Love In Action on the move
The past 13 years has been a great adventure as God has continuously molded and shaped Love In Action into the ministry He wants us to be. For the past two years, God called us into a season of ministering to a community in downtown Dothan that needed to know God still loves them. It's a section of the inner city where no one was reaching out to the people. LIA is not a church, but for the past two years we've had to fill the void of a church in this community, and we have seen God do great things at our building at 320 N. Foster. Nearly nine months ago, The Harbor Church started meeting in our ministry center. Pastor Dwight Deal and their members have a heart to reach that very community. We have been turning some ministries over to them, so they can further connect with the people. First, it was the Friday night coffee house, and then the Saturday Adopt-A-Block outreach. Two weeks ago we signed a contract to sell our ministry center at 320 N. Foster to The Harbor Church. We are aiming for July 1 as the closing date. We are very excited about this, because now the community will have a loving church to minister to their needs and we can get back to where our heart is truly at, and that's outreach.
We will now be able to focus on our building at 279 W. Main St. in downtown Dothan that we purchased a year ago. Through this 7,000 square feet of buildings, and nearly 1 acre of land, a lot of great ministry and outreach will take place, and already does. This is where the Samaritan Clinic is located. Every Thursday night our volunteer medical staff treats the homeless, women from House of Ruth and inmates from Houston County Community Corrections Work Release for basic health care, dental, eye and podiatry.
This is also where we will have transitional housing for the homeless. We will have a discipleship program that will keep them in the Word of God, because following Jesus is the key. Through the transition program we will also teach them life skills and work them to obtain a job. From there we will teach them how to budget their money. By the time they finish, they will have money for a down payment for their own apartment or house, deposit for utilities and money saved to give them a head start as they re-enter society living for Jesus Christ. We are really excited about the transitional housing. This will be an answer to a long-time prayer. We have worked with the homeless for 13 years, and to know we will be providing transitional housing for them in the near future is exciting.

Did you know 30,000
children die every day due to malnutrition and preventable diseases?
That's hard to believe, because it isn't constantly in our faces here
in the US like it is in Third World nations. Last week we received a
heartbreaking report from the Philippines as the baby of one of our
pastors died. The baby was born in November with a deformity. It was
their second child who was born with a severe medical problem and the
second one to die. The reason both times for the deformities and deaths
were due to the mother being malnourished. We know these precious indigenous
pastors and missionaries in the Philippines. We love them, and it crushes
us to hear and see this happen. One way Love In Action helps in the
Philippines is supporting our Filipino pastors and missionaries with
$100 a month. That small amount of money will feed a family of five
for a month, and it works. Unfortunately, we were not able to support
our pastor friend whose child died. Can you sponsor one of our pastors
for just a $100 a month? Can your small group or church? If you can't
give $100 a month, can you give $50 or $25? We can combine support to
take care of these precious people. Through them, we are reaching people
who have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
You can give by sending checks to: Love In Action, PO Box 85, Dothan, AL 36302. You can also give online through PayPal by clicking here and then clicking on the "Make a Donation" button.

In need of more Bibles
Imagine not having a Bible, and not having any way to get one. That's how it is for our Christian brothers and sisters in the Philippines. We have shipped thousands of Bibles to the Philippines, and we need to continue sending them. If you have any King James Version Bibles you can donate, please do. Or, you can find good deals on KJV Bibles at websites like biblicadirect.com, christianbook.com, or if you live in Dothan, Ala., you can purchase KJV Bibles at Lifeway Christian Bookstore and tell them they are for Love In Action, and they will box them for us and let us know Bibles are waiting for us to pick up. If you order online, you can have them shipped to: Love In Action International Ministries, 279 W. Main St., Ste. 2, Dothan, AL 36301. We need KJV Bibles only, and if you can donate large or giant print KJV Bibles that would be even better.
For more information, please call us at 334-494-4995 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
