It has been really rainy this year and we tried to get out there and distribute as Much free warm winter clothing as we could to the homeless and to shelters within the city. Our challenges have been the odd things this year, mostly issues fighting the bylaws and city ordinances compared to normal things as in past years.
July has passed and we are very pleased that God's mercy has allowed us to be apart of all that is happening downtown Toronto despite the setbacks!! Our preaching has come under fire as the enemy has brought the local officials against us threatening us telling us to stop preaching or we will be arrested.
Well its been a crazy start to 2015 with alot of our ministry options shifting to our main preaching location at Yonge and Dundas. Many of the homeless are now taking up permanent residence at Yonge and Dundas either in the Square or along the street. I have been preaching down there for years and have never seen so many homeless people living at Yonge and Dundas.
2015 is here and we are ever grateful to the Lord that we are able to once again go out and serve the needy. This Winter has been very cold as usual and we are making plans as we speak to get the winter wear and winter kits into the hands of the homeless in downtown Toronto.
I can hardly beleive how time is flying by. We are already thinking ahead to our Summer Outreach Ministry. Winter was one we will never forget and with so many new partners that came along side us we saw the homeless of downtown Toronto receive many vital items that helped them make it through what was the coldest winter in Toronto's history.
February was indeed a very difficult month for Toronto's homelesss. The average temperature was -20 wind chill daytime and it made it especially difficult for those that were not heading into shelters or were turned away. But Souls for Christ Ministries was there to aid in the help of Toronto's homeless.
This week and all month we have had a major focus on downtown preaching. As the Lord has lead me to be more burdened to get his Word out, we believe that time is indeed short. Therefore as a ministry called in these last days to preach Christ we are challenged to get double the tracts and literature out we ever did before.
