Mike I just want to say thank you for writing the book. I met you at the Denver Rescue Mission. I was one of the sponsors that came with the group from St. Louis. While I was there, I shared with you my calling to minister to the souls of homeless people. After reading your book, God has renewed my calling and taught me many things that I would have never known. I am currently a leader of a street ministry called Lampstand that provides food and clothing to the homeless. I am also going to St. Louis Christian College to get a BS in urban and intercultural ministry; I have one more year. I have an internship at St. Patrick Center, which is an organization to help homeless people. Through all of that sometimes I become so wrapped up in the work that I forget why I am doing those things in the first place. I love doing homeless ministry but I feel like I have become used to the poverty and destruction of additions. Through reading your book, God has shown me a glimpse of hope for every homeless person I know. Not only that but the Lord has asked me to share the hope with them. I have a passion to tell the people living on the streets that there is a way out and that God has a plan of hope and a future for them (Jer 29:11). So again I want to thank God for inspiring you to write the book so that He could bless me through it.

hello Mike,

I'm 20 years old, I live somewhere in Europe in Romania I am sure that you don't know where is that:)but that's the beauty because in this forgotten place I had the honor to read your book.I 've got it from a missionary bus with christian books anyway ..

I love the fact that you took it to the limits!!I told my dad yesterday what book I was reading and he sad "I hope you don't come with any ideas"and I was like "it's to late for that":)

I want to have the courage to look them in the eyes and see that they are people too,they have names, maybe dreams and a story to tell.

Please pary for my generation I don't know how is in U.S.A but in my country... in my house if you take it to the limits then you're crazy

God is so great! no matter how far your take it, when your going so see him in heavens and how great , perfect and almighty he is ,I bet that's the moment when your realizing that you still have room.

(my english sucks but I hope you get the idea:)

you gave me hope!!!
