Annie Armstrong – Day 7
Jacob knows the homeless, drug addicts and gang members of Sanger. He used to live among them before he went to jail and met Jesus there.
Now he and his wife, Francine, are reaching those who “would scare people who go to most churches,” Jacob said. Through Set Free Church, they take the gospel to the streets to reach the people others might see as a “lost cause.”
Church members distribute food, hot meals and hygiene supplies several times a week along with an invitation to worship and Bible study. Their acts of compassion are growing the church and changing lives. Jacob also connects addicts with Biblically based recovery centers and continues their spiritual growth through Set Free Church’s discipleship house.
All of it, Jacob said, “is God”—God gave him a heart to help those without hope “because I was there once myself.”
- For God to transform hearts in Sanger with the gospel.
- For resources to maintain and expand the discipleship house ministry.
