flood’s first project of the school year proved to be another AMAZING opportunity for new students to see God in action. Students from Legacy Academy (one of our chapters in development), Milton HS, and a small group from North Point Community Church, were all able to go on the streets and outreach to the homeless for the very first time. Caitlin Fogerty, Alex Scales, and Victoria Yang led students to our favorite park downtown as we passed out snacks and hung out with our homeless friends. STREET REACH has been one of flood’s favorite projects since we began it about 2 years ago. Going downtown once or twice a month has given students the opportunity to connect and build relationships with many of the homeless men and women living on the streets of ATL.
Listen to what Andrew Matthews had to say about his experience, “Hey flood I just served with y’all and I have to admit I was the nervous kid who was about to throw up, but once I got there and they treated me like they have known me their whole life I got so comfortable with them, and that was a life changing experience. I literally had chills the whole time seeing what God is doing. I only talked to three guys and played chess with them but I really got to know these guys and they were the coolest people I have ever seen. Thank u sooo much for that experience. I want to be in this for the rest of my time in high school. Thanks again. Andrew.”
