Live Now Ministries has been serving the Rio Grande Valley since early 1979, and has fed, clothed, provided and found shelter for the indigent and for the homeless over the past four decades.  A large percentage of those served are veterans for whom we have a special regard.  Our organization also ministers to prisoners and their families providing spiritual help to those in need.   We also cater to the youth in our community through our Youth Light Center.

Our ministry is now located on five acres in San Benito, Tx. We have created “The Ark” which incorporates a Veterans Outreach Center, a homeless shelter for families, as well as a shelter for men, a food pantry, soup kitchen, a medical clinic and thrift shop.  We hope to have our grand opening in June.  Our vision for the future encompasses summer feeding programs and other activities.

Live Now is in need of your prayers as well as volunteers.  We welcome visitors at our facility as well as on our website.


The Master’s Pen

As I hold the pen and write, each word is as a teardrop that falls onto the page.  The Master’s Pen is His Spirit’s heartbeat for a  world filled with confusion, which has resulted from the evil of sin on earth.

The Creator of the Universe says He hears the cries of the needy. The clamoring voices of suffering humanity reach His ears.  The physically and emotionally sick.  Abused men, women and children. The hungry, homeless, and destitute.  Neglected elderly, and the handicapped.  Addicts, prisoners and their families and the unborn – yes!  The unborn and many more cry out in anguish.  Their cries reach His ears.

The Master’s Pen continues to write that which He wrote thousands of years ago:  “I was hungry and you gave me meat, I was thirsty  and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took me in, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came unto me…Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these, you ave done it unto me.”

The Master also says, “I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.”  He is true to His promises. Not only can we have abundant life, but also we can help others by showing them how to Live Now.


The Master’s Pen is one of the greatest gifts God has provided to us and through it we share his love through poetry and story writing. There is an abundance of writing from the world, and too little of it is Christ-centered. All the writing from The Master’s Pen helps Live Now Ministries share the gospel in a unique medium.

“My Spirit Speaks” is a book that is used to minister to those suffering with severe depression. In many lives we have seen “My Spirit Speaks” bring deliverance, especially to the youth. It is printed in English and Spanish, and can make a big difference in your life or ministry.
