I feel the Jonah Project is a very worthy organization. The desire of the the workers is to show the love of God to the residents of Skid Row in Los Angeles. They help meet the physical needs of the people by providing refuge, food, clothing, etc, while meeting their spiritual needs by preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ. Their love and concern for the people of Skid Row is evident in all that they do.

The Jonah Project is one of the most unique and most loving places that I have been. They are actively blessing the people of the community they are at and are authentically in love with them. Our youth group went there for an outreach to help bless others, but it was we who were changed forever from the work that is happening there and from the staff.

The first time I heard about the Jonah Project was from a homeless man that my friends and I were talking to in early 2009. He told us, "Shh, be quiet. You hear that music? Follow it and you'll find the Jonah Project." They had only been open for a couple of months, but already had gained the reputation as the church with open doors and loud music.
I soon met pastor Patrick Ersig and his wife, Mary inside their building on Skid Row. I was deeply moved by the Ersig's passion for the poor, but even more surprised to see the reactions to them. Perhaps they are just easily recognizable, but every single homeless person knew the Ersigs, and were happy to see them.
I have visited the Jonah Project over the years, and have only seen them grow-both in numbers and in passion. They are on the front lines, doing the work that needs to be done. I wholeheartedly support them, and could not give them any higher recommendation.

We have had a relationship with this organization for the past several years. We have worked on the street with them, and observed how much they mean to the people on Skid Row. The provide the people with not only the physical necessities they lack, but they also minister to the spiritual and emotional well being of each individual, as well. Pastor Patrick and Pastor Jedid are well versed in the Scriptures and offer much needed hope and help to the people they minister to. They have developed a personal relationship with the people, who have come to love and trust them. We have seen Christ work through this ministry to make a difference in many peoples lives, and feel they are very worthy of our financial and prayer support.

I've never had the pleasure of serving with them in person, as they are in another country. However, I have no qualms about supporting this much needed ministry.

The old adage goes 'give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach him to fish and feed him for life'. This is what the Jonah project does. It not only feeds people for a seaon but tries to implement the structures and support that will allow them to feed for life, and not just physical food but spiritual food as well.

Ministry like the Jonah Project is much needed. People are homeless, in need of help and in search of something better. Many long to be free from the bondage they are in but see no way out. The Jonah project offers ways out for people, and also offers them the potential to make lasting changes which will help not only the person but those around them.

If the work they are doing was replicated in many other places around the world, with funding from private donors and other funded methods, then much good would be done among the homeless of the world.

I 100% support this ministry and what they stand for, both socially and biblically.
