Every month Deed & Truth sponsors a community-building event for the Alumni of the URM men’s ministry. Last night they had a great time at the L.A. Car Show.
None of the men have cars but for one night you can dream can’t you?! :)
The L.A. Convention Center was hosting the 2020 Car Show so I took a van full of guys to look around. There we lots of cool cars, trucks, and interactive opportunities to see, touch, and experience.
They oohed and aahed, wanted their pictures taken, and laughed with each other a lot.
We helped design a car with Seth’s skill with a marker.
Ricky and Phil found motorcycles they could handle.
We found an idea for reducing homelessness.
Phil even found the new truck he’s been wanting!
We found a tire as tall as Seth.
And this is why I don’t like to park my car outside in L.A. for too long…
They got a real kick out of some of the simulators…
Afterwards we rallied some money and got some burgers at McDonalds. It was great to see them enjoying themselves and their friendships. It’s so important for the men to spend time together doing things outside the mission. These Deed & Truth sponsored Alumni Events help them experience some level of “normalcy” in life. That’s very healthy for their continued recovery.
Thanks for supporting Deed & Truth with your prayers and financial gifts that we might continue to be effective in helping these men experiencing homelessness continue grow and learn to live in community with others.
