Gales Hope Bags for the Homeless

It has been the vision of our Pastor (Bishop Michael Pitts) and the Cornerstone Global Network to be a church that "Promotes the Good". As Gale and I have traveled this country this last year, we have been looking for ways to do just that.
We were in Arizona last year in February, and we were invited to do an outreach in the city park for the homeless. Afterwards Pastor Atticus Register from Shiloh Christian Center in Sierra Vista, wanted to show us just how bad the homeless situation had become. He drove us through the desert and down in the washes. Between the mesquite trees, there were homeless people that had built a small city of tents hidden away from everyones view. It was here, that something rose up on the inside of Gale to do something about it.
It's amazing that once your eyes are open to the real issues, then those issues can be seen everywhere. That was the case for us. Everywhere we went, we saw homeless. Once in Montana on a cold night we met a man laying on the ground outside of a flying J truck stop. We went to multiple homeless shelters all over the country and learned about how we could help. In Yuma Arizona we did a concert and saw over 50 people come up for prayer. It seemed like every city we would go, God would show us people that just needed to be loved on and ministered to. We began to save up extra soaps and shampoos from hotels we stayed in every night. We took the extra food that pastors put in our welcome baskets and we would give them to people on the street.
We are willing and ready to go to the next level with Gales passion! We have decided to really step up and make it part of our purpose. This next year, above and beyond our normal ministry and concerts, we plan on helping to make a real difference in three ways. They are as follows;

#1. We will personally begin to fill and distribute "Hope Bags" everywhere we go. These one gallon zip lock bags will contain just basic necessities like Water, clean socks, granola bars, soaps, lotion and multiple other items that will give someone an opportunity to believe that someone still cares. The most important thing about these "Hope Bags" is not whats in them but rather who's giving them. It's our heart to have these bags be a point of contact to help us build a relationship with these people and it gives us an opportunity to pray for them and believe with them for super natural healing and revelation of who Jesus is.

#2. We will offer to every church that we minister with to partner with us and possibly do outreaches in their cities. Our plan is to provide music, food and to hand out our "Hope Bags" to every person we can possibly reach.

#3. We will try to connect with homeless shelters all over the country to offer free concerts for their people. We will serve the shelters and their vision.

We need your help! Although it won't be a huge budget, it will take more funds than we are able to provide on our current budget. We are believing for monthly partners that will stand with us and commit to help us do good and reach more people. Anything helps! Our desire is to have in our vehicle with us at all times up to 40 filled "Hope Bags". Our goal is to do this with great excellence. If you're not a fan of online donations then please reach out to us and get our address. We are a 501C3 Non-Profit organization and can provide you with a tax receipt. Please consider partnering with us today to send us out ministering life to more people more effectively!


Love y'all
