February 2-3, 2015: His Provisions

By February 19, 2015Uncategorized

…Stacey yet again, dropped us back off at Raising Cain’s where we began to walk. They were and are such a blessing to us. Today’s walk ended up in Garland, a suburb in Dallas. It was difficult finding a place to stay for the night because we were in a populated area where people could maybe see us as some crazy homeless people trying to find a spot to lay our heads. (It’s a little harder to find a place when you’re in a city). So, it took us a while for something to work out, but it worked out in God’s timing. In downtown Garland there was a church called Life Well, which was empty when we got there, so we decided to go to the Pub right across the street. It was towards the evening and we were a little concerned of where we were going to stay, but God always reminds us of his provisions and that he always provides even if we did have to sleep outside for the night. He is faithful till the end, God always sustains no matter what. We waited at the pub where we met the owner who treated us to a free burger. Apparently the pub just opened about month before we got there and the food was good! Eventually someone at the bar told us that they saw some people go into the church. Turns out the church were starting their worship practice set and after going out and talking to them they texted the pastor to come meet us, who happened to live on the floor right above the church! The pastor, Daryl, met us and invited us inside to stay for the night! So we laid out our sleeping mats and slept on the ground…

…Daryl in the morning took us out to breakfast and gave us a few books to take along the journey. He imparted some great and Godly wisdom before we left. It was an honor meeting him. We walked and found a little motel for a reasonable price. It had wifi that was good enough to be able to work on the blog. Along the way we were able to minister to a homeless lady who had some addictions and an abusive past. She did not respond to following Christ at that moment but I believe a seed of hope was planted. For the rest of the day we continued to work on the blog, a usual work day…
