1ST QUARTER 2017



THE BEST IS YET TO COME


Happy New Year 2017 !!!  Thou crownest the year with thy goodness (Psalm 65:11).  God has great things in store for you and this ministry in this brand new year.

A very special heartfelt thank you to each of you that helped us make 2016 a life-changing year for all the men and women in need who came thru the doors of Eden Outreach.  You made the difference, and we couldn't have done it without you.

We truly believe that 2017 is going to be our best year yet. We continue to move forward and believe that our best days are ahead of us. We have helped many people over the years, but there is still much work to be done.  God will enable us to carry out all He has called us to do.  He is faithful indeed.

The need is great.  In 2016, there were more than 3000 homeless people in the Dallas area alone.  The homeless population in this area rose about 25% from the previous year.   The numbers are staggering nationally with more than 500,000 people homeless across the United States.

There are still many more lives to impact, and we continue to provide supportive recovery services to help each person reach their God-designed destiny.  They may have been temporarily setback by drugs, alcohol, and other life-controlling issues, but they can and will reach their destiny ultimately with God's help.  If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed (John 8:36).

God has miraculously sustained and provided for Eden Outreach for the past 17 years.  We stand in awe of all that He has done thus far, and yes, the best is yet to come !!!

This coming March, Eden Outreach will celebrate 18 years of excellence.


CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

My name is Terry, and I spent most of my young adult life in prison. I successfully completed my educational training recently in Welding 1-B with CitySquare Build 4-Success in collaboration with North Lake College in Irving, Texas.


At the present, I am participating in Eden Outreach's Transitional Living Program to regain stability and independence as I reintegrate back to the community.




KEEP YOUR EYES FIXED ON JESUS



When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone but the righteous stand firm forever (Proverbs 10:25).

The sky cannot make up for life changing clouds, at times shadowing, refreshingly and at other times, a bright light.  There is always a rainbow in the clouds. Child of God, remember that clouds are always moving so do not despair over the troubles in your life.  The trials weighing you down  today will soon pass by.  Stay strong and don’t give up.  His gracious and loving hand will uphold you.  Remember He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Today, look up and be encouraged. You are God’s forever.  You can trust in him today!  Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus regardless of your circumstances.

Prayer: Father God, help me to look down from my exalted position in the heavenly places with Christ.  Renew my strength this day,  and let the glorious bright light of Christ’s face shine upon me.  Lord, strengthen my heart and soul until God’s winds blow the dark clouds away. In Jesus Name, Amen!



PRAYER NEEDS



Prayer is the lifeblood of this ministry.  As we enter this new year, we earnestly need your prayers for the following:

--- Praise God for His provision for Eden Outreach’s needs through our faithful donors and volunteers     
                                                                                  
--- Pray that we will stay in the center of God’s will with all the care and services provided

--- Pray for the Eden Outreach's leadership, staff, Board of Directors, and volunteers for wisdom and direction

--- Pray that all the men and women who come to us may experience God’s abundant peace, joy, and love to meet their spiritual needs as well as their physical challenges

--- Praise God for the transformed lives of all the men and women that are going through Eden Outreach, and who have graduated from our recovery programs, and for His protection over them as they move forward

--- Pray for the city of Dallas that God will give its leaders wisdom and transform lives throughout the region



HOW CAN WE PRAY FOR YOU?



If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven (Matthew 18:19).


If you have any prayer requests, we will be happy to join with you and intercede for your specific needs.   Jesus Christ is the answer to our needs, and together we will believe God for a supernatural breakthrough or miracle. 

Please email your prayer requests to:
