5. Video featuring a a Santa Monica homeless man's dream.

I remember the words of one homeless man when I woke him up and I said, "What were you dreaming about?" He said, "Taking a shower, being somewhere else, eating food." These words broke my heart as he could not even find provision for his basic needs. Then he said, “Why do I have to be like this now?” I didn’t have an answer to his question. I can still hear his words echoing in my mind.

I hope that somehow my words will encourage you to prepare to share with the homeless. All this man possessed was his clothes gathered around him on the ground and a piece of cardboard for a bed.
This man and others in need like him are why we are in the streets and motivating churches to do the same. While I see homeless people everywhere, I see churches on every corner. I continue in prayer even now in hopes to know how to motivate more churches to reach out. It hurts when I think about all the needs there are in the streets and the mission assigned to us as Christians.

Matthew 25
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
