I've arrived in the USA and already had my mind blown!
Today I was so blessed to spend the day with Pastor Scott Wagers who has got to be one of the most incredible people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. With his amazing Mercy Mobile to deliver essentials to those living in the camps, Pastor Scott and his volunteers showed me a side of Silicon Valley that shocked me to the core - amongst the shiny streets and billionaires there are thousands of people with no choice but to live like animals in the woods. Who knew!
It upset me to see notices warning of early morning sweeps where the government roll in to destroy the homes that people have been forced to create - they really have nowhere else to go. One woman had been camping in this area for four years. The homeless man in the picture with me and Pastor Scott is named Cowboy and he really wanted his picture taken with us! He was proud to show us the home he has created.
I can't even begin to imagine how difficult life is for the homeless here.
