The past couple of months mama and I have been getting up early and going to the Path. The Path is a shelter for the homeless with facilities for both men and women. Recently, Ed & Darla, blogging friends asked how it was going.
We arrive at about 8AM. We meet with staff briefly and then take Path residents, men & women, job hunting! We are not enablers! We do not go in with them, we are transportation volunteers. As soon as we loaded up, today we had three, mama prays out loud for us as I drive. Bill one of the residents thanked mama for praying and thanked me for not closing my eyes and bowing my head! :o) We drove a total of 90 miles today. Today was a mixed blessing day.
We had to get Sean to an assisted Living Facility between 9AM and 10AM for an interview he had lined up yesterday. He was excited but very nervous, they need a cook and that was his background. While Sean was in having his interview the rest of us waited, and prayed. Bill, Tom & I sat on a bench outside of the Assisted Living facility and talked while waiting for Sean. We talked about Tom being delivered from smoking and his recent total commitment to Jesus.
After about 30 minutes Sean came out excited. His interview he felt went well. The lady manager was pleased with his honesty, he openly admitted that he had felony convictions on his record and that he had a history of drug use. She said that was not necessarily a problem. She would present that to the board tonight - so pray for Sean.
Tom has heavy equipment maintenance background so we checked several places for him. Bill has a background in construction so we checked a few places for him. The job market is slow so pray for these individuals.
Next Friday is our last day to volunteer. We head back to Michigan soon after that. So pray for the Path and the residents.
God bless! Mama & Papa
