John management you are alive and WWL desperate reality facing the truth how are you tonight. I'm well out here in Colorado fantastic. And how is Colorado. Well you know Beatty who's guys. Didn't mark up to this summer without rain showers it's. It's just greatly debated. I've seldom hear the truth William around the country with rescue missions all over North America. Well first of all you know David is this year a lot of great things. About Choo and any anyone that's in the work. Of Christ and helping or hurting people. It's God's work it's not out pork and we're aware. I got says that his plan good works in advance us that do for those who have been called annual one of those guys John and before I get to the rescue missions. You know I wanna I wanna know a little bit about the man behind. That in the gospel rescue missions and you're the president of the organization correct. I. So wind tunnels when the that'll start EU before there was you've got involved in rescue missions I'd like to hear a little bit about that we've. Well I was eighty. So four major in college in Philadelphia. That had killed were assignments and took me all over the city including being. Probation officer parole officer number one plus one German countless Stokley for. Some people may know early and and but and I went and worked at Christian camp and conference association. For. About fifteen years so I came over to the association of gospel rescue missions from another association. So I'm I've been nine years was that AG program. Let's dig a little bit about. I'd like to know where. And I know we don't have all the a lot of a lot of time. But I do you wanna know we wait where your heart for serving god in helping people. Was that went a long ago was that when you really fell in love of Christ. And you were born again and you begin to. To love people who share the good news. My parents were missionaries in rural America which shall something unique stack in the fifties. They traveled the soul bill and many details about Colorado wild and so I. Grew up in the front row sort churches or places where they were playing in an age eight. Yes my mother to explain to me ally and the personal relationship with Christ like she does. Explain to others started there and that. My parents started Christian camp and so that that was kind of connection to campaign in futures in I went to so it. Biblical universe in which it now culture universe and had pre school and. And came back and started working at that Christian can't sort involved in Danish three. Four for many years. You know it's a beautiful thing and I and I I'm just we just I mean I'm so grateful for Timmy I remember when David we you know prior to coming to Louisiana. You know it was it's a way of life it was a way of life to you to bring people and the chair Christ and bring him in in in our home and and and Sheehan along with them and some needed needed detox and you know it. When we was sent to the mission. God was god made it very pleased at this and that is a big house it's my house you you lift me up nine day. I'm gonna do miraculous things and he sure has done that field through. Threw myself David and the entire staff what they this 300 missions and his what's exciting we. We would love and where this is a first step we feel. We have we wanna encourage the body price to go win the loss that's that's what we're commanded do as Christians. And I believe a lot of the missions have been raised up in south and in some ways because it church struggles to do that. And by god but god is faithful. 22. Raise up the missions to take in people as they are in any condition with the hope that they might come to know Christ. And as the president involved with 300 missions we hope one day to be a national program. Where people can call in from any area. And we can point them to one of the Ichiro missions. And we just wanna believe god to film. Not just what will people that are hurting but also the support the man Pollack volunteers and the finances. As it church comes together. As one body. That excites me what do you think about that. Well I love the idea of a national program there are so eye connections at the Rome radio programs but. To do something as a network is as always exciting to see what's happening. I'd down in New Orleans look what the work you guys are doing this is equally exciting. What do you sees going on the missions across the country now what's the temperature or do you see that is more and more. Desperate this is more are you seeing and in flocks are you seeing. More more people who are losing much and god as is drawing them to the missions. What what what interest is that the government. Keep saying it is wonderful that homelessness is going down and we ended occurred almost as in this charity or we are seeing. From the government programs taking over and we have a 50% drop and homelessness. Ironically our missions in those cities are seeing more people than maker virtually. So what's happening is if you can probably figure out the government. Just has the ability to change the definition of what has so when he can do it at. Used in the numbers. Say what you want in this but our nation's. Almost all more coal. Every night and double double sweep and sanitize the common space like chapel. Cafeteria. And roll out maps and have people that are. One of the things that really is alarming is how things are changing for from Portland to gender people who were coming. I wanted to or armed actions and Los Angeles and for the first time in their entry. In June. Eighty. So women seeking services surpassed the number of beds while seeking services. And so if you can visualize. You know like height chart you know the circle. Two thirds of that. Are the people who were single individuals that that circle of people who were knocking on the door for rescue mission. Tonight's somewhere in North America. Two thirds searching individuals. Once there family units. 