Small pieces make the big picture!

Have you ever collected many small puzzle pieces, and somehow it dawns on you that they all make up a bigger picture?

Well, that’s what has happened and keeps happening with our #mobilemakeovers project! The other day, my daughter and I decided to take the two front seats to a reupholstery shop five minutes away from the office… Upon our arrival, I spoke with the owner, showed him the seats, and waited for an estimate.

Little did I know he’d ask me why were we wanting the seats to be redone… Well, I shared our story and he got this look in his eyes… He looked at the seats, and then looked at me and said, “God wants me to help you… You all are out there ministering to people… we will do them at no charge!”

This touched me so much because little by little God has provided through random people to help us piece together our first mobile project!

Huge S/O to Banister’s Upholstery!

Less than 50 – Love Tour!

In less than 50 days, we are going to #loveGA by going on our first tour with our #mobilemakeovers bus! It’s called the #lovetour because we will mobilize/educate people, collaborate for change, and raise awareness for people living in poverty and experiencing homelessness!

We are going to travel the state and take love to multiple cities! More details to follow soon… The Countdown begins now!

Bus Update – Inside coming along!

This past weekend, our team led by Dave Douglass completed more work on the inside of the bus. It has been an amazing journey. We look forward to getting the bus on the road by the end of the month.

Below is a picture of Carlos & Andrew working on wiring the barbershop/salon in the first section.

Pop-Up Fashion Show!

We are excited! This Saturday, we are partnering with Sporty Gils, Inc. and their athletes to put on a pop-up fashion show to raise items for homeless teens. This is going to be really exciting because it will show the teens who are serving the importance of giving back to others, and the value of life. Check out the information below for details.

"Man or Male" Supports Love Feeds!

This past weekend, Derrick Bailey (Principal in Cobb) dropped off several boxes of food raised from a young men’s mentoring group called, “Man or Male.”

This group shows young men the importance of having character and integrity throughout their life. We will use these donations to resource many families that are food insecure in the area where our office is located.

Floors are in the bus!

For the last month or so (since I got off the bus), our team has be diligently working to get the bus up and on the road! It has taken tons of sacrifice, effort, and focus to work on the bus. Along the way, God has sent some really cool people to help out.

On Wednesday, Dave and Darren decided to lay the floors in the bus. As you can see from the picture below, the bus is really starting to change and transform on the inside…

Although we have won’t immediatly have the showers installed (still have more funds to raise), we are aiming to get the bus on the road to start mobilizing barbers/stylist, and people who want to make people over with the closet inside the bus.
