FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS......
The journey began in 2009 when, by the grace of God, an opportunity was provided to show the Jesus Film on the sidewalk outside, right in downtown Ephrata. We were there every 3rd Friday and during the 5 years of showing the Jesus Film, many school supplies, warm clothes, and personal hygiene supplies were handed out to help and encourage the needy. Christmas gifts were given to parents so their children were able to have a Christmas morning. This simply began as an outreach of showing the Jesus Film, and visiting and praying with those who came to see and experience. This outreach expanded as the team began walking the streets and listening to the stories of those sharing their brokenness.
