Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of. ~Charles Spurgeon

We went out today to visit with our friends and they were gone.  We were sad but we totally trust God in this.  We prayed in the car that God would lead particular, my heart was praying for Gabby. We were led to more new friends in need and had a chance to talk with them for a bit. Another sad situation...husband and wife on the streets. She was very protective of herself and stuff. Very little eye contact. It was evident she has had a hard past. She had some understanding about Christianity.  She has encountered some weird "god stuff" on the streets with others sharing and wanting to force things on them.  She did not want us to pray with them because of some "scary" expierences in the past but she did ask us to pray for them when we go home.  It was a great opportunity to share about the true Christ, His love for us, and the freedom He offers. It was really sad to see the way this lady viewed herself...almost unlovable.
Then it was a miracle what happened next. We started once again driving aimlessly around and we happen to see Curtis walking across the street and this was not a street that was close to where we had met him in the first place. I do not believe in coincidences or accidents! God is sovereign in EVERYTHING!  Curtis informed us that Gabby had a warrant out for her arrest and she was now in jail.  John too was arrested. Please pray. My friend and I are going to try to visit Gabby in jail this week. I do believe with all of my heart the Lord has lead us to her, just not sure why yet?  I just know that I want her to feel cared for  and most importantly that Christ cares! Please please pray if you are reading this!
