Lent Season & Kingdom
The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer for Easter through prayer, doing penance, mortifying the flesh, repentance of sins, almsgiving, and denial of ego.
Lent is a great time to connect with God. The more we can put our flesh and selves aside , the more we are in tuned to hearing the voice of God. Lent doesn't make God speak, it clears out the muck that is distorting the voice of God.
As Kingdom ambassadors we should be checking into the Kingdom government often , and if we are not finding or putting aside the time to listen, worship and pray we begin to not look like the Kingdom we represent. We then begin to put on the culture's image instead of portraying the image or logo of Christ's Kingdom.

Love and Dignity since 2003
Laundry Love is a neighboring movement that partners with groups, schools and local laundromats to wash the clothes and bedding of low-income and/or no-income families and individuals.
The Laundry Love initiative consists of regular opportunities to come alongside people who are struggling financially by assisting them with their laundry. Laundry Love partners with local laundromats in cleaning clothes and linens of low-income or no-income families and individuals. We see the laundromat as a place where strangers become friends, people are known by name, hope is hustled, and the worth of every human being is acknowledged and celebrated.
Laundry Love washes the clothes and bedding of low/no income families and person(s) across the US. We brighten the lives of thousands of people through love, dignity, and detergent by partnering with diverse groups and laundromats nationwide.
"Millions of low-income struggling families and individuals"
The story of Laundry Love began with T-Bone (Eric),(Co-Founder)
A houseless gentleman living in Ventura Calif. In one particular conversation, a question was asked of him: “How can we come alongside your life in a meaningful way?” His response was honest and practical. “If I had clean clothes I think people would treat me like a human being.”
