I am the true bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will not die, but will live forever. - John 6:58
Does Project 658 make a difference?
As long as people in our community struggle to find simple solutions to their daily lives. As long as they need clothes to wear, food to eat, medicine to stay healthy, and skills to find work. As long as they feel lost, nameless and voiceless in a new country that is not their own. As long as they limp through the streets of our city broken by family strife, enslaved to drugs, alcohol, and sex, wondering if God has abandoned them… Project 658 will keep showing up. Shining forth God’s grace, His hope, His love and His truth.
We will place ourselves right in the middle of the chaos. Right in the middle of their world. With the hope that one day our friends will have a meaningful confrontation with the God of the universe. Because every time a Project 658 staff or volunteer shows up, two worlds collide. Light collides with darkness, joy collides with sadness, and life collides with death.
That is the privilege we have at Project 658. Knowing that people are lonely and hurting, and that like Jesus, we can learn their names, meet their needs, and become their friends. We believe in restoring hope to the hopeless. And we keep showing up in the lives of refugees in our community because we believe that Project 658 makes a difference.
