Several times a month, a group from Spirit of God Fellowship heads to a neighborhood in need in Chicago. There, they fire up a grill, unload boxes of clothes, and offer the love of Christ to hundreds of people who are hungry, thirsty, and broken.
Led by Ulises and Gigi Adames, many people they speak to are experiencing homelessness, are suffering from a mental illness, or are fighting addiction. “We want to be the hands and feet of God,” says Ulises. Gigi leads worship, and Ulises brings a message of hope, salvation, healing, and restoration. People leave with their bodies and spirits fed, and usually with a few pairs of socks or other donated items to help them survive.
“What they are experiencing is not who they are,” Gigi says. “We want to show them that God’s love for them is unconditional.”
There are a few ways to help this ministry. First, hold this ministry up in prayer as they bring God’s love to those who are in need of so much. Second, we are always in need of donations. Items most desired are jackets or coats, shoes, socks, backpacks, sweaters, sweatshirts, blankets, bras, feminine products, and wipes. Clothing items do not need to be brand new, but should be in good condition.
