Crazy Day

Today was by far the most productive and busy day I've had while I've been at GCBI. This morning at 8 am I met a homeless man who was in need of help. He had left Colorado Springs, Colorado to come see his girlfriend in Sebring. A long story short, he ended up getting kicked out of her house, so he had been homeless for two days. He needed a ride to Tampa Bay so he could pick up his check from Burger King. Once he cashed the check he would get a bus-ride to his home town(Colorado Springs, Colorado). I told him that I had other obligations and that I would meet up with him at around 6 pm. I then went to Billy's house and pulled bushes for him. I finished at 9:30 am then went to work at the Campaign for Florida. I started at 10 am and finished at about 3:30 pm. After work I came back, got cleaned up, and took the homeless man(Sam) to Taco Bell. When I sat down he kept asking me if I'd take him to Tampa. At first I told him no, but then I felt like God wanted me to do it. In short I took him. The whole deal ended up well. Obviously God had been working in his heart already and he was willing to get right with God. We had good spiritual conversation and I was able to encourage him. He did end up getting his check and even payed me for my gas. I didn't get back into town until 10:30 pm. On the way back to the institute I stopped by Billy's house again, and we watched Facing the Giants. Now I'm back and ready to go to bed. It's been a good day, and I thank God that He allowed me to do some work for Him.

Gary, I am seriously amazed at all the awesome things God is doing through you! It's so neat how you're doing these little (yet big) things on your own. Alright, well I have my latest post up if you are able to read it. Oh and by the way, I want to hear you play your new guitar.
