on

Man was driving in Pasco County, Florida, one day when he saw something suspicious near a building. When he came in for a closer inspection, he realized that there were two young boys alone by themselves. Wearing only diapers, these boys were filthy from sitting on the trash.

Pastor Ronnie Stewart and his wife Krystal knew about these little boys. In fact, these little boys were brothers. Their family was homeless, and they always showed up to Pastor Ronnie’s Refuge Church in order to eat at the soup kitchen. Krystal recalls seeing the family,

“Our hearts were breaking as evening came, along with storm clouds. We began imagining the night these boys were about to have as we were getting ready to go home to a warm, dry house.”

Pastor Ronnie and Krystal knew that they couldn’t just let these boys suffer. So one day, they convinced the boy’s parents to let them take the boys back to their place, where Pastor Ronnie and Krystal took care of them as best they could. Although Pastor Ronnie and Krystal already had three children, they were more than happy to take care of two more.

That Sunday, however, everything changed. The boy’s parents came up to Pastor Ronnie and Krystal after service and asked them a question that left both Pastor Ronnie and Krystal stunned…

My heart stopped as I heard my husband’s words. I closed my eyes and prayed for courage as I felt our lives getting ready to change drastically. As pastors, we have always tried to help people as much as we could, but this was on a whole different level. It was bigger than us and we knew it.

Let me back up to the beginning. We started a church called Refuge located in Pasco County, Florida which happens to have a rather large homeless population. We knew this community was hurting, so we dove right in and started helping in every way we could. We partnered with Metropolitan Ministries, serving free hot meals at the church twice a week (Tuesdays & Saturdays) to the homeless. In a matter of months, we were feeding 500 people a week and offering free clothes & toiletries.”

“On Friday, Nov 6th, we were working all day at the church, and I couldn’t help but notice the tiny face of a toddler staring in at us through the glass doors. His younger brother lay strapped in a stroller next to their parents for an estimated 10 hours that day. It gripped my heart. I recognized the parents, they had been attending the feeding program for a few weeks. The family, along with another man, camped out under the awning of the church all day. It was evident at that time that the children were in need, and I knew we were placed in this community to meet needs.
