In 2006, Luke and Karla Redus felt a calling to feed the homeless around them. Not sure exactly what to do, they bought five dozen eggs, two 3lb-bags of tater tots, and 200 flour tortillas totaling $27.54. The next day, they loaded up the car with their three boys and some homemade breakfast tacos and headed to downtown Conroe.
They intended to simply follow God’s leading to share His love and some good food with the homeless. But after a few meals under bridges and tossing a football with “Bull” and “Yakity Yak,” they quickly realized that God had bigger plans!
What started as a simple, God-given vision to feed the homeless, Compassion United, has grown into the most comprehensive support ministry in Montgomery County. Now, over a decade later, serving people is still at the heart of all we do yet with a more defined, dynamic purpose to provide outreach, relief and empowerment to those on the fringes of society.
