Very helpful! Especially if you want to effectively and genuinely reach out to homeless people.
It was great to hear the mission of Babysteps and how the group is structured and the ways we can help out. Good to know that you are a gospel-centered, Jesus-centered ministry.
You have to experience the joy of serving with this ministry. I served with my kids to help them see not only how blessed they are but also how Jesus cares about the poor and homeless, and that they are people of dignity, made in God’s image and just like us. Apart from God’s grace, we could easily be there too. Babysteps made serving easy to do but impactful to be a part of. Thanks for making this possible.
I met Michael. He shared his story with me and his faith. I got to pray for him and have a great conversation. He was very intelligent and has experienced some really tough things in life. My heart went out to him, and I am glad that I met him. I went home fully aware of God’s goodness, blessings, and thrilled that our church is empowered to do something to serve the homeless in Seattle.
These Relational Meal Events really show you how God is working in this world and where the Spiritual battle lines are drawn. This is the ground floor of God’s mission, and it’s amazing to be a part of.
If you’re looking for a practical way to get out and do something to help others, this is a great opportunity. There were a couple people in particular that I enjoyed talking with. I look forward to going back and connecting with them again.
I met a woman at the Relational Meal Event that was very excited we were handing out bibles. She said she had recently had all her belongings stolen, including her bible. She was thrilled to receive a bible and began sharing her favorite verses.
The Relational Meal Event was immensely humbling. I felt out of my element, but I’m so glad I went.
A conversation with a homeless person opened my eyes to my own ignorance. These people weren’t all as I had expected, down and hurt; some of them were laughing and smiling just because they had people who cared.
By being there to serve and love on the people who may see themselves as unlovely, it helps them feel accepted and loved and that’s what every person wants and needs, and there truly is nothing more powerful than love, especially the love that comes from Christ that will motivate someone to hope and see the light.
When I had asked a woman what her name was, she replied by saying she didn’t have a name because she was homeless. This really broke my heart but at the same time, I could see why; without the truth of how God saw her, she would feel that way about herself. What sets Babysteps Ministry apart from simply feeding or clothing the homeless is that through relationships we can help the homeless see how God sees them.
It is both a humbling and encouraging experience to interact with the homeless community in this way.
Every time I go out to one of these events I feel my confidence rising and the Lord helping me step out of my comfort zone more and more. It just starts to feel good to make those connections. Going to Relational Meal Events is truly a rewarding experience and the people out there really do appreciate us being there.
Totally a new experience for me. Seeing people on the streets is one thing, but interacting with them is another.
Being around good people, my brothers and sisters in Christ, always keeps me grounded and brings me back in my spiritual walk. At the Relational Meal Event, I briefly met Angelo with a couple other brothers. He actually showed up to church the following day!
I loved seeing people from our group mingle with the those who came to get lunch. It felt like we weren’t just serving them from afar, but meeting them where they were at.
