Mike,



Whats up bro. A friend of mine handed me your book over the weekend and I couldn't put it down. It was an awesome source of encouragement to read about your total faith in stepping out into the unknown and seeing how your life changed as a result.



Truth be told, 5 months ago I was sitting in my dingy little apartment in downtown Nashville when God called me to minister to the homeless...only He told me to be homeless while I do it. Today is my first day on the streets. Basically, I just want to take homeless ministry to a deeper level of intimacy and actually really get to know the guys that the Spirit leads me to. I figure what better way to be someones friend than to live with them? It's challenging in a way...I'm not really offering these guys anything but friendship and love. I dont have money, I dont have some cool program for them to get into, I just want to get out there and try to communicate the love of Christ without preaching a sermon.



Anyways, just thought I'd let you know how much your book spoke to me and encouraged me to step out into this area of life that God has called me to.



Peace bro,



John
