Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Some sort of record?

Brother Dave & I parked the car in White Center, took about 10 steps on the sidewalk, if that.

"HEYYY! Are you ministers?" a woman asked. "Would you pray for me?" Sure.

She starts yelling at her friends, loitering outside a tavern. "Come over here, you need prayer!" One guy joined us, she kept yelling. "We need all the prayer we can get, come on," but there were no more takers. So we held hands, the four of us, and asked for God's strength and grace and healing.

It had to be some sort of a record for Operation Nightwatch -- 10 seconds from parking the car to responding to someone on the street.

I'm gonna need a stopwatch from now on.
