Established in 2004, Jesus House Odessa is supported by outstanding citizens here and abroad, as well as other organizations and foundations. As God provides, we work daily to meet the needs of the poor and needy, and homeless population in the area. To the best of our ability, we strive to not only meet their needs, but also to show them that there is a better way to live.
Jesus House Odessa is a minsitry of Faith Temple Fellowship church in Odessa, Tx. Faith Temple is a family of caring individuals pastored by Donny Kyker. Donny had a vision to fulfill the mission to the least of these as in Matthew 25:31- 46 and teach them the principle of Matthew 6:33. Believing that everyone has good in them, Donny and his congregation and other's in the body of Christ work daily to do what God calls every believer to do in His word.
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 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.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fireprepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
