Pray for David A

David came by the church this afternoon. He was walking, and had quite a story to tell. I simply listened. He said his wife and her sister had been killed by a drunk driver in January, and he was having a hard time of it.

He made a good choice in refusing to be sexually seduceed by one of his wifes friends living in Red Bluff, but now he was stuck here. I told him he'd done the right thing, and our church would be willing to help him get back to Michigan, where his daughters were and where he has a small business. Bus fare is $230, but that's why we have community services money...to help people in need.

He said he didn't want charity...and that listening was enough. I gave him a little of the food that was in the frig down stairs, and a couple large glasses of ice water.

We had prayer and then I gave him $20 and took him to the bus station. He said he'd be O.K.

I don't know if he was scamming me, and that really doesn't matter if he was.

Pray for his journey...and for him to make it home...where ever that may be.
