Agape Fish Fund partners with local churches and volunteers to provide meals, supplies, and Christian support for the homeless in San Jose, California.
New Semester Planning
On Saturday, February 24, 2018, our homeless ministry had its first meeting for the semester. We did not do any outreach because we wanted to go over goals and plans for this semester. Also, I wanted to go over the rules and provide an introductory meeting for newcomers. We had 9 volunteers show up. During the meeting we enjoyed fellowship over some Chinese egg rolls and got to know more about each other. This semester we have 8 returning volunteers and 6 new ones.
Christ's Love Compels Us
My goals for this semester are to get our volunteers to grow closer together and to build a bond beyond the homeless outreach. God has put it on my heart to put love as our goal, loving the people we serve, and also the people we serve with.
I explained to the volunteers about how we love Christ because He first loves us, and that Christ’s love compels us. I wanted to explain to the volunteers that it’s not about the items we hand out, or what we say, but it's about if the people see genuine love from us, and that if we consistently go out there and remember each one of them by name.
