Lonnell Stewart –
This is a must read.
Sheldon in his journey of 48 hours on the streets with the homeless, articulated a brave and hands-on experience that gives me a better understanding of the plight of the homeless.
For this, I say thanks. It definitely gives me inspiration to want to do more for this group when the opportunity presents itself. My prayer is that the Lord will continue to bless Shelton in his continued work. May the Lord also continue to bless and provide for the many who are unfortunate and find themselves homeless and on the streets.
