I've served on the Board at Union Mission Ministries for 14 years. I have worked at holiday food distributions, preached shelter's chapel services, etc. God has used the "Overpass" book to help me understand the heart of the homeless in a way that I never did before. God has used this book to equip me to love and serve the homeless as I have not been able to before. Last weekend I was traveling to Charleston,WV on a late cold night. I was going to make a quick pit stop at Hardee's. As I ran into the Hardees I noticed a small elderly man with his three stuffed Wall Mart bags sitting in the back booth. God would not allow me to walk past him. I got down on one knee and began to talk to him. I got him something to eat and gave him some money. I asked him if there was anything I could do for him. He said no and thanked me for stopping to talk. As I left he said, "God bless you son" . It was if those words were coming from God Himself. We have been talking about the "Under Pass" book at our Wednesday mornings prayer meetings at the Union Mission. The Exec Director said he is going to try to get you to speak at our wefeedpeople.com banquet. Hope you can come.
