|OUR CHURCH HISTORY
Rev. Leona "Clements" Benoit founded the ministry here in Lake Charles, Louisiana in 1987 by feeding homeless citizens on the street corners, and visiting the sick in local nursing homes, and visiting others in prisons and jails.
In 1990, Rev. Leona "Clements" Benoit founded the first Shelter for Homeless Women and Children called: (The Potter's House). In 1992, she founded the first Shelter for Homeless Men called: (The Lord's Place).
In December of 2000, Rev. Leona "Clements" Benoit founded the first Shelter for Homeless Children called: (The Wilderness Children's Home), which is currently being used as a Group Home for the Homeless.
In addition to these three ministries, in 1989 Rev. Leona "Clements" Benoit, also founded The Lord's Outreach Worship Center located in Lake Charles, Louisiana. This Annointed Place of Worship is located at the junctions of Martin Luther King Hwy. and La. Hwy 90. Approximately thirty (30) miles from the Gulf of Mexico, and thirty (30) miles from the Louisiana/Texas border.

Current Events and Suggestions
ELECTION IS OVER AGAIN! ITS TIME TO PRAY!
(1) MOST AMERICANS HAVE RE-ELECTED OUR PRESIDENT: WE NEED TO PRAY TO INSURE THAT GOD'S PERFECT WILL, WILL BE DONE Through Him. President Barack Obama will need our prayers during his term in office.
(2) I WANT TO BE PERFECTLY CLEAR HERE: I do not agree with many of the moral issues that our President has endorsed. We are Christians and we cannot agree with Sin. But according to 1 Timothy 2:1-3, we are commanded by the word of God to Pray for our leaders so we can live a peaceful life. It is our Prayer that All Christians would Pray & leave the rest to the Holy Spirit.
(3) Our Country Has Come Out of a Recession, Many Wars have Ended at the same time, We have Serious Moral Issue, Crime is Still on the Rise, Many have Lost their Jobs, and besides this, Many are still not coming to Christ. This is a Good Opportunity for People to Come Back to Christ. We Need to Pray America!
(4) The Fish Are Biting. We Are Preparing To Win Souls In 2015: Let us give Thanks and Praise To Our Lord Jesus Christ, for Giving His Life Freely on the Cross so that we all can enjoy both the Spiritual and the Natural freedom that we so enjoy in this country. As always, we are commanded to pray for our leaders and the people that is in charge, especially for our Clergy and our Troops that is stationed all over the world. Let us not stop praying, our country is going through some serious change, they need our prayers and support more now that ever before. Remember God Is Watching Us!
