“He served our country. He is a veteran. He is disabled. And he is homeless. He has been living on the streets. The shelters won’t take him in because he can’t care for himself. He is hurt. He is without hope. His name is Gene.
We had the honor to pray with him today. To ask him about his life. To hear the hopelessness in his voice was heartbreaking. Since this picture Julianna has visited Gene daily. He calls her ‘my little buddy’ and looks forward to seeing her and has asked to come to church with us. Hope is coming back into his voice. The power of kindness and love to a stranger is being lived out before our very eyes.”
