"Transforming Lives"


2ND QUARTER 2017



18TH ANNIVERSARY OF EDEN OUTREACH


In March, we celebrated Eden Outreach's 18th Anniversary. Wow!!! We've come a long way from when we started.  God certainly has been faithful.  We've had the distinct honor and privilege to have helped hundreds and hundreds of people in need that have come thru the doors of Eden Outreach over the years.  God has strategically raised us up to help bring awareness to the plight of the homeless and those that have been disenfranchised. We look forward to helping many more people in need in the years ahead.  God truly has done "exceeding abundantly above all that we could ask or think."



HAPPY EASTER


The Lord is risen indeed (Luke 24:34)!!!  Easter gives us yet another reason to express our gratitude to God.  Let us all together praise and worship God for His countless blessings. From all of us here at Eden Outreach, have a very blessed Easter.



THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS


A recent study found that faith-based organizations are the ones that are making the most impact in the fight against homelessness. Their effectiveness comes from addressing the "whole person." Faith-based organizations provide almost two-thirds of the emergency shelter beds in ten major metropolitan cities across America. For every one dollar in government spending, tax payers save around $10, a total of about $120 million in these same cities surveyed as a result of the important work done by faith-based groups.

Giving the homeless some food and money is not going to solve the long-term issue of homelessness.  Ultimately,  people need direction and a relationship with Jesus Christ who brings healing and restoration.



DID YOU KNOW?


More than 3,500 people are currently homeless in the Dallas area alone.



CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

Sean M. went through the Eden Outreach Recovery Program and completed the two-year Young Adult Transitional Recovery Program living in the facility.


Sean is completely free from any addictive substance. He graduated from the program and now lives with his family. Reintegrating back to society, reuniting with family, and becoming a part of the adult workforce is a great attainment and our expectation for our clients.


Sean is currently taking prerequisites at a county community college. Sean owns a car and drives himself to fulfill daily commitments. It is amazing. Bravo Sean!




BE HOPEFUL IN TRIALS

 
Psalms 71:14 But I will hope continually and will yet praise thee more and more.
 
This is the best way to handle every trying situation and all issues in life.  Let’s place our hope in God continually, leaving everything in his hand and laying it down at his feet. 
 
We know that no situation we are in is outside Christ’s sphere since He upheld all things. In the physical and spiritual realms, and all power and authority is given to Him. What then do we do as we wait in hope; let’s fix our eyes on him, focusing on His person.



PRAYER NEEDS


Prayer is the lifeblood of this ministry.  Please continue to keep the following needs in prayer:


--- 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.
