LET US NOT
LOVE WITH WORDS...
CARE FOR THE LEAST OF THESE...
"To do what it tells us in Matthew 25:40 – care for the least of these – feed, clothe, care…that’s our purpose here at LOT."
"LOT 2540 is just a great place to learn about Jesus. It’s not theological. It’s learning to love God and to love people. It’s a great place to put that in action."
"LOT means everything to me. I am able to serve and be in the community. I see people who are hurt and don’t want to go into a church. It’s great knowing that they have somewhere to go. We are being Jesus in the street."
"LOT is a way to serve, to be personally involved in the Lord’s work. The staff and volunteers are missionaries in the mission field."
"I have been supported all my life by wonderful people. My heart longed to work in my own community. Now I can give back. It’s a dream come true. This is a work entrusted to us by the Lord."
AN OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE OUT WHAT GOD'S PURPOSE FOR ME...
"LOT is an opportunity to live out what God’s purpose for me is. It’s a place where people can come and be the church. A place of hope! A living, thriving community where people are loved with God’s love. We use His mercy and His grace to do the work."
WE LOVE GOD...
"We love God, and we love our neighbor."
OUT OF THE CYCLE OF POVERTY...
"LOT gives people a chance to get out of the cycle of poverty.
TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN...
"To whom much is given, much is required. You don’t know who you are going to bless with your gift. Your one donation could be what turns their heart to God."
"At LOT, we believe in lovin’ all over people! We want to see lives restored."
"LOT is a David & Goliath story..."
