Homeless for the holidays

From article:


This summer, 24 people who were living in their cars in parking lots at Walmart or the Buffalo City Mall came to speak with David Klein, director of the Stutsman County Housing Authority, Klein said.

On Wednesday and Thursday, three homeless people visited with Jessica Dahlager, a case manager for the seriously mentally-ill homeless at South Central Human Service Center.

Lt. Teresa Brecto of the Salvation Army said she recently helped three people with money for gas and travel expenses so they could get to a city like Fargo or Bismarck with labor-ready employment.

These are the people many often think of when they think of the homeless — living on the streets with nowhere to go, Klein said.


“There are a lot of people that just happen to be one bad circumstance away from losing things,” Klein said.

A crisis could be a major car repair, a serious health care cost or simply having to decide whether to pay for utilities or food. Brecto said a crisis is considered anything out of the ordinary.

Between August 2010 and August 2011, Dahlager saw the number of people who came to her for assistance increase by 200 to 300 percent.

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

there are a great many people in these tent cities, and it will get worse. no jobs, means no place t olive, if your unemployment has run out. and food stamps ae cut off too. now the elderly, can't get food stamps for long, that is sad, they should just give them to them.

The battle has never changed from the beginning. It is "the seed of the serpent against the seed of the woman.” The battle is over truth, but not political truth, it is over eternal truth. Unfortunately, most people are unaware of this even though their Bible tells them that they “wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of the world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Eph. 6:12
