L.A. Dream Center

Hello I am JAnine VanDenBerg. I am now 49 years old. I have attended the Los Angles Dream Center twice for Short Term Missions trips.

Hospital they bought to house the disciples who want help

Ever since I went there it has been my dream to serve the community, and give back God’s love that I received when I was living on the streets. God is finally fulfilling my dreams when I began to attend United Christian Inner-City Ministries at 828 Jamison Avenue, S.E. Roanoke,VA 24017. I am now involved with a Ministry call “Under the Bridge” I can truly praise God for this because when I attended the “Short Term Mission” Trips Chris VanWinkle of the LA Dream Center had started “Under the Bridges”.He especially asked for me to do “Under the Bridges” ministry instead of doing all different ones in a week. “Under the Bridges” we went out on skid row everyday and witnessed to people. One time Chris was attempting to speak to a young pregnant lady. She was unable to get into a mission and then the man to whom got her pregnant lied and stated he was working and he received the last room the mission paid for only IF you worked. She was devastated and was talking about suicide. Chris VanWinkle was not able to calm her down so he asked me to speak with her. She said what does this Christian know about hard times? I then was able to tell her my testimony, and she grabbed me and cried. She said “You were hurt worse than me I am sorry.” She promised to not commit suicide and we then got her into the Dream Center the next day. Praise God. That was not a coincidence God was preparing me for the future. Thank you Father. Below are some videos of the LA Dream Center and I pray soon they will be replaceed with United Christian Inner-City Ministry videos. Because Pastor Mike English is another Mathew Barnett. He has many dreams and he follows God and they all will come true. God bless.( Here is the link for my full testimony):https://unitedchristianinnercityministry.wordpress.com/2012/02/29/hello-world/
