Today marks 90 DAYS since we officially launched our site, blog, and went public with #lovebeyondwalls… It has been an amazing ride so far, and we hope to continue to change and impact lives all over the world.
It has been really cool to see our ten year history (severing the community) start to impact so many lives. God deserves all the credit.
Below is a quick update charting our movement over the last 90 DAYS… Of course it includes numbers
(which I don’t like sharing), but it at least reveals some sense of measuring. I have chosen to share this because we have had many supporters, donors, and people to sow into to our organization. We want to reveal to our supporters how they are helping us to move and impact lives!

God will continue to bless you and the organization because you are “ambassadors of Christ.” (his hands and feet) This organization is a “living example” of what people must see to be drawn to God’s unconditional love. Many blessings! 🙂
Thank you so much for your support, and encouragement. We ask that you continue to pray for our organization and work for God.
Admire the passion for helping people who are less fortunate than others. It’s not easy for someone who has nothing and have to survive on the street, the criticism they hear from others, and sometimes physical abuse. I’m very happy knowing that someone is thinking about homeless.
Thanks for your support brother! God bless you too!
