Help for the Homeless


Every Saturday night we feed the homeless in Gifu City. We usually give a rich hot bowl of noodles or a homemade obento (boxed meal) and bananas. We also give motivational publications and pray for each of the 15 or 20 people we feed.

One fellow commented recently, “Since you have been coming and praying for us, good things have been happening.” This man had received medical treatment for a longstanding ailment, another homeless man’s family had had a change of heart and taken him back into their home, and a third man set up a lending library of all the inspirational and faith-building publications we have given them, which they are all benefiting from.
