Today, I helped out in feeding the homeless. You see tons of people come up and take the food and say thank you and yes, that feels good but that’s not what moved me. After most got their food, we walked around and talked to the different people. It really makes me realize how much I have and that I take it for granted a lot of the time. I listened to a man talk about the feeling of a warm shower and bed to sleep in and how nice that was. He described that it was comfy to sleep on a piece of cardboard at night, and that he could sleep just fine. Most of those people explained it in a way that showed how appreciative they were of these meals, and that they were just fine. Here I am complaining about the dumb stuff half the time when they don’t even say a word. Twas a lovely day, and a lovely eye opener.
Yesterday a friend of mine and two youth group leaders went on an awesome missions trip! We went and sorted through clothes to be sold at a shop for homeless people. The ones we worked with were part of a three month program helping them stop drug addictions and/or help them get back on their feet with some money and experience( and by experience, I mean giving them a job so they get into the routine of getting up early and earning their money ). They were some of the nicest, happy people you would ever meet! We had so much fun joking around and helping them for a couple hours— I hope I get to do it again sometime! The LORD was definitely present and in those peoples heart; it’s so great to be amongst other Christians!
