Review for The Jonah Project, El Segundo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I spent 6 days at the dream center and I was priveleged enough to serve the Jonah Project on a Wednesday and Friday. The first time I went I didn't wanna go out of my comfort zone, so I stayed in the building to help sort through clothes. Which were clothes the Jonah Project gave to the homeless. I regretted that decision because I saw a change in my friends who walked around to pray for people. They went to the homeless "people", I stayed and had them come to me.
My pride kept me from going. I broke that down for the second time I went. That time, I went with the prayer group. 2 major things happened by going there that changed me completely. I got to meet individuals, not the numbers in statistics of homeless. Praying for him..I think his name was "Tomas". It was incredible because as we were praying for him he broke down. His story reminded me of all the more individuals out there, all the people the Jonah Project is helping. This orginazation is truly one purely out to reach for these people.
I plan to volunteer there more often.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

praying for the homeless people and experiencing the reality of their lives.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing. All they need is more people to care and volunteer more. People are so selfish nowadays. -_____-

Role:  Volunteer & Sorted through clothes to give to homeless, walked around to pray for individuals and encourage them.
