I am very excited to introduce to you a new branch of Anna Donahue Ministries;
called ‘Hands and Feet’!
Last year around Christmas time, I had an overwhelming ‘burden’ as I pictured men and women making their beds on the cold, cold sidewalks of the inner city streets of New Orleans, La. In particular, I could hardly keep from crying as I thought of how cold their ‘hands’ and their ‘feet’ must get! Hence, ‘Hands and Feet’!
The Lord then impressed upon my heart that we are to ‘launch’ out and do something! Upon writing to Senior Pastors, Frank and Parris Bailey of our home church, Victory Fellowship, located in Metairie, La., we are thrilled to announce that they have agreed to become ‘partners’ with us in our ‘Hands and Feet’ endeavor!
As a result, at some time in the very near future, when the weather begins to change, members of Victory Fellowship Church and Anna Donahue Ministries will be handing out 50 goodie bags for the homeless. Each bag will include: 1 pair of socks, 1 pair of gloves, 1 hoodie, 1 book and a sandwich. (Thank you Pastor Heather Prosser for your organization!)
It’s a start! If you would like to join us when we hand out the ‘goodies’, please let me know! I will be posting on our website more as this branch of Anna Donahue Ministries grows. We are putting our ‘Adopt a Widow’ program under its umbrella.
It is due to the faithful giving of our partners that this outreach is now possible. It is imperative to me that you who give ‘see’ where your donations are going! This is just one area!
Thank you so much everyone!

HANDS AND FEET along with members of Victory Fellowship Church!
Such an amazing time last night ministering to the homeless of our city! My husband, (who was very moved), grabbed this photo of us all at the end of our outreach. We were holding hands and glorifying God! This location is underneath an overpass in downtown New Orleans, La.
Immediately prior to this photo, we had given out 125 plates of hot jambalaya and water bottles! Thank you to our ministry partners for making our ‘Hands and Feet’ outreach to the homeless possible!
Around the holidays when it was oh so cold, partners from Anna Donahue Ministries gathered at Victory Fellowship Church, Metairie, La., where together, we made peanut butter sandwiches, collected warm gloves and socks and put them into these beautiful red bags. We then hit the streets of New Orleans, La. and distributed the bags to the homeless of our city! Thank you partners for making ‘Hands and Feet’ outreach to the homeless possible!
