New Orleans is an urban center, and, because of that, some of the same issues that are found in most urban centers around the world are present in our city. We have a homeless population and we strive to love on them and share Christ with him.
The reason that your team has requested to do homeless ministry is so that you can help someone who is in need, but we are all in need in some way or another. You may have a nice house, but you may need a friend. You may have lots of friends, but you may need help in school. We all need something, but the most important thing that we need is to know Christ and to have people treat us with dignity and love.
