I am Bjorn Bengtsson
is the name of a mission I am personally leading in the Spirit of God, Yahweh, Jesus Christ - to be an illuminating light of the beauty and truth once darkened by indifference against people experiencing homelessness. To meet practical and spiritual needs of people experiencing homelessness. And to keep young adult aged out of foster care people from experiencing homelessness.
I am raising funds for two purposes:
First, to meet the practical needs of people living on the streets of Arizona; providing necessary warm winter clothing and blankets, medical supplies (i.e. cleaning for open wounds, Narcan to prevent overdose death), water, and food. Money is not given to people experiencing homelessness. Money is used to purchase and bring necessary materials to the people. This mission into the streets of Arizona is meant to meet the people where they are and love them as they are. To be Light Love Life.
Second, to provide funds to support a program called Foster360, offering services, housing, and practical growth for young adults aging out of the foster care system in Arizona. When a foster youth is not adopted and turns 18 years old, they lose care of the foster system. Many become homeless or go to prison. Foster care aging out is a root of homelessness. Now we are equipping our youth to live well, and to stay off the streets. To be Light Love Life. Money donated here goes directly to young adults I interact with in a housing community in downtown Phoenix.
To keep this mission flowing i'll allow myself to receive no more than 1/3 of funds raised to pay for operation costs, including gas, city parking, art materials, and for myself for for the time and energy spent in mission. My main intent is to give.
I will be using my creative gifts in photography and writing to tell the stories of homeless and foster youth, bring awareness to systems needing healing in our community, and open doors for God's Light Love Life to pour in.
Stay tuned on my website BjornBengtsson.com and my Instagram @BjornBengtss and by talking with me personally.
Be open to seeing the being of God in a new Light, in new faces, in ways of life probably uncomfortable to you. Here is the Light of the Underexposed. Here we are being like Jesus.
We be like Jesus.
Prayer is helpful in this ministry. Providing funds is helpful in this ministry. Coming along, getting real in this ministry with me, can be helpful. Seeking to understand is helpful.
