This past week, we got a chance to build a prototype for the VR in partnership with 48in48. Additionally, we have and also have had several people test the prototype and the response has been amazing.
We just wanted to give a huge thank you to 48in48 for aiding us in building a solid prototype.
We are blown away by the provision we’ve experienced. Many people say it’s the small things, but we believe that literally.
Today, our shipping container was delivered to our Center.
The countdown begins of letting people know what this will become.
Here’s a recap from our recent “Gather Atlanta” in the heart of the city!
We are leading “A Movement of Doers” from all walks to love those who are vulnerable and living on the margins of society.
One of the great things about our “Gather Atlanta” serve days is that people come from everywhere under the umbrella of love to build relationships with those experiencing homelessness and poverty and to take #lovebeyondwalls
A Place To Stay
We met Eric a little over a month ago through a partner church (The Midtown Bridge Church). Not only does he work, but he also has amazing talents and skills.
For the last month or so, we’ve been walking with him out of homelessness with a temporary place to stay.
He says, “I work and still don’t make enough to pull myself out. I work almost every single day.”
We are learning that the experience of homelessness is NOT one size fits all, and we should never generalize someone’s experience.
Because of your support we are able to give our friend a temporary home.
