I went out on the streets with Special Agent J from Restoring Hope Ministries last night. This is the second time in two weeks that I have followed SAJ. I am blown away by all the new faces I am encountering. We are finding people in areas of town I have not seen homeless before.
A few evenings ago, I was out on a quick errand at a place near my neighborhood, and I encountered a man with a buggy. I have seen homeless in my part of town before, but not in a very long time. He told me of two spots where he stays.
Lubbock is saturated with homeless beyond what I have imagined – and I have been looking out for them for five years!
