When people are ignored, their self esteem becomes lower and lower until, over time, they believe they have no value and accept that living on the streets is as good as it gets. Love In Action shows the homeless there is a God in Heaven who loves them and there are people who care about them. When they experience that love, a spark of hope shines in their eyes, and that's the beginning of their new journey back to a productive life with Jesus Christ.
When Team LIA shows the homeless love and compassion by simply sitting down to listen to them and talking with them, the homeless realize they do matter. They discover, sometimes for the first time in their lives, someone really does care about them. They see, hear and experience the love of Jesus Christ in action. We have seen many of the homeless come off the streets in Dothan and other cities in the U.S., who are now living productive lives and still worshiping and serving Jesus.
