Joshua House Homeless Ministry aims to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of the homeless on the streets of Delmarva. Thousands of people, here on Delmarva, are living in shelters or on the streets relying on local food ministries to survive. My father Pastor Chuck Reynolds searches under bridges, woods, and abandoned buildings, to give these people food and basic supplies needed to survive.
One of the many things I have learned from my father, there is no simple one size fits all solution to homelessness but a solution begins with compassion that literally means “to suffer with” and just show them love. He truly stays faithful to the cause. He has been working with the homeless for over 10 years; during this time he has tried to meet the physical needs as well as the spiritual needs of the homeless on the street.
Too often people forget about the homeless during the spring and summer months, but the reality persists despite the climate. I want people to be aware of the needs of the homeless. The seasons change how people operate and their ability to live safely. I hope to raise awareness. And if you don’t know, just ask what you can do to help. We can do better by the homeless by meeting them were they are at, show them love and compassion and help them to survive.
I Thank God for the mild winter and those who help this ministry to survive with generous donations. I alsothank God for the shield of protection he puts over my father and his kind and loving heart.
Love you dad
Remember, We are all spiritually homeless without Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 58:10-11 (KJV)10And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day: 11And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
