Heart Love Place Annual Auction for Inner City Mission
A few weeks ago, I had the honor and privlige to partner with Heart Love Place in Milwaukee as their photographer and artist for their annual Red Tie Auction.
I also brought along our "Vintage Photo Booth."
Originally, the event was to be held outside, where the "photo booth" was to be hung between trees. As the rain came pouring down, we had to find an alternative.
We had a blast!
Every time I visit, I am slayed by what God is doing there.
The leadership He has brought to this ministry is amazing.
Una, Viola and their team...women and men after God's own heart and I am certain that is a key element to why it is flourishing so much!
It truly overwhelms me to think of where this mission all started...
A man several years ago now had a dream.
He quit his high paying business job to drive around the inner city in an RV, go to families in need and offer them love, support and a place to go for other needs as well.
He invited them into this mobile home and shared God's word with them. Whether they received it in that moment did not matter to him. As long as they were listening.
Today, Heart Love Place is flourishing.
Among many things, Heart Love Place has actually created a culinary school that is preparing it's chefs to thrive in a restaurant or catering setting. It is creating jobs, offers tutoring, is developing sports ministries, bible studies, and they offer events to get kids off the streets (just to name a few).
Here are a few photos of this incredible evening.
Blessed my heart x10!
And it is because of women of Grace like this (Una and Viola) that keep this incredible mission going. Amazing women!
