Here comes Steve, a retired, humble, respectful veteran who we met at Skid Row 3 years ago. He’s come to visit from time to time just say hi. Last Sunday he came with his car very excited telling me he is working for Uber now. He got a job. He can walk independently. All these things happen because of God’s grace and miracles. Steve committed coming to serve the community he left 3 years ago. Praise the Lord.
POLICE OFFICERS SAID “THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICES FOR THE COMMUNITY.”
Last Sunday we had double parked in front of parking lot. Suddenly while we were packing to leave, a police car stopped right behind our car. I immediately approached the officers’ car, apologizing and explaining we would move in minutes. The officers said, “Don’t worry. We just want to let you know that we thank you for your services for the community.”
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord. To God be the Glory. Amen. Amen. Amen!
Melinda Rodriguez is another great testimony, of God’s grace and love in her life. Congratulations Melinda! We are proud of you. Love you!
Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV) – “5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
Let’s sing “Hallelujah. Praise the Lord.” Amen!

Yesterday some brothers and sisters asked me “Jennifer are we still meeting at Skid Row if it’s pouring?”. “Yes. It will stop when we get there.”
Yesterday till 9:20pm I couldn’t find anyone available to help us to pick up burgers at 7:45 am this morning and bring them to Skid Row to serve. The only choice at that time was – I pick up and have no time to share the message with our friends. I prayed for God’s will. Sure enough, at 9:30pm brother Jamie Jaramillo who I didn’t ask, offered to help. I shared the Happiness with our Church. And shared the message of How to be Happy as God’s plan.
No Joy – No Strength. It’s not your problems that are problems. It is the way you see your problems. When God and others are more important to you than yourself, that’s where you find your happiness. Our true happiness is in Jesus and our future with Him. If we are faithful, we can have unspeakable joy and fullness of glory now, in this life.
2 Corinthians 4:18 (ESV) – “as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
During today’s service, I noticed a man was focused, listening to God’s Word and wiping his tears. When I asked, “What is your response to God’s calling?” The man, Arthur, stepped out and humbly accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Halleluiah! To God be the Glory!
May all people respond “YES” to God’s calling in 2019.
Happy New Year to you and your loved ones! Keep spreading the Good News. May God use you to the fullest. Amen.
Praise God; our friends finally got attention. The dream becomes reality. With God all things are possible. Thank You, Lord! Amen.

Jesus Knows My Name Ministry has been serving at Skid Row for over four years. On Easter of 2016 by God’s grace and guidance we started our Lord Jesus Christ’s church – Church without Walls, to follow Jesus’ footstep as He shared the Word of God to 5,000 on open ground. Two years later we are blessed to witness God’s transforming works among our friends.
Mark 4:9 – Jesus said to His disciples, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
A friend takes two buses, walking with a cane to attend Jesus’ church every Sunday. Friends come early to help set and clean chairs and tables preparing for the church service and fellowship, and later help serving food. They claim, “THIS IS OUR CHURCH.”
John 4:37-38 – “37 For in this case the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. 38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for; others have done the hard work, and now you have taken up their labor.”
1 Corinthians 3:5-7 (ESV) – “5 What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.”
A Text Message
Friday 08/24/2018, 9:14pm
I received this text message from one of our church members:
“Hello, Jennifer I just had an urge to say what an inspiration you are to me at a time in my life when I felt hopeless. If you remember on Sunday after you spoke I said to you Jennifer today I really listened. I felt a shift inside of me. I will not question it but I will own it and let it grow. Thank You.”
GOD DID IT.
Thank you, God, for trusting us. We submit our lives to You. We pray for Your will in our lives. We pray for Your wisdom and guidance to accomplish Your divine will on earth. Use us to the fullest. We humbly pray in Your precious Son Jesus’ name. Amen.
2 Corinthians 9:7 (ESV): “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
A beautiful black lady who was living at Skid Row a long time ago – today while I was preaching I saw her passing by with the sweetest smile and dressed well. We exchanged eye contact and smiles to say hi to each other. She is a lead choir singer in a church close by. I was so happy to witness God’s transforming work in her, and in us. After the service, brother Chuy Lira told me the lady left something to our church – 5 twenty dollar bills. $100 (worth more than million)! It’s not about the amount. It’s her love for God.
God touches people’s hearts. More people have been asking to volunteer. We were strangers, now we’re friends. Jesus’ light shines through each one of us; we sweat, we work hard, we laugh louder with a joyful heart.
Philippians 4:4 (ESV): “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.”
