Aurora - The search Goes On

Our search for the homeless lady, Aurora, took a disappointing turn today. In our fourth attempt to make contact since first meeting her, we were met with the surprise that her makeshift home has been boarded up and the former occupants nowhere to be found.

We will keep looking. We plan to be on the streets each Saturday afternoon as strength permits.

Today, we also met several homeless people for the first time, and had five of them accompany us for services at the Baptist Rescue Mission. Praise the Lord for that. They heard a message from the Lord and received a warm meal and free clothing.

I requested permission from these homeless people to take their photograph in hopes of raising awareness of their plight so that perhaps more resources could be made available to the Mission to help meet their needs.

The homeless are from many backgrounds and ethnic groups, and range in age from the elderly to the very young.

It is a special blessing to be able to witness to each one and share with them the free gift of salvation that is in Jesus Christ. We did not have anyone saved today, but we lifted up the Lord and declared HIS name. Many tracts were passed out, and we will return.

They are precious in HIS sight.

Oh Bro. Sam, what a wonderful post. Those photos were so amazing. It's so easy to forget that there are people like that, living and trying to live.

Well be praying for Aurora. I'm sure she has no idea how many people are looking and caring for her.

Bless you Brother Sam, and keep up the great work!

Brother and friend Sam, it is my prayer that one day you can be a fulltime witness to all those lost souls. I have never met anyone so willing to put themselves out there for our Lord. You are an inspiration for all of us and I pray daily for you. You are blessed and a blessing to all who encounter you.

Your sister in Christ,