51%. Of that ones that are women children and it's just seem to be growing. Well I think as we know as believers we know that the world is. Use is dark we know there's a falling away taken place. The people losing their homes that the addictions. We're seeing we're seeing an influx here for a lot of young people. It's 1819. That are. You know this some of whom are. They get they get seem seemingly great parents. There well off and their kids are. Just into the math and into the different drugs and which do you see an influx in young people come into the missions at all. Young people are our art our very unusual way to approach almost of their that's not to say that there are a lot of young people who are. Into all of these things but. The EDD. The whole war homeless and it. Congregate and he does different cities in it just kind of you lean on each other support and hope things get really really. As I know would do what you guys are encountering there in the neutral with a so it is not the first place that they you know they go to other friends for help. Until like I said. It's it's not possible to get the support they need and then what happened picture and action but then you'd get an actor works. Yeah that's probably why it's so typical. What do what are the big things that you know as as. Gifting of of the preaching and evangelism. And a seventeen years ago when I came to Christ. You know the burden for the lost. The bird in two to witness that take people and in the church living together elect the ax church and and sharing what they have and and use in the gifts. In the body of Christ. It was was something we see is a family unit and I often see here in our mission. With the disciples ship program. I see that element you know it's almost like. There at that there at the feet of the apostles you know inscription there at the feet of the teaches in the in the passes. And the council is we teach in a word of god we share enough food we shared our clothing it's really a lot like the church should be. Orbit and and will. And so encouraging. You mentioned you're a moment ago encouraging to see how many young people are actually coming to a certain. I think it to help. And they'll love that idea fracture after two as Sharon and to have a common. I I I talked to people are about. Lou what you're seeing with with a young people are actually what I'm saying that the and it certainly is the case young people who are committed to Christ our. RRR. Are all about leaving. That. Their world in better condition. And if Albert and actually get a lot of young people used to go on missions trips and they're halfway the airport now that you know why are we going to Argentina look who's on the sidewalk here around go back. And so I'm seeing more and more young people serving. I'm not just serving food but serving as counselors and being involved in emissions. For particularly kind of stuff you do their normal. I wanna bring up a subject that I think is. And again not that I I. We know what you well each other well or even much at all we got to know each other even tonight and number gratefully gonna wanna thank you for. For calling in to my job to give a lot of our I wanted to go ball one maybe one more ratio and and that is as every description whip with the possible. We sharing and the other same tactics they use. 2000 years ago. When he was preaching the gospel and got arrested. And they they get they conferred and what they said was. Willing to do with these men. That they're they're they're preaching this gospel and and what they came up was we when we wanna keep them silent and they and they went that the that it went to the apostle. And Andy after a flogging them and they told them we want you that you shut up about this Jesus. And Paul looked at them as it should we Obey god or man. And and then they said something remarkable. They said we can't help but speak about what we've seen and heard and I and I wanna encourage Christians. You know to. To be in that place would say that compelled. To share and that's what these rescue missions of Dylan and and today we live in and day in day as you know John. We have the little blue blue laws of the land the changing. And it's nothing new. In many countries so many people are being brutalized in terrorized merited. And be in for the cause of Christ and in America we see this trend building. We aero when more and more. The Christians are going to be told to shut up all they're gonna go to jail for reaching the truth. The I'd like to hear thoughts on that. Yeah it really is we have and Washington DC if you can imagine because all things happening with governments that are. Are are caught they go to scripture and a long awaited outlets work work. A nation particularly. When you're providing accommodations. There's a book that I'm