Movement at Love Beyond Walls

This past week was exceptional! Firstly, we have welcomed our first part-time staff member (Carlee Crawford). She will serve as the new admin for #lovebeyondwalls, and will aid us in organizational stuff.

Additionally, we finished our first commissioned bed (piece of art) and delivered it to one of our followers! Below are a few pictures of the bed being constructed, and the finished product.

Over 300 – Mobile Makeovers!

Yesterday, we got a chance to make it well over 300 makeovers! We had a young barber named Brittney come and volunteer her services to provide makeovers on the spot in Clayton County.

We met so many wonderful people while out serving! One man named JC was so gracious and encouraging… His words were very touching as he talked and shared his gratitude about life… He sat in the barber’s chair and talked about how God was taking care of him through those that served (in the midst of his hard times).

No. He wasn’t implying that he was a dependent person…

He was simply saying “even when I do not have anything, God finds a way to meet my needs…I couldn’t make it to church but the church came to me…”

He asked us to snap his before and after picture and share it with people to let folks know that he is a human being (although homeless), and he is grateful for those who give their time to uplift those who are oppressed and forgotten. After meeting JC, we connected him to further resources. Below are his pictures!

It was an amazing opportunity, and we cannot wait to get started with furthering our Mobile Makeovers project!

Surpassing our goal

Yesterday, we reached a goal that many thought was impossible! We hit our annual goal and made over 275 people in less than four months with the Mobile Makeovers bus!

After two and a half months of laboring to get the bus ready, the bus hit the road in May and has been giving people dignity since that historical month!

Today, we will begin to blow this goal out of the water by making more people over and connecting people to resources that will help them become self-sufficient!

Below is a picture of our 275th makeover! Thank you if you gave to this project!
