Auburn Grace Community Church from Northern California served at Urban Hope Los Angeles July 8-13. The group of 13 was mostly middle school students. They helped with the Saddleback Food Pantry, ran a kids program at the local Southern Cal Park, helped the homeless on Skid Row partnering with the Fred Jordan Mission, did beach ministry in Seal Beach, and started conversations at the Grand Central Market in Downtown LA.
Testimonies from students:
“I will share Jesus more with others. I realized my life is not mine, it is His. I am here to serve Jesus!”
“My time at Urban Hope LA opened my eyes for people who are in need and to do more daily devotions. And to start some sort of get together about God and soccer at the greens which is an apartment complex that has kids in need of the Word”
Testimony from an adult leader:
“It put a fresh fire in my heart to continue to look daily at who God wants me to interact with.”
