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

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the incredible opportunity to go to The Jonah Project! You want to talk about people who step outside of the box, outside of any comfort zone....These people are the REAL thing! I left a part of my heart at the Jonah Project and the people of Skid Row. This is not a place for the faint of heart! It is a place for warriors who go out and love and empathize with the broken and down trodden. JP is one of the most awesome ministries around...... Providing opportunities for people to put their gifts into ACTION! When we arrived, everyone was asked "What are your gifts? We have a place for you!" JP offered people with the gift of arts/music to lead music and worship for the evening. They offered a group for evangelism to go out on the streets to evangelize. Another group went out, walked the steets and prayed against the spiritual oppression, addictions, prostitution...and so on. They provided a group for people who have the gift of organization to go in the closet and organize all the clothes that are donated! Others were cooking and serving the people. You name it...there was a place for you!! I personally went with a group that prayed! It was phenominal...I personally have never felt oppression so strongly as I did there, but what is more awesome, there was no fear to go out and minister because I have a greater power on my side, living in me. The people living on Skid Row need people to go out and love on them!!!!! Thank you Jonah Project for letting me be apart of the ministry on Skid Row...I love you all!! :o)

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

Being a part of this ministry had many results!! But what result I loved the most was.... a hug and a smile from someone who was hurting and they just wanted to be loved! AWESOME.... AWESOME..... AWESOME

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

Was not there long enough to see any changes that needed made. They are doing a great job! What they need is: Money! You have to have money to run the ministry.

Role:  Volunteer & Love and encourage the people who live on Skid Row.
