I'll be honest, I'm trying to get in touch (at least by email) with Mike or Sam. It's a long shot, but it's worth it in my mind.

I met the two of you during your first couple of weeks being homeless. I was a "Servant Corps" Summer Intern with the Denver Rescue Mission in the summer of 2003 while you were staying at DRML and The Farm. I remember meeting Mike first (and thinking you had awesome hair!) and meeting Sam a week or two later (and thinking your hair was pretty sweet, too) when we took a tour of the farm.

There were three of us girls who worked at DRML that summer for 3-4 days a week. I worked with Caroline in Client Services ... My office was downstairs off the cafeteria area where the bread was stored and where the payphones were. Random information.

Anyway, ... that was the summer after I graduated from college, and I was an intern looking to kill some time until I figured out what I wanted to do with my life. I still haven't figured that out, but I'm working on it. Currently, I'm living on the east coast working in another Rescue Mission full-time.

So, I'm looking to get in touch to ask some questions and *deep breath* see if either of you might be interested in visiting the Carolina's in 2007 to attend our Mission's annual banquet. It's a long shot, I know, but as I said before - It's worth a shot.

My email is sojo21@aim.com if either of you are ever able to make contact. It would be a huge blessing even just to hear "no" from you. "Yes" or even "Maybe" would be a greated blessing, but ... yeah.

peace out.

After reading your story I felt most compassion in regards for your need to shower. My husband and I were thinking of opening a mission for just that purpose. While the person was showering their clothes get washed. Maybe a hairdresser to cut & shave. I believe God wants us do do whatever we do with excellence. I just wanted to know if this would truly be something the homeless would use? Not a overnight place. Just know by reading your book you all needed a shower, but would a true homeless even want one? Please write me and let me know. If yes, we will probably have tons more questions. God bless
