    Ep 11: COVID Homeless (Special Edition)

    Ep 11: COVID Homeless (Special Edition)

    People were living their "normal" life and then a life-changing event happened. Loss of job, divorce, rape, etc. There are all kinds of reasons that put people on the street.  Well now we have another reason and it's called COVID. Right now we're averaging as many as 15-20 new people in this ministry per day, and many of them are female, and many of the females are on the street because of COVID.

    Ep 10: The day I learned to make rerolls

    Ep 10: The day I learned to make rerolls

    Life on the streets in ministry is different than any other ministry you could experience.  Part of our mission statement is that we reach the lost "where they are found"; under highways, deep in the woods, or along the street, we go to where they are and join them in their lives. Sometimes that means learning how to make reroll cigarettes while listening to their story and sharing the good news of Jesus in the process.

    Ep 8: Safe 363 days a year

    Susan, a long time WOTS homeless lady, and her "old man" have been together for a long time.  Her old man gets drunk on occasion, during those occasions he gets violent. She won't ever press chargers, because being safe with him 363 days a year is worth the 2 days of unrest.

    Ep 7: Guardian Angels

    Ep 7: Guardian Angels

    There are men that serve a special purpose in our ministry. They are homeless, but that is not their main concern. They concern themselves with the safety of Pastor Skip and our team every Sunday.  They come to our Sunday dinner, hang in the back, and keep watching for any would-be attempts of violence against our team. Mike was one of those guardian angels and he took his job very seriously.  The day before the recording of this episode we were informed that Mike was killed.  He was a drunk and dealt with many of life's issues, but he was a good man and loved Pastor Skip well.

    Ep 6: Cowboy & Nancy

    We came upon a camp in the woods that had major damage due to a recent storm. A tree had fallen on Nancy's lean-to.  With a few friends, some chainsaws, and a lot of hard work, our team was able to get her camp back in order. Weeks later we came upon her camp again, flattened to the ground by bulldozers. Here is her story.
