On the 17th July I made some sandwiches and bought a variety pack of crisps. My prior research sent me to Kings Coss and Euston road in London with the aim of feeding 10 homeless people. A few close friends accompanied me but we found no-one in Kings Cross or Euston Road. Maybe we were just looking in the wrong places. So we drove to the west end and from Oxford street to Tottenham Court road we fed 7 people. I didnt make my target but I didnt give up.
On the 26th July I made my second trip to feed the homeless. One close friend of mine accompanied me. This time the menu was a bit fuller and my confidence in finding more homeless people even greater. On the menu was:
- Cheese and ham sandwiches
- Custard cream buscuits
- Orange juice
I have made that journey twice more since then, feeding more people each time and getting to know the same homeless people more and more each time. Having longer conversations with them and learning more about them and their lives. Tonight (22nd August 2010) for the first time I went alone and for the first time I did not see Tommy or Jerry which worries me. It was raining so maybe they have found a shelter for the night, which is what I was told by an eastern European homeless guy by St. Pauls Cathedral. I will pray for them tonight and with God's grace I will meet them again soon.
