Hungry for work
Many homeless people are ones who are being laid off. They are eager to work but there is no job for them. We cry out to some friends and churches. Some churches allowed us to do a yard sale on the church parking lot. Some gave them work. The entire earning goes to the workers. We thank God for those God-sent angels who offer them jobs! Those who are interested in having us, may call pastor Kyung Lee or Doug Jung.
We do the laundry service every Tuesday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Maytag Just Like Home Laundry, located at 6725 196th St. SW, Lynnwood. We allow a load of wash and dry for each person and provide a detergent and dryer sheet. In 2021 we have helped 671 homeless people ($4,780) to do the laundry.
We firmly believe that we are called to train and raise up spiritual leaders. In order to fulfill this calling, every summer we hold a retreat for the homeless. In the summer of 2011 - 2017, we took seven leaders from the homeless community to the Dumas Bay Center and for 3 days and 2 nights, worshipped, praised songs, prayed, studied the Bible and special guest lectures. Every year the seven people who came with us had a life-transforming experience through the retreat and are now active as leaders for the homeless.
