This morning, my team felt led to go to the Elvis Presley Festival. On the way, we noticed Gary, a homeless gentleman sitting on a bench. We stopped and he asked us for a ride to Helping Hands. As we dropped him off he stated we should go to the flea market as he will be working there later today. We went, believing the Lord was using Gary’s words to direct our steps. We split off two by two. Aaron and I ended up pairing off together. He was such a blessing to me. I enjoyed hearing how the Lord is transforming his mind and life. He is the same age as my stepson Jonah, who we have not heard from for several months. My prayer is the Lord will grab a hold of Jonah and bring him back to Himself.
We ran into the other guys on our team and they stated they found a girl with purple hair who they wanted to pray for, but didn’t want to appear they were hitting on her. So, Aaron and I began looking for her. We ended up talked to another young lady and her mother who also had purple hair. She said the other two guys from our group already prayed for her and give her a Bible. Aaron and I ended up speaking life into both of them and encouraging her mom to get back into church and ministry. She admitted she missed being connected to a church family. Our prayer is they will find a new church and get plugged and begin using the gifts the Lord has given each of them to advance His Kingdom.
