We are looking for missionaries to live and serve with us!

Who We Are Looking For

We are in the midst of a season of change. We have folks leaving the community, and we also have had shifts in our housing arrangements. At this time we have room for self supported missionaries who are interested in serving with us for six months or one year. We are looking for strong, committed believers who view themselves as missionaries, and are serious about serving in the inner city. We have room for both single adults, and for two married couples.

Who We Are

We are a Christ-centered community serving in San Diego’s inner city. For over 19 years our goal has been to meet the physical needs of those in our neighborhood, and to build meaningful and lasting relationships that point our neighbors to Christ. Our heart is not to simply preach the gospel with words, but to emulate Jesus’ way of life by loving the least of these. Our belief is that God’s heart is for the poor, and that we can be His hands and feet by helping the most needy.

What We Do

For us, living in community means sharing the most mundane moments of life and the extraordinary ones. We live and work together, and our commitment to each other has to be as strong as our commitment to those we serve. We eat together five days a week, and share our work load. Our community also houses individuals who are in need of much support and care, whether they face mental health issues, drug/alcohol addiction or physical sickness. Our six-day work week is full of food pick-ups and distributions, grocery deliveries, times of prayer and worship, working with neighborhood kids, visiting with our friends on the street, Bible studies, cleaning our property, distributing hygiene and clothing items, and much more. Some days can be very busy and some can have us working until the late evening, however our goal is to find a balance between scheduled times of work and service and leaving room for the Holy Spirit and His prompting, as we often meet people who need immediate assistance.

“Today is the best day of my life”

Tuesday night we rejoiced with Ricky, from the Recuperative Care House. He said he wanted to give his life to Christ and be baptized.

And according to Ricky “Today is the best day of my life”

We ask for prayer for Ricky as he has Stage 4 Lung cancer and is undergoing treatment.

“…no one who runs to Him loses out.” Psalm 34:22

On Monday afternoons we give food away at an apartment building a few blocks from our community.
We have been blessed to be touching the folks there for a long while. We used to deliver groceries to several of them, but the Lord opened the door for us to have a weekly food distribution in the courtyard. We have built a great relationship with the manager, and many of the kids who live in the building attend our weekly Kids’ Club.

Crayons, pizza, love, and lots of little ones….

Another summer, getting ready for about 40 kids to come for the month of July… Time to get new crayons(the old ones are small and worn), saving lots of cereal boxes, planning crafts, songs, games….

Every year we offer Kid’s Camp free of charge for their families… We serve them breakfast, lunch, and 2 snacks Monday through Friday along with crafts, games, sports, art, scripture, coloring, playing, and so much more… We have a great team of volunteers who make it happen, and who love on the kids and take care of them.

If anyone would like to help sponsor an activity, a craft, or a meal…. For example, you could sponsor a Pizza Party, which would be about 15 pizzas or so, for $75…. Or someone could buy a couple brand new boxes of crayons…. Or $40 for the supplies for a really great craft….. Or you could help us stock up on a bunch of water balloons… Or a big trip to the movies :)

If you’re interested in sponsoring, please contact Heather Wilson at dhrljwilson@cox.net

Thank you so much!

And thank you to all those who have already volunteered and those who have given to our Kid’s Camps,….. you have truly blessed these kids!!

Starting Recuperative Care

Since August of last year we have been working with UCSD Medical Center to become a Recuperative Care site. We will be housing Homeless men who have had surgery and need a place to recuperate and not be on the street, which causes them to end up back in the hospital. They will be with us from 2 weeks to 3 months, giving us opportunity to minister and care for them, build relationships and help connect them with permanent housing. We were approved on Friday and have recently done assessments of two patients. One is now living here with us.

We want to continue to care for those who are in need…

Please keep us in your prayers as we move forward following God’s leading.
