Montgomery Community Church from Cincinnati, Ohio, spent time at Urban Hope Philadelphia helping the homeless, doing prayer walks, and outreach at Mifflin Park. The group also helped with the Fourth of July block party.
Two participants talk about their experience:
Grant, “My perspective of people that have less than me changed. It has humbled me in a sense that makes me want to adopt a mission mindset in everything I do. God’s done great things here and there are greater things to come.”
Nathan, “Yes, I was a Christian before this trip, but I did not understand the importance of sharing my faith and truly living it out every day. This trip revealed to me that I need to involve God in my conversations and be a light for Jesus.”
Delaware Grace from Delaware, Ohio, visited Urban Hope Philadelphia. The group installed smoke detectors in neighborhood homes, did a prayer walk, and outreach at Mifflin park. They also came to Urban Hope Church Sunday morning, plus did homeless outreach, and helped with the Fourth of July block party.
Sam, a ministry participant, talked about the experience. “While meeting with the homeless, I met a man who was a wildly talented artist. I prayed with him and was reminded that even though they’re homeless, they’re still people with gifts, dreams, hopes, fears, etc.”
