Somerset West Night Shelter


The Bible says that Jesus had no place to lay His head. Nevertheless, He had everything. Everything in Heaven and earth belonged to Him.  I was once where you are today; William said, desperate and rejected by society. I also walked the streets. I also stretched my hand out for bread. I also felt like giving up, because I believed that the next day, and every other day that would follow would just bring along more sadness and hopelesness.  But my friends, Jesus gives strength to the weary and is always with us. He loves you. He will never and has never given up on you. He came down to this earth and suffered on that cross because of His love for you. It is written that He bore our griefs, and carried our sorrows. Maybe some of you are hoping to see your children again, some of you might feel that you are all alone and that nothing matters any longer. Listen, you call upon Jesus in secret and He will answer you. The loving arms of Jesus, are always ready to embrace and comfort you. He is faithful. He is the lover of your soul. He loves you and He cares about you. Maybe you don’t own much in this world, but your Father who is the Great God of Heaven and earth, has prepared mansions for you in Heaven. Don’t take note of men, of how they look down upon you and try to make you believe that all hope is gone. That you are a hopless case. God is your maker, and in His eyes you are more precious than all the treasures of this world. He, is your hope.
