Pastor Joe
Sacramento was recently featured on the Oprah Winfrey show by hometown journalist and actress Lisa Ling. Ms. Lisa spotlighted the tent cities cropping up across the state's capitol which she reports is due largely in part to our high foreclosure rate as a result of the nation's economic fallout.
As I viewed the feature I saw many of the homeless men and women (whom we have ministered to here at His Streets Ministries) being interviewed. I can honestly say that it did my heart good to see them voice their opinions about the homeless situation here in Sacramento. Thanks to Ms. Ling and the Oprah Winfrey show, homelessness in Sacramento is getting the much needed attention it deserves.
Now at this time I ask you to agree with me in prayer for God to speak to the hearts and minds of those in authority over our city. I also ask you to pray for those now living in tent cities and elsewhere on the street, that God prepares them for life inside the walls. Many of our homeless neighbors aren't yet ready to make this transition from being outside to being inside and it will be a culture shock. Some may walk away from the idea of housing altogether because they feel it will rob them of their freedom to choose the streets as a way of life. So as you can see, your prayers are truly needed! If you are so inclined, you may post your prayer to our blog by clicking here.
May God bless you and keep you in his loving care,
Pastor Joe Talancon
