This week's "Story from the Street" comes from Bethany Harris who has has been serving with us for the last 7 months at Unity Park. We hope that through these stories, you get a glimpse of what God is doing with the homeless in Fort Worth, as well as be inspired to pray and seek how God might use you and your family to love "the least of these."
The truth is I never intended to be impacted the way I have been with volleyball tournaments with the homeless. I’m so blessed to be a part of the City on a Hill Missions ministry on Saturday mornings. The first time I went was when there was a fall festival being held. I went with my friend Katie. Me and Katie prayed with a lady whose mother had just died and we also, prayed with another lady whose stuff had just been stolen the night before (they even took her glasses). We also helped out a table of arts and crafts with face painting and making necklaces. My favorite part was helping this little girl make a bracelet.
After 7 months of serving with this organization, I now understand the meaning of love and all of its forms. It definitely goes beyond you and me. I feel so connected to these folks and their families. It’s truly remarkable to see it unfold every Saturday morning between prayers, stories, and smiles and yes volleyball with the most amazing people.
They are humble even in their circumstances and trials and they all seem to be joyful despite their circumstance. Now, I can honestly say I cannot imagine not being a part of this beautiful ministry. Sharing God’s love with these folks makes my whole week. I feel led by God to be a part of this great ministry.
We welcome you all to come and be a part of something different, something that gets to the core of your heart. I really believe in these three things: Jesus+unity+community! Please join us and be a part of this beautiful ministry on Saturday mornings at Unity Park in Fort Worth at 9:30am. Get connected today with a ministry that has made such a difference in my life. I pray it can make a difference in your life as well.
