The Homeless in Lakeland

A friend of mine passed along this article about a young man who has a life-calling to help the homeless.  His name is Brandt Russo and he’s sold all of his possessions and now lives in a school bus that runs on vegetable oil.  Well, this past week he heard about a group of homeless people in Lakeland, FL that were being neglected and he went down to help them out.  What ended up happening was a run-in with a local pastor at a church that’s been in the news recently, Ignited Church. It’s kind of sad to see two Christians’ interactions come to this, all over people God has called us to minister to – the down and out.  In my observation of this story, it’s sad and really both sides share the fault. Check it out and let me know what you think!
