My wife, Jodi, and I went down to work with Pastor Andy and the group at Church on the Street this morning. Jodi and I got to the park early this morning to see if Pastor Andy and crew were there yet. As we walked, Jodi and I knew that we were not a welcome sight. The drug dealers were still in the park doing their morning business.
Since we didn’t see Pastor Andy and crew yet, we headed over to the office to catch up with them. By the time we got back to the park, maybe ten or fifteen minutes later, the dealers were gone. They know what time Saturday on the Streets begins.
Not only does Church on the Street serve the homeless in the area, they also tend to make the park a very uncomfortable place for dealers to do business. When God moves in, the dealers move out.
