We arrived at the Dream Center Thursday morning and after orientation and lunch we started serving at a ministry called Under The Bridge. We went to Skid Row where most of the homeless people in Los Angeles gather to offer a meal and prayer to everybody there. 
 The Dream Center partners with the Jonah Project, a church located right in the heart of Skid Row. They opne up their facilities to everyone in the community and they allow for the Dream Center to come and serve a hot meal to hundreds of people on a weekly basis. 

We were asked to actually serve the food, Caleb had to hand it out. So we put our aprons on, our fish nets and gloves and we started serving mac and cheese, veggies and beef stroganoff while Caleb added a piece of bread and handed the people their plate.

When we got done serving we went out and talked to a few people, we had a chance to pray for them and we invited them to church. So many of them are in such a dark place in life right now, our prayer is that they will find the Light and follow it for the rest of their lives.
