Breakfast for the homeless

This morning at about 4:45 I went with Mr. Ed and Mrs. Beth, who are over the Compassion Ministry, to find and feed the homeless. We went to about 5 or 6 different spots and gave out sandwiches and hot coffee. Because of this outreach many of the homeless have been coming to church. They bus in about 50 0r 60 to church on Sunday morning. About five have accepted salvation. One died recently because of a bad storm and a sign fell down and killed him but he had accepted Christ a week prior. We went to some rough areas. Two different parks about two or three blocks apart is gang territory. Parque de la Libertad is one of the most dangerous places in San Salvador and I believe it is MS-13 territory and the other park is 18th St. territory. When we drove up the homeless all came up because they recognize the vehicle and they were all so very greatful. Mr. Ed sometimes has to go and wake them up. It is the only day that they are woken up in love and given some food. I am so honored to be able to share Jesus' love with la gente de la calle, the men of the street. "Every witnessing Christian must necessarily assume that his witness is needed because the destiny of the sinner he is talking to is not fixed and certain (Ezek. 3:17-21; 18:23-32).
