- Valentine's Day make overs - Barbers and makeup artists donated their time to give some of our guests at the Marketplace a makeover for Valentine's Day. It was BEAUTIFUL!.
- Street Squads is a team of volunteers that heads out every Saturday morning to sweep or shovel snow or chisel away the ice for residents living near The Legacy Center. Some of the people we serve on Friday's at the Marketplace saw us on the streets and couldn't believe we were out there!
- Red Eye Runs are the evening runs we make with a team of volunteers. We have been going out in literally subzero weather to give out clothes, toiletries, and blankets to individuals sleeping on the streets or under ground. We met a few people I have to tell you about!
We also met Joseph, who was wearing just a shirt and a pair of jeans as he slept on the floor in the Port Authority station. When we offered him a blanket, he jumped up and said "There is a God!". He explained how he had been begging God for something warm. We got to witness the expression on Joseph's face as we pulled out that blanket. Priceless!

On Wednesday, February 18th, we had a FANTASTIC turnout of baptism candidates for our service.
The candidates ranged from young to old, with different testimonies and reasons for making a commitment to God. We thank all who came to be baptized, and all who came to support them!
