Through the Praise of Children

It’s summertime!

Teens are at the beach or partying at friends’ houses.  Families are travelling in the car or at the mall escaping the heat.  But who might have time to help the homeless receive water and nourishment preventing dehydration and untimely deaths?

“O Lord, through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.”  Psalm 8:2

But we give praise to God!  This past weekend, Christ who lives in the homeless received rescue from unlikely heroes; many CHILDREN (photos), their moms and dads made life a little better for hot, thirsty and starving homeless people, 70,000 + in Southern California and beyond.  It was an outpouring of love in our city streets, under bridges and in parks ranging from central Ventura to Chinatown and downtown Los Angeles.

“God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” 1 Corinthians 1:27

Enjoy the pictures from the weekend!
