You pray for someone and then bump into them, now is that chance?

When Paul WInter started Operation Joy one of the key elements was remembering the key dates that were important for the members of the street population that he had contact with.

Paul tells us of a recent encounter.

I became aware through social media that one of my contacts, J, had lost her partner and that the funeral was coming up on the following Friday. I had not seen J for seventeen months so I sent a private message saying that I would be thinking of her and praying for her over the coming days. Three days later I met J as she passing through Piccadilly Gardens! She was very grateful for the offer of prayer and I said I would be in touch soon to see how she was doing.

Surely no chance encounter.
