I huddled under the blanket two kind strangers brought for me along with a coffee and sandwiches. I was very grateful to them. They stayed and chatted with me for a while. They asked me questions about myself and then talked about God. I listened and before they left, they promised that they would return to check on me. They left a pocket-sized Bible. Their visit encouraged me.
It’s been a year now since I lost my job and was evicted. I went to a shelter but left and came here where I feel safer. I reach for the Bible.
