MY FATHER'S HOUSE BUFFALO OUTREACH TO THE HOMELESS
On the last Thursday of every month. Marcy Berry Waskow, Pastor Donna Elaine Naedle, Cindy Zeis and a host of others walk away from the comfort of home and family, to go and be the comfort of family to folks they don't even know. The Buffalo Outreach for the Homeless is sponsored by My Father's House Ministries in Elma, NY. Their church is in a rural setting about 20 miles outside of Buffalo. Twenty miles may not seem like much, but you won't find folks sleeping under bridges in Elma. There may be some homeless, but not like the streets of Buffalo.
In downtown Buffalo at the Bus Station they set up their headquarters of mercy and grace. Because of their commitment and consistency, many folks look forward to their arrival once a month. Pizza is served in mass quantities when available. Sometimes their other foods including sandwiches, drinks and snacks. Clothing in Buffalo is very valuable especially in the winter where temperatures can go below zero. Can you imagine sleeping on a thin layer of cardboard on concrete under a bridge when the temperatures are below zero and the wind chill makes it unbearable?
They provide many of the necessities of life, but the most important thing they do is act like Christ. They treat people with love and respect. They pray for people and lives are changed.
There are several ways you can help. You could go with them on the last Thursday of the month. You can donate supplies for toiletries, clothing and food or a couple of bucks to purchase those items. They don't make any money, these are volunteer soldiers, ask them what they need on the front lines of servanthood.
These people go where most folks cannot or will not go;
to serve a bunch of down-and-outers and help them
feel worthy of becoming up-and-comers in the love of Christ.

For every soldier called to active duty must divorce himself from the distractions of this world
so that he may fully satisfy the one who chose him."
