[12/18/20]   Pastor Leon out of surgery and relieved from pain.

Ay God!

He still has a couple of procedures but that rude kidney stone is goin' down!

[12/17/20]   A note from LadyBirdd:

Pastor Leon is in a room now and going into surgery in about 2 hours. He has a large kidney stone, along with a kidney infection. They are putting a stint in from kidney to bladder to allow for flow. Once they have the infection under control, they will remove it if it has not passed. We are good!
Yesterday all of the gifts and food left our property and headed to Navarro County for the chosen families, and Saturday, JR and Debee will take the remaining gifts and food to the families in Chatfield. Lots of shopping, tons of wrapping, but God provided for all!

We covet your prayers,

A Christmas Miracle

A Christmas Miracle about to happen! Dear SOUL Family, I want to make this short and sweet; unfortunately, there is an urgent call to action, and we need your assistance immediately; and you need to hear the narrat

The Kings Closet needs gently used clothing


I want to make this short and sweet; unfortunately, there is an urgent call to action, and we need your assistance immediately; and you need to hear the narrative of this story and these circumstances.

We reached out via email to communicate that we have a small rural community that needs a Christmas miracle and a short time to plan this. Friday, I received the detailed list of the families and the heart-wrenching back-ground stories. It's been a tough year for everyone, but this community was already dealing with poverty before a worldwide pandemic. There is a fifteen-year-old girl who suffered the loss of her father through suicide this year, and very recently, her home burnt down, killing her mother, and a total loss of all belongings. There is a grandmother on a fixed income, taking care of thirteen grandchildren due to parental drug addiction. Saturday, the local Pastor called and asked to add another family to this list; a mother threw some clothes in a bag and took her two children to her parent's home and said she did not want them any longer. The grandparents were only looking for food, not even thinking ahead to Christmas. Some hard-working people lost their homes due to the pandemic and loss of work. The stories go on and on.

Will you help us share the love of Jesus with these families?
Can you adopt a child or a family to provide gifts for?
We need canned and/or non-perishable foods, along with turkey(s) or ham(s), for a food basket.

I am so sorry that this is so quick, and our time frame is about ten days to get this together.

If you can help, please call or text Debra at 214-407-2888; or email [email protected].

You can donate the money at; however, please contact me and tell me how you would like the funds designated, whether to purchase gifts or food - I will gladly do any shopping!

Let's face it; statistically, people do not like being asked for money, and yet here I am. I do this because I am passionate about SOUL SHARED FOOD MINISTRY and the outreach that they serve.

Many of you know my story and that I came to SOUL CHURCH just having been released from incarceration and living in the shelter downtown. Eight years ago, Pastor Leon and Jennifer took a chance and hired me to work full time for the church. Trust me when I say that never in my life would I have thought that I would ever profess to be the secretary for a church. Yet, through the grace of God, I have learned He is a God of second chances, and I am so thankful for that, and to Pastor and Jennifer for being open to the Holy Spirit's direction. SOUL CHURCH is about reaching in and touching the lives of the lost and broken, and that was me.

Many changes have taken place this past year; with the parking lot sold, we lost our place of worship, the pandemic hit, and we were directed to shelter in place and social distance. We now face many new challenges and changes to our daily lives, and in this, our communities face drastic food shortages. Last year, in Texas alone, one in seven people experience food insecurity daily; I'm sure those numbers are staggering now! The community demand has grown aggressively this year, and SOUL SHARED FOOD MINISTRY has been there to feed the need. The USDA defines food insecurity as limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate food or uncertain ability to acquire these foods in a socially acceptable way. Hunger is a reality and primarily a symptom of economic uncertainty. A household income that cannot keep pace with the cost of living combined with the unexpected, such as a world pandemic, can force families to make impossible choices between food and other basic needs. Our most vulnerable populations, such as children and seniors, bear some of the most significant consequences.

Food security is built on three sources:

-Food availability: enough, consistently
-Food access: adequate resources for a nutritious diet
-Food use: appropriate use to sustain nutrition and care

Many of us budget for our groceries and take the local grocery store's mere existence for granted. Food availability and access are a problem in many of our neighboring communities, where people struggle to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy food options. A new catchphrase is "Food deserts"; they exist within our more impoverished and rural communities. Many people lack personal transportation or have limited or no access to public transit, or travel long distances to get to a store. The only food sources within these communities are convenience stores where higher prices and the low nutrition grab-and-go seem to be the most common choice. SOUL SHARED FOOD MINISTRY seeks to eliminate food insecurity that our communities face and break down the barriers to access to healthier, nutritious food by improving access and availability. We have a free food source, and in turn, the only requirement in receiving food is to be hungry. However, most people do not consider the cost and maintenance of the equipment and facility to get the food to the hungry. In all transparency, when SOUL CHURCh was put on hold, as with most ministries, tithes and offerings went down. Generally, these are the funds that keep a ministry going. God is in control, Hallelujah, SOUL CHURCH, and SOUL SHARED FOOD MINISTRY are still out there being the hands and feet of Jesus.

We are passionate about serving those in need, and we would love for you to be passionate with us because WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER!

I want to thank you in advance for your support and prayers. It is a fact that we could not do this without you. SOUL CHURCH has the most amazing people to work with, and we love you so much!

Will you join me in supporting a good cause? Today, #GivingTuesday, we are raising money for SOUL SHARED FOOD MINISTRY, and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $1 or $500. Please remember every little bit helps.

Every week, SOUL SHARED FOOD MINISTRY touches the lives of thousands of people in need by providing free food and is such a great joy to receive letters from the families and their children.

You can make a difference today by partnering with SOUL SHARED FOOD MINISTRY.

This year has challenged us to turn our homes into offices and reimagine how we provide our services while keeping physically distant. It's called upon us to be resilient because our communities need us now more than ever.

It's time to unleash generosity, to help our neighbors, inspire more giving, and create access to healthy, nutritious food for those in need.

Christmas Miracle 2020



General information

We believe the strongest message you can give to a dying world is that of a living Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. That message is proclaimed every Sunday morning, as the Lord's servants do what they can to show the love of Christ. Many of the servants of S.O.U.L. Church have come from a rough background. Then they were touched with the grace and forgiveness that is found in Jesus. Therefore we love with no strings attached, just as our Lord has loved us.
