Story 1

“I remember speaking to a Dan a rough sleeper in the city. We were able to give him a hat and gloves and he was very grateful, as I sat with him he shared briefly of his own story and also about his ill health. He hadn’t been on the streets very long and he was quite depressed. I asked him if he was able to access local services around the city and he wasn’t familiar with what was available. I showed him the lanyards we carry and I pointed out where he could receive healthcare. After I gave him the lanyard he said he wanted to give me something and he got out his harmonica and his gift to me was a song, then he prayed for me. After his prayer I told him that I was a Christian and that I wanted to pray for him. So I prayed for him, he cried, we hugged and said goodbye. I may have spent more time with this one man that we usually spend with those we meet but this I could tell was certainly a God ordained encounter and one that Dan and I needed.”
