1 Corinthians 13:3
One more Thursday evening of Cardiff Night Shelter - and then it is over until next Winter...... I've been pondering. Will we hear that some have been re-united with their families? Will we hear that some have found work and a place to live? Will we see the same guys next winter? Will we hear that some have lost their lives due to and overdose? Will we hear that some are in prison? Who will be on the streets this coming winter?
'There, but for the grace of God, go I.' I remember my mother using those words in the small town where we grew up. Every time she saw someone less fortunate and struggling - she would say those words.
Over this period we have seen some guys come to Christ. One has gone to a Christian rehab centre. One of the guys went 'cold turkey' to come off heroin and has accepted Jesus as his Saviour. All of these guys need our continuous prayers.
We have come to love these guys - really love them. Our hearts have been broken and softened - what now, LORD? Open doors, we ask, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
