Hunger For Love hits the streets of Tyler


A group in Tyler is taking their love and God's word to the streets.

Hunger For Love is a program of mission Tyler that gathers once a week, to share a hot meal and Bible study with the homeless and anyone else who wants to come out.

Every Saturday morning Hunger For Love gets together to spread of a message of love and hope.

"Whenever we moved here, under the bridge, we started really connecting with people we started loving them. We discovered that we get just as much out of it as we give. It's amazing and beautiful what God does under here; it's like a symphony that God is singing," says Jason Eslicker, with Hunger For Love.

"You can tell they really care, they excellent food and it's just a really mellow place to be," says David Zillmer, who attends every Saturday morning.

Pastor and storyteller, David Montalvo, says it's inspiring to see the youths that have chosen to help head up the program.

"I didn't realize how many young people would come. It's actually really amazing and I think that this is indicative of something the church really wants to see happen. What we're doing here is living our faith out in such a real tangible way that youth want to get involved," says Montalvo.
