I want to thank you guys for this book and just sharing your experience. I am a fulltime youth pastor and part of ministry every year we go to Atlanta Ga and work with a church called Rescue Atlanta. www.rescueatlanta.com it is a church made up of homeless and poor men, women and children.

Now, I am not plugging this ministry, my point is this. I read your book and I had to totally re-evaluate myself and what I did every summer at RA. Every summer I would buy hundred of hotdogs and pass them out to the homeless thinking I was doing an awesome thing, but I realized that sure the food fed them for a day and satisified that crave and desire for food, but what was I doing for their spiritual man. I had the opportunity to feed them for life by sitting down and just talking to them.

I have ordered 30 copies of your book and will use it every summer to help prepare the youth that in our in my church.

Your story and faith has challenged me and I thank you for that and definetly give God the glory he deserves for using you to reach not only the homeless but also the clueless christian.

Sincerely

Well, I wanted to update since the last time that I left a comment. I have since received the 30 copies of the book and have circulated it through my church and an honest evaluation is I have had about 20 adults and 15 teens read the book. My goal is to have every teen and every adult read this book at least once.

Reason being is this: Of course it definetly gives a perspective of the homeless lifestyle and how they need Christ and compassion. But this book showed me so much more. It showed me the state of the church and those living in the church based on the reception mike and sam received. This book shows that we have been just caught up in the church "habit" and not the lifestyle of Christ. Also, a great story about faith and trust in Christ.

Based on the feedback from those that have already read the book is this...That it was an unbelievable book and they have passed it forward to others to read.

Again thanks for sharing your story but ultimately for following Christ's direction.
