“Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in the way.” Psalm 25:8



“Almighty God, you who call us to prayer and who offer yourself to all who seek your face, pour out your Holy Spirit upon us today and deliver us from coldness of heart, a wandering mind, and wrongful desires. By the power of your Spirit place within us steadfast love and devotion, so that today we may worship and serve you with all of our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

  • We gave Valentine's gifts to women on the 5th. While there were fewer than usual, it was meaningful to those who received.
  • We received a generous grant for our outreach center and a small one for our anti-trafficking work. These were greatly needed.
  • We have one new Uzbek woman in our program.
  • One of our trafficked women accepted Jesus.
  • Thank God that Gomer-Sozo has managed to stay sober and continues to resist temptation to drink.


  • COVID restrictions continue to impact our neighborhood. The bar area is still closed and there are few women on the streets. The ones who are here are depressed and desperate. Pray for wisdom in reaching out to those we see and those we do not.

“Looking Back with Ruby Dee”

February 28th @ 6:00 p.m. Go to our website www.fbcdbq.org and go to link for YouTube.

Ms. Dee was an acclaimed actress and author. She graced the stage and screen for more than seventy years. She was the first Black woman to appear in a major role at the American Shakespeare Festival, in Stratford, Connecticut. She made several appearances on Broadway before getting national recognition for her 1950 film, The Jackie Robinson Story.

Ms. Dee was deeply committed to her art and the Civil Rights movement. She paved the way for future Black actors both on and off the screen. She crusaded for civil rights and spoke out against injustice. Tune in as we view life through Ms. Dee’s eyes.
