When our church was going to minister and feed some homeless people.....Sam was the one we got to know the best.
Sam would get a few guys to wait on us to get there. They would help him to carry me in my manual wheelchair.....(like a princess).......up the 3 steps to get inside the old building in downtown Atlanta.
There was no way I could walk up those 3 steps back then....Thankfully I could climb them slowly nowadays.
My Pastor Carson Brown and his wife Sue (in the above pic) helped Sam to get back home. I blogged about it here in more detail in 2010.
Recently we Googled Sam's sister again since we had not heard from him in years. He still lives next to his sister and still goes to church! He has been back home for about 15 years now.
This was the kind of news that makes my heart smile......If Sam was the only one we helped to get off the streets, it was so worth it!
