Can We Talk
Can_We_Talk_Photo_1Reaching the world. One person at a time.

NLCMC is a harvesting church aimed at fulfilling the Great Commission given by our Lord Jesus Christ in (Matthew 28:18-20).

We're in the fields of Japan

Letting people of every culture know of the love of Jesus and that it's not too late for a turning point in their life.
We're committed to "Can We Talk?" Mission Ministry, because God has allowed (us) NLCMC to "Just Talk" (Witnessing about Jesus), encouraging the broken-hearted and feeding the homeless in Japan. In turn God is doing "Just this"- changing their lives and state of mind. Even in brokenness--"He's closer than you think". People who are homeless in Japan are not far from where you live. We may not see them or know where to find them because we aren't looking--but they're there. As Christians, shouldn't we be looking for those who need the hope of Christ?


Volunteer
It can be difficult to minister to homeless people if you don't know where to start. Can_We_Talk_Photo_2The toughest question is "How can you find people to minister to if they don't have a permanent place to live?" This is the first step in reaching out to the homeless community, find out where they are and go to them.

One of the biggest things you can do to help is to volunteer your time in the ministry, aiding homeless shelter's, or work at an outreach event for the homeless. Most homeless people just want someone to talk to and to treat them like a friend. It can get very lonely living on the streets and people just want to come to a safe environment where they are loved and cared for.  Start showing the love of Christ to the homeless by living it out with your actions.

Pray

The most important thing you can do for the homeless community is to pray for them. Make your prayers personal by engaging a homeless person and asking them how you can pray for them. This simple engagement will show them that you care about them on a personal level and will encourage them through the day.

We need to remember that each person is a child of God and does not deserve to be looked down upon. It can be hard to overcome stereotypes and look the other way when it comes to homelessness but we need to share the hope that only Christ can give. Remember that whatever you do to help, you are serving Christ. See Christ in each person and start ministering to the homeless today


15 Minutes of Fame
Some say that everyone will experience at least 15 minutes of fame in their life. Most seem to be always seeking or expecting fame because they think they deserve it, and when and if they receive it, they always think that it is well deserved. But most who seek it or think they deserve it will only experience a manufactured fame that most would not confirm. That's why I think it is interesting when someone, like a homeless person, receives that fame, even for 15 minutes, and is shocked to receive that kind of recognition. Maybe that is the only way to receive fame is by not seeking or expecting it. Certainly most would not think that real fame would be experienced by a homeless person who has an addiction to alcohol and has spent his whole life fighting the urge to drown his sorrows in a bottle, but it can happen.
