Last night was a great night. We have a couple of people who went out with us to Love Park. It was really cool. It wasn’t too hot or too cold. We had probably the greatest weather we have ever had. We had a lot of homeless people out tonight. Usually they are found sitting on the park benches, looking like “normal people” taking a break on a bench.
While I sat on the bench, Leroy came up and sat down to talk. He was supposed to have surgery but was unable to because he didn’t have a ride home from the hospital, which was a requirement for going through the surgery. He was a little upset over the whole ordeal but realized that he could do nothing about it. We sat for probably an hour or so just talking about a variety of things. I was glad to talk to him. He asked me if I would pray for him as he was hoping to get the surgery done later this month.
My final conversation was with a guy named “Pastor Will.” That is what I call him anyway. He loves to preach. He is your main-man, gospel preacher from the city. With no Bible in hand, he spent twenty minutes and prayed and shared Scripture. I am glad he showed up as well.
I know this is a short post about our homeless outreach but there really isn’t much to write about. I hope to meet some new people next time and have more to write about. God has been so faithful to me in the relationships I have begun with my friends in the city. God bless.
