On Friday nights, we go out to the streets to offer hot drinks and bread, inviting the homeless to join us for a service and a free meal the following day.
Every night, 50-70 homeless men gather at the City of Refuge (Ciudad Refugio). The bottom floor is available to anyone looking for a dry, safe place to sleep. One of the leaders always shares from the Word before lights out.
In some ways, the homeless shelter serves as a gateway into the drug rehab; those demonstrating a heart for the Lord and a desire to change are given the opportunity to join the program on the second floor where they live in a structured environment for one year. Here the men of the program are enjoying lunch together. Classes are also held in this same room.
