Dear Friends,                                                                                             

We must do everything we can to reopen the 1411 Locust building.  That is why your faithful support is so important at this time when New Life is launching a $35,000 Raise the Roof Campaign.

Thank you for all you have done in the past to help so many hurting and homeless people through your faithful support to the New Life Evangelistic Center.  Because of your love and generosity, hundreds of homeless people are being directly helped each day throughout Mid America.

Yet even with all that we have done together so many of God’s precious homeless children continue to remain on the streets.  That is why we must continue to work to reopen 1411 Locust.

Reopening 1411 Locust is much more than just using a building.  It involves pursuing the vision of continuing the last major walk-in shelter in Mid America, that is available to the homeless in their time of need. 

Even though New Life continues to provide a wide range of services to the homeless including the provision of food, shelter and an assortment of training programs, enough cannot be said about the need for having one central location where the homeless can come day or night for assistance.  The facility at 1411 Locust, for over 40 years has met that need.

We must continue to do everything we can to reopen that historical building.

Your help is needed now to partner with New Life Evangelistic Center to complete the replacement of the roof, which is over the worship sanctuary at 1411 Locust.

As you give please also pray for a miracle August 1st.  On that day at 9:30 am, New Life Evangelistic Center will be able to present its case before a judicial body that has not been appointed by the Mayor of the City of St. Louis. 

NLEC will present a strong case that day concerning religious freedom and the discrimination of a congregation of people just because they are homeless.  Our attorneys will be able to show the Missouri Court of Appeals how according to the Constitution neighbors should not be allowed to determine how a church like New Life practices its religion when it comes to the provision of shelter.

During the past 46 years, we have seen God perform countless miracles through the work of New Life Evangelistic Center.  Now you are invited to put your money where the miracles are, by helping NLEC Raise the Roof at 1411 Locust.  Please send your tax deductible gift now to New Life Evangelistic Center at PO Box 473, St. Louis, MO  63166.

Your gift of $100, $50, $250, $500, $1,000 or whatever you are able to give will help NLEC Raise the Roof and get 1411 Locust reopened for the homeless.  Click here to give a gift today!

In behalf of God’s precious homeless men, women and children, I want to thank you for caring and sharing at this hour of great need.

 

 

 

 

P.S.    Please don’t forget to pray for NLEC as its case goes before the Missouri Court of Appeals August 1.  Also, please pray as to what God would have you share in order that the roof over the worship center at 1411 Locust will be replaced.