actually read it. You call it's dangerous to believe by the area are stacked against it really talks about religious freedoms and the here in the 20% tree in the cold there as you know scriptural supposed to be why circuit. And almost is done. And and I think there's a lot of ways that rescue mission can work with government incur a reasonable time. Don't look at government as the enemy. But make sure you'd go injury is because there are a lot of people in government. Coo really do understand. That Christian values Al spoke at. And he's been in Washington DC. A year or so back. And we were. People from the interagency council homelessness and and human services and and veterans affairs and and I I did. Mention Jesus what we did somebody came up afterwards. And so you know protect the country has ever been. And then they said I deal. And so they said look over those people raise their hand at work for. Or what the government agencies and they are all questions they'd be you know and so there's people in government. That really do want to see things. Change in the streets of America is the answer. Yea you know and I am now my brother we've been you know we've been honored and blessed to be doing missions were heaved again years before the the the opportunity at the annual league's mission. And marketplace ministry in shared with in the advertising and on the streets and you know I I say that because. Together been very encouraged and he's been encouraged. To bring up Christ in and he does that meets along with the city officials and and and you know we we. It spur one another Iran to mentioned. The name of a bubble lights and who who gets all the glory. And with that we've seen as you just said the committee officials. Thinking thanking him hey thanks for sharing Christ and mentioning the truth and this is suffering for that as well Jon Heyman is a suffering. This year in the gospel for. Doughnuts right I wanna ask you last question what would you say. To the church. And you know we read in scripture. That the church when we waited too in the loss in the highways and byways and to bring them and feed them and clove them each year with those that come to Christ. That's churches call and a lot of times. They've left it to the rescue missions and I'm grateful listen grateful for. That's the rescue missions and the people let that opened their whole hearts and homes to the loss. But what would you say to the church soup to. How how. If he had one thing to say to them as far as getting involved in and supporting and rallying around as one family would say that your. I would say don't leave it to rescue missions to do the job. There are so many things that church is in do you know our our our. Christianity. Has been in North America has gone to several different phases and indeed it. Ministry was done by single church. But when when communications and transportation all the strange change back in the eighteen hundreds denominations came straw. And the nominations are opening. Publishing houses Bible colleges seminaries in the typical person in the church go push back for ministry. And that happened again and again like when what we have Eric church's commitment to World War II milligrams of the Angeles beat association kept scores across all those organizations. They kept pushing people back from the front lines because of the outfits were here then Eric church organizations. We kind of people wait to make the church organizations. But what I'm seeing today is ministry is no longer. Eric church driven or make it church trip in Austria than. And many cases you'd led technology. And with that there are a lot of opportunities to get injured have young people comment serve and and that be part of what's going on. And so I would say the church. Albeit in each be involved. Not just that much what loading it up to the ranch in action and and. You may indeed have the rescue mission and show them that the specifics servers church is that they have Angel crack addict. But at the same time there are a lot of things the church is due in part. Well I listen I I couldn't agree with you more and and you know one of one of off our philosophies is the year when you say. Don't leave it to the missions the rescue missions I couldn't agree on a percent Mo we serve a purpose for season for many for hundreds of men and women. And and after twelve months we hope that the person is. Has faith in Christ they fall over Jesus they know him deeply. And they on their round. Are ready to you find a local church. Where they wanted to. That have been told that they they have art ago and they wanna be fed and they find a family and the church takes old from that point. And that that's. It I think that helps us because. We don't feel like we have to do everything. We have them for twelve months or six months or whatever that time frame is. And we plan water and we have to trust god to grow them whether they follow Christ for the rest of their days. Or not I wanna thank you John for Iraq calling and and hanging out with us and I just sharing your heart I'm like look phony get a no via a little bit more and we just really grateful and we look forward to these. The increase. Even though you tell me it's on the missions have their already a program. We hope to be a program that we get hundreds of call is that we can send into the missions that you are president over.
