A Church for the Homeless--- Really???

Dear SoupFriends,

Greeting from the SoupMan!

A Church for the Homeless! I can see you scratching your head and saying ‘What’s that all about SoupMan?’ What crazy idea is the SoupMobile chasing now? Well I’m glad you asked. In case you haven’t heard, the SoupMobile is building a church for the homeless in South Dallas. Oh yeah, you heard right! We are putting up a real live church building. It’s the real deal. 

At SoupMobile Church the homeless will receive the call to Christ every week from SoupMobile Pastor—Sister Lisa.  Additionally the church will provide counseling, job training, life skills training
and lots of wholesome activities like barbecues and picnics.

SoupMobile Church will be a one of a kind in the entire nation. A church where the homeless will be the ‘Members’ and if we attend we will be their ‘Guests’. A revolutionary concept to be sure but as one of our supporters said, “Why hasn’t somebody thought of this before.”

Some people think we’re crazy to build a church for the homeless.  They are thinking, what does a Church have to do with ‘Feeding the Homeless.’  We think it has a lot to do with it. For more than a decade the SoupMobile has fed the bodies of the homeless with hearty and healthy food but even more importantly SoupMobile Church will feed their souls. 

Regarding that 'thinking we are crazy' idea?  Yep, we are totally, completely, absolutely, entirely, fully, unconditionally, thoroughly, unmitigatedly and wholeheartedly ‘crazy’ about Christ!

May the Lord Bless & Keep You & Yours!
