Bible Verses of the Week  

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:35-40


Quote of the Week

What you can become depends upon what you can overcome.”  

~ A.D. Williams


I am God.  Today I will be handling all of your problems. 

Please remember that I do not need your help.

If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. 

Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. 

All situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Holding onto it will delay the resolution of your problem.

Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

Because I do not sleep or slumber, there is no need for you to lose any sleep. Rest, my child.

If you need to contact me, I am only a prayer away.

We hope this website is helpful for you, and we hope Harvest House can meet your needs.



The seed was planted when Gary Tatu saw a picture of the church in a real estate listing book. A few days later the seed was cultivated at a John Michael Talbot concert where all night the messages of, "Sell all you have, give to the poor and follow Me," and "Peter, do you love Me? Feed My sheep" seemed directed specifically at them. Gary and his wife Linda left the concert and drove by the church. After months of research, prayer and seeing God's loving hand directing them, they sold their home in the suburbs and, on April 12, 1993, purchased the derelict city church which is now Harvest House.
