Perry's Place Encounter: Scotty

We took a scenic route to my parents' house yesterday afternoon. We weren't looking at anything but we were looking for someone. Someone to bless with a warm sweater and a bit of conversation. We found Scotty, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps who would gladly sign up for another season of combat if he weren't too old. He was grateful for the sweater and the brief chat.

I didn't have time to ask Scotty many questions before the light turned green. I don't know why he's living on the streets, but I did find out he's a Christian and going to church regularly. Please pray for God to continue to work in Scotty's life for His glory.

Thanks and God bless!
