“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.” Proverbs 19:17
My desire is to make God known to everyone, no matter their status or in what conditions they find themselves. I also want to help people in their time of need. I want to help the people that God has entrusted to me to grow closer to Him. Yudith, a lady from our church who I evangelize with, brought me to these 2 homeless men, Misu and George. They live on the streets and don’t have any documentation. It’s sad that I met people who laugh at these men and make fun of them.
I had the chance to speak to Misu and George more and share the Gospel with them. They were so happy. George was saying that only 2 people have come looking for him. One came to take pictures of him and put them on Facebook and then me. I go and speak to him and bring him food. He is always happy and joking around when I visit him. Misu is a man who was raised in an orphanage. He went through some very terrible things in his life. He wanted help to get his papers in order. I was able to help him and, this week, he will be getting his ID.
Next, I plan to go with George to get his ID. I don’t know how to get them out of these conditions. They drink a lot because it’s cold out and they need a way to keep their body warm. They are misunderstood and ignored. People say they are not worth being in society. I don’t see them like this. I see two people who need Jesus and need to be delivered from alcohol addiction and homelessness.
I was able to give a pair of boots to Misu. George still needs a thick jacket and a pair of boots because his are worn out. If anyone would like to help with this, please let me know. I want to help them as much as I can and I plan to continue to do this long term. Pray that I would have wisdom and discernment and to be able to share the Gospel with them everytime I go visit them with groceries.
