The last time I was here was seven years ago. There are areas of redevelopment that is much needed. The homeless seem to be everywhere. Those afflicted with drugs are obvious. The mental illness can be seen in crazy talk on the streets. A brief encounter with a restaurant manager confirmed that our work for children is needed here.
I am praying for a leader and a church that wants to reach out to the poor children so in time the city may be changed. We are instructed by the Word. "Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others." Who will rise up with us for the children here?
