Homeless shelter project

hikers backpack and pop-up tent
to homeless individuals who

Project: CTWM is currently assisting homeless individuals
being re-housed to furniture their apartments. We need beds,
sofas, tables and chairs, pots and pans, dishes, linen and
towels, dressers and other household items. Remember, these are
individuals who have been living on the street and hence have no

getting to work. One of our homeless individuals walked 7.7
miles to and from work 5 days a week. CTWM contributed a bike

his work city.
Street evangelism - grab some

Medical Assistance - transporting

Visitation is a weekly endeavor to share the gospel with
the sick and shut-ins. Two local nursing homes are visited each
Sunday one in the morning: a CTWM volunteer conduct 2 teachings
at this nursing home and at the other in the afternoon we
participate in praise and worship.
Bethlehem House - CTWM is
currently looking for a building. Bethlehem House (BH) is a
mission house. Unfortunately, I hear too often from people
that they are not in a position to do what I do. BH will
give them that opportunity to transition into the mission
field fulltime, acquire training locally in preparation for
work at home and abroad. The house will have:
living quarters for missionaries who
will have opportunity to serve in BH and abroad or at
least spend the time learning how to do missions and
develop their own ministry as they feel lead to do.
BH will also have a guest
housing/retreat center for traveling pastors,
laypersons, missionaries passing through in need of
respite, or traveling on business -as means of financial
sustainability for BH
transition quarters for families
displaced or destitute - they will be taught parenting
and budgeting skills, along with opportunities to learn
a trade or start a business.
classrooms for instructions,
conferences and office.
kitchen and dining area which the
residence can dine at as well as being open for
community meals, for those that are hungry or homeless.
clothes closet and food pantry,
laundry room and baths for transients in need.
vegetable garden to help support the
kitchen with meals and the food pantry with healthy
coffee shop to draw the community in
safe play area for children.
housing for missionaries who are care
dependent and in need of a certified nursing assistance
or nurse to assist with their care.
These entities at BH will allow those
going into missions the opportunity to serve and learn the
how-to’s of missions. They will have a place to call home
and know that there will always be a place to return to
after they have given up all their earthly belongs to serve.
Yes, my hope is to have a house in every
state. This might sound a bit ambitious, but if He can
create the world in 6 days imagine what he can do in the
space of time with His guidance and resources. I know that
as of now BH is only a vision and all the entities have not
yet been identified but, I am sure as it is given birth to,
it will develop as YHVH sees fit. Built into BH are
businesses meant to sustain the mission. Of course we have
to be careful about the logistics of each entity to ensure
the quality of life and well being of all, and how many can
be helped and sustained in a living and working environment.
I ask that you all begin to pray for this undertaking and
So many cities have vacant and abandoned
buildings that are in need of refurbishing to bring life
back to communities. YHVH gave me verse 4 of this text:
Isaiah 61:1-4 "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon
me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings
unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the
prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the
acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our
God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them
that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the
oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the
spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of
righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be
glorified. And they shall build the old
wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they
shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many
IF YOU KNOW OF A BUILDING OR ABLE TO
DONATE A BUILDING PLEASE CONTACT US. ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
WITH YHVH THROUGH CHRIST OUR SAVIOR.
