And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given us the ministry of reconciliation
2 Corinthians 5:18 KJV
Jesus once gave one of his disciples a simple yet powerful charge. He told him "If you love Me feed my people." With this in mind Jaime Torres Ministries presents the Slangin' Hope Tour!
We'll be in different cities that have been riddled with drugs and violence, and we'll share the life changing truth about God's love for people. Jaime Torres is bringing a team of folks into each city ready to feed these communities food, ready to pray with them, and give them Jesus!
These all day events will consist of music, testimonies, baptism and prayer.
We need your help! If you would like more details about how you can join us and help us at the actual event, please contact us using the form below. If you would like to support this movement financially, please use Cash App $jtmtour or by mail PO Box 2762 Morganton, NC 28680. Please specify your gift is for the tour.

You Can't Kill the Miracle
Jaime had been in and out of prisons for much of his adult life. Among these were Fort Leavenworth Military Prison and Riker’s Island. But the real turning point in his life came when he was going to spend his whole life in prison: A life sentence.
For many years I was sick – sin sick, but He loved me.
How is it this guy can go to prison and get his life back?
How can I come from this hell hole and be raised up?
The miracle got shot six times in the chest and survived.
The miracle earned his GED in prison.
– Jaime Torres

A Proven Success
You Feeling Me!
And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet....for this my son...was lost, and is found.
Luke 15:21-22, 24
Prove yourself. In today's world, that's what you constantly feel you have to do, right? On the job, among friends, even at home you're always working to win the approval you need. Working to convince those around you that you deserve the salary, the friendship and even the love they give you.
Is there any escape?
You better believe there is! It's called grace. Unearned and undeserved favor and acceptance. And there's only one place you can find it—in the heart of God Himself.
There's no better picture of God's grace in action than in the story of the prodigal son. Few of us today can really feel the impact of that story like those first Jewish listeners Jesus told it to. You see, by their standards the prodigal son had committed some of the most despicable acts possible. He'd not only taken advantage of his father and spent his inheritance in riotous living, he'd left the nation of Israel and made covenant with a foreigner—a pig farmer! That was as low as you could get.
In their eyes, that boy's rebellion was so serious his father's only recourse was to disown him.
But that's not what this father did! He welcomed his repentant son home with open arms. He offered him grace—unmerited favor—that was based on the father's love rather than the son's performance.
Next time you catch yourself struggling to make up to God for something you've done wrong, working to win His approval, let the story of the prodigal son set you free. Let it remind you that, in spite of your sins, your Father has received you with open arms. He's put a robe of righteousness on your back and His signet ring on your hand. He's put the shoes of sonship on your feet!
Do you feel unworthy of all that? Sure you do. You were unworthy of it. But God hasn't based His relationship with you on your worthiness. He's based it on His love and on Jesus' worthiness. You don't have to struggle to prove yourself to Him. As far as He's concerned, you're a proven success.
You Feel Me!
