Covered in Love

One night while showing mom around the city. We saw several homeless people sleeping on the streets. Wanting to help them mom got the idea that maybe we could buy blankets and distribute them at night to the people on the streets. So the other day we bought ten blankets. Last night was our mission of mercy. We went to the market, one of the worst parts of the city at about 8:30 or 9 at night. It was incredible. In the picture is a drunk man passed out on the street. We covered him with a blanket and gave him a bag of fruit along with a gospel tract. It was so sad. We pulled up to one corner where there were about 12 to 15 people all living together on the street. I rolled down my window and starting handing out bags of fruit and tracts. They jumped at my window like wolves grabbing for the bags. It kinda scared me, I didn´t want to start a riot. One man even followed our car to the next intersection begging for something to eat. It was so pitiful. God protected us and we were able to pass out all the fruit, tracts and blankets.
