I'd like to apologize in advance for the length of this post. I feel like I need to share the incredible experience that I had after reading about Mike and Sam's journey.

My heart has always been for the people who are out on the streets, addicted to drugs, unloved and overlooked by the world. I have spent a great deal of time praying about my call and about the heart that I have for the overlooked. The Lord has consistently told me to be paitent and wait on Him to open the right doors so that He may best work through me.

I purchased the book in June and it sat on my shelf for months along with other books to read when I had the time. Recently, I felt compelled to read it and I started in and finished it in two or three days. From the first page to the last I felt like the Lord had something for me as a result of this book. I turned the last page to find contact information for the Association of Gospel Missions. The very next day I went to their website and the first thing I saw was a button titled Rescue School. I clicked on it immediately and began to read through the info. I met all of the requirements to begin their program and obtain a bachelor's degree in Rescue Missions. I called the director of the school right away and we worked everything out together. Soon I will begin my courses and I am meeting with the director of a homeless mission in Burlington, VT tomorrow afternoon so that I can do my internship with them and begin my journey towards committing myself full time to ministry to the homeless and broken on the streets. Everything fell together quickly and I knew that God had and has His hand in this whole journey. I feel like this is confirmation that my call is to the street, to the gutters, and to the people who are overlooked and unloved. I have been so blessed by the process that has come out of reading this book and God showed me that my heart was right and my calling was true through this book. I cannot thank you both enough for what you did and for what you continue to do through this journey of yours. Your call led me to my call and I am so thankful.

Just a final note on confirmation from the Lord. After connecting with the mission that I will interning with, I went to their website and browsed around. I landed on their upcoming events section and discovered that, of all the speakers in the world to speak at the annual fundraising banquet this coming May, Mike will be here in Burlington, VT speaking at the mission the Lord led me to. I was shocked! It was confirmation that the Lord wanted me there and that He used this book and Mike's journey to lead me to this mission. Thank you both again and God Bless! Mike, I look forward to meeting you in May. Safe travels and Bless you - Kelly

Don't we serve an awesome God! I just love that! He calls us to be patient and wait on Him, but when we do-goodness there's nothing better in life to do. That's awesome that He showed you your calling. I wish you the best of luck as you continue to serve Him.
