Homeless In New Mexico

Not long ago, HIA shared the homeless outreach story (see Thursday, June 12, 2008) of Brother Matthias and his founding of the Brothers of the Good Shepherd. This week is a first-hand report on their ministry.

Check out the pictures! Brothers Charles and Gerard among others bring the life of Christ to the inner city homeless. Daily, at 3:15 pm they provide a sit-down hot meal for 100-200 people. Each day, the kitchen also serves breakfast and lunch for 20-30 people who are in a 37 day recovery program. Those in the program have come direct to the house from under bridges and living on streets. They receive clothing, shelter, a bed, counseling services and more. Brother Matthias founded the ministry in the 1950s and it has been operating non-stop since that time. The brothers also serve the poor in other locations such as Toronto, Hamilton and Miami to mention a few.

Please pray for my cousin Mike who is in his early 50’s and is battling cancer, lupus and heart valve problems. His cancer goes in and out of remission, but he is so fatigued all the time. May God grant him healing and health, if it be His Will. His mother died at 49 of Breast cancer, and yet he is such a positive and wonderful person. I pray for the Lord to give him strength and peace that surpasses all understanding!

Blessings, Pam
