Hey all,

My name is Jon Stewart. My wife, Marie, and I are both staff members at the Winston-Salem Rescue Mission: www.wsrescue.org.

Mike, I was greatly challenged by your book. I am thankful that God would use you in the capacity He did, so you could share your experiences with other Christians and hopefully light a fire under many of us to get out of our comfort zones and onto the street.

We have somehow trained ourselves to look down on those who are "at the bottom of the barrel" when in God's eyes, we were in exactly the same boat. Showing Christ love to the "unlovely" is what we are called to do.

Like Mike did in the closing of his book, I encourage everyone to get in contact with your local rescue mission and see how you can be of help. If you dont have a rescue mission near you, find a church with an inner city outreach program and volunteer.
