Our good friend Aldo Alvarez joined us for his first ever prayer station outreach this month! When we met Aldo at the Flushing Prayer Station last fall, he was not walking with God but he was inquiring of us about spiritual matters. Since that time he has come to know the Lord and now he's passionate about studying his Bible and sharing the Gospel. Though nervous, Aldo was zealous on the street as he approached the people walking by. He said, "This is amazing! I feel like one of the first Apostles... This must have been what it was like for the early church going out and sharing the Gospel with the people in Athens and Ephesus." This experience only fueled Aldo's fire and passion for Jesus and he intends to join us for more outreaches in the future. We have been so blessed to watch Aldo grow in the Lord. He met us on the streets, got right with God, and now he's going back out on the streets sharing God with others!

My name is Gabriella and I’m from Brazil. I have been in full time missions with YWAM in Brazil for three years. About two years ago, God spoke to me about coming to Street LIFE Ministries. However, it was only at the end of last year that He told me that it was now time to serve in New York City, to learn a new culture, a new language, and to do it with this ministry.
It has been an incredible time here so far. Serving people in the streets is helping me to understand more about the grace and the love the Father has for everyone. It is a very different experience for me and is very challenging. I am growing in my relationship with God and in my trust in Him. I am so thankful and happy to be here. No matter how difficult it will be to learn a new language, to obey and walk out what God told me to do strengthens and helps me to keep moving forward until all hear the Good News.
