Life is filled with paradox. If you need encouragement… give encouragement (Proverbs 11:25). Check out this story how giving generously of one’s time produces encouragement and friendship. Once a month on Monday morning they meet at a rallying point in their cozy neighborhood and drive 60 miles to downtown Los Angeles – skid row to be more precise.

“Those who tell the stories rule society.” - Plato Jesus knew the Power of Story. When He taught He drew from Stories. The Gospel writers learned from Jesus the Power of Story.

They have been very successful using stories to influence and entertain audiences. Deed and Truth is tapping into this rich resource of stories. We are sponsoring a Video Library to use the art of cinema to tell powerful, life-transforming stories to be used in classes and to create a forum to develop community in the family common areas
