Out with the old…in with the new!

Our time in DC with Operation Silent Night on the dark streets with the homeless was an incredible time as God continued to pour out His blessings on every person He sent our way! We fed over 300 this year while we had to turn many away. Next year we anticipate feeding 500!!!

We’ve grown and our needs are great for this outreach where we need to find a warehouse to store our donated items and to be sufficiently organized!!
So very much to do and so little space that we pray for adequate storage and working space.
With this year’s Operation Silent Night behind us we now look to the future with WaterBrooks preparation to physically build the Sanctuary for Prayer. The project is a huge undertaking with dynamiting the rock ledge to put in the road up into the hills and preparing to build the commercial septic system at the top where the vision is to put the main lodge building with a view out over the valley, we so ask your prayers for this project!! We will be sharing more information about this soon.
As the final minutes tick down towards the New Year you still have time in this year end to help make these dreams become realities. You have the opportunity to immediately send us your 2019 year end gift of love. For your donation we will send you a special thank you with our first ever 2020 WaterBrooks Calendar that holds pictures of the Cross of WaterBrooks along with a scripture for each month to turn your thoughts towards prayer.

IMG-20191228-WA0014Volunteer James, from Costa Rica, really connected with this man in a wheelchair on Christmas Eve. The yellow straps hanging on the back of the chair show the packed duffel bag that we pass out. The bag is packed with several pair of new socks, a hat and muffler, hygiene kit, snack bag, roll of toilet tissue, (a basic commodity that we often take for granted) small LED flashlight, an umbrella, bottled water, and a can of Pepsi! The throw blanket on his lap was one of several hundred that were donated brand new. And it appears that he is really enjoying that cup of hot cocoa!

Devotional Thoughts By Sue Thomas

Sue Thomas Ministries View All →

We seek to be a vessel, an outpouring of God’s love, to bring the good news to the afflicted, to bind up the broken hearted, to set the captive free, to comfort those who mourn, and to bring the oil of gladness and the mantle of praise to all that we meet and serve.

We undertake our mission through our outreach of ministering to the spirit, mind, and body, whether it be in renewal through silent retreat and prayer at WaterBrooks, through encouraging those with deafness and other physical challenges at Kennels of Levi, or through meeting the needs of our brothers and sisters among the homeless with Operation Silent Night.

We strive to fulfill our mission, not through our own might and power, but by resting on the firm guiding hand of faith in God’s providence, provisions and promises…for what He has started, He will so complete.
