During April 5-13, over 120 people from the Carolinas joined together and flew out to Los Angeles, California, to see a move of God. And it has come! We erected our Jesus Tent on the original site of the Azusa Street Revival (1906). Right off San Pedro Street, the tent was situated at the foot of skid row, one of the most dangerous and largest homeless populations in America. To pull this off, the Lord brought us amazing help through the CRI (Crisis Responses International) team. Approximately, 50 of their volunteers flew in from all over America and stayed on cots at the Union Mission and helped us set-up the tent, feed the poor, and break open the historic well of Azusa Street.
For several days worship teams and intercessors built day & night prayer and worship under the tent, and the power of God exploded! Our gathering at Azusa Street culminated on Sunday, April 10, when the city gave us permission to shut down San Pedro Street and cook food for the homeless all day. We came with an empty freezer not knowing anyone in L.A. but by April 10, churches and organizations had donated over 6,000 hotdogs and hamburgers. Setting tables in the streets, we fed over 5,000 people that day. In addition, teams from the Carolinas and east coast were outreaching in the heart of skid row and bringing them back for lunch.
In all we witnessed:
- Dozens of people were saved
- Several were water baptized
- Hundreds of physical healings occurred
- At least 5,000 people were given free food and clothes
- Dozens of homeless folks received free haircuts
Epic Stories From Skid Row:
“Before I went to Azusa I had a dream about a woman I would meet she would have a black shirt, in the dream I prayed for her and touched her arm where she shot up. In the dream, the heroin came out of her arm as I prayed. Please pray for MJ she is the one I Came for! She Prayed for deliverance of Heroin and reconciled with Jesus!” -Tami Cumbee
“So friends. This just happened. With 2 new friends help we were able to serve so many street people down here on skid row. Holly spirit came in an amazing way. People absolutely love this. Their community has its own system of rules and laws and we were welcomed with open arms. There are so many good people who after living a normal life, had one big bad event that happened to them…and they’re on the street. But they are trying to make it. One day at a time. Also, a very giving and sharing spirit is here that we all could use more of.” -Leon Vannett
“Street ministry. Praying and feeding the homeless was a life changing experience. I’ll never be the same.” #azusanow #streetministry #foreverchanged #love -Ricky Thomas
