I want to let you know about WEWILLGO, a ministry founded by a couple that I went to church with several years ago. God has given David and Amy Lancaster missionary hearts and He is doing great things through them. While they regularly go to other countries to spread the Good News, they also sold their home in Rankin County and moved their family to downtown Jackson. They hold worship services in their home...along with prayer walks and free "garage sales." They feed many and give out goodie bags to anyone that comes to their door in need...containing a few personal hygiene and food items, a t-shirt and a simple translation of the Bible. They get to know their neighbors and have formed relationships with them...showing God's love in a real way...being the hands and feet of Jesus.
I know the Lancasters and I believe that their love of Jesus is making a difference for the Kingdom. They welcome anyone to come join in on what God is doing in Jackson. Here is a schedule of activities: http://wewillgo.org/index.html
They can use donations (contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of needed items). They can use prayer. And they can use others to come along side them to help reach out to the poor...the hurting...the lonely...the forgotten...you know, the kind of folks Jesus hung out with.
