If you got the July 26th newsletter you may have noticed that there were some changes made to the Burritos and Socks Ministry. You may have even tried to go to the website to get the details. Unfortunately, the site as down the following morning so I’ll have to give you the quick version…
San Diego Department of Environmental Health does not permit anyone to make food for the public in any location without a “valid public health permit”.
Romans 13:1-7 says “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment…”
We have been convicted in our hearts to obey the laws of man since they do not go against God. We are allowed to hand out pre-packaged, non-perishable food (plus socks) and so we shall.
You can help by joining us Monday nights when we go out to the homeless or by donating socks, water and food items (as described) or by giving an extra contribution with your tithe. We could also do with a lot of prayer and love.
Check back often to find out more and to read about our efforts and experiences.

I find it interesting that the people who make the laws (the City of $an Diego) act like they’re above the law! If this isn’t true, I seriously doubt the City of $an Diego would be in such dire financial straits.
“San Diego. The finest city money can buy”
Actually, in this case, itâ€™s San Diego County, but whatâ€™s important to remember is that this law is intended to protect the health and wellfare of all San Diegians. It is not targeted towards the homeless or charity groups like ourselves. We just happen to suffer the results but I wouldnâ€™t give up the law just so our ministry can continue making burritos. Itâ€™s what makes eating out safe.
Hey Good day!! I happen to have a sock ministry of my own up in Northern California. I take about 60 pairs of socks, gloves, and wool hats out each month. God Bless you folks who would have compassion on our homeless brothers and sisters.
