New Life Church from Indianapolis, Indiana, visited Urban Hope Philadelphia July 12-14. The group of 13 students and adults did a prayer walk, talked with people at Reading Market and did homeless outreach. They also joined Urban Hope Community Church for their Sunday morning service and lunch!
Comments from three participants:
Showing us the life people have here is scary because I could be one mess up away from that. Then I look at my life and think it’s bad but then I come here and realize I’m blessed.
God opened my eyes that, for one, I take things for granted, and two, now I don’t just see it was a city I see a world that desperately needs Jesus/God and hope.
I never wanted to talk about my faith, I was too scared to be different and always wanting to fit in. I am a shy person, but it should not stop anyone from just talking to people. God wants us to go out and give people hope and that’s what I need to do.”
