Over: My mother-in-law always talked about how her blessings were overflowing. Her blessings flowed like water and never stopped.
Every day that she lived , she saw it as an opportunity to help someone, ranging from encouraging words, donations of food or clothing, to sheltering other, her "Flo" was infallible.
Psalm 23:5 You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.......
Flo: My mother-in-law’s name. (‘Flo’rence A. Johnson)
Missions: The work we do for God, serving his people
On April 8, 2007, Florence Johnson passed away (my mother-in-law). Before she passed, her dream was to open a restaurant. My mother-in-law loved to cook, especially for other people. Food always brought her joy and allowed her to spread it amongst others. Flo' rence had just gotten her restaurant license 2006 and was excited to open "Antigua Delight." her very own restaurant.
Unfortunately, given her passing, she was not able to fulfill her dream. During her eulogy so many people talked about how she loved to serve and help others. Seeing the passion "Flo" had for other, I founded Over-Flo Missions as a way of "carrying on her torch" by doing God's work.
On July 25th 2013, I went to Madison and 15th Avenue in Phoenix- I remembered standing in the midst of so many homeless people and just thanking God that He placed me where I needed to be at that time. As I watched the people sitting around talking and eating, a gentleman stood out of the crowd and started singing. I never heard this song, “I Could Only Imagine” and tears started to flow. At that moment, I knew what I WANTED to do.
Over-Flo Missions is a faith based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We are built on Biblical principles: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Over-Flo Missions’ purpose is to be a community organization supporting individuals and families re-establish their lives. We provide meals, water, personal hygiene packages, and other resources that help individuals and families during their temporary situation.
We also support other organizations by assisting and helping them prepare and serve meals. Working TOGETHER we can eliminate out homelessness one person at a time.
Our purpose is to bring awareness to hunger and homelessness and help to resolve it. This is our way of advocating and being a voice for those in need. Awareness + Advocating = Action. Hunger can take your voice: Be a voice of power and help!
To empower and rebuild the lives of homeless individuals and families with food insecurities by providing healthy meals, supportive services and other basic essentials that will bring hope to their circumstances.
