What's going on? Chance meetings with the same people over and over again!

Paul didn't need his notebook to remind him about two members of the street community that he first met on a train. He kept bumping into them!

Paul picks up the story.

Having met four characters on a train, one of whom, B, I prayed with, I met B and T again a few days later close to where we live. In addition, I met them again in Bolton town centre. By now they were saying that something was definitely ‘going on’.

Last weekend we had our Jubilee Party at church. Some members were out encouraging passers-by to come in. A small group explained that they were homeless and the mention of food drew them into the church. Amongst this group were B and T! The church had already been praying for them, and B & T were even more amazed that our paths had crossed yet again.

The relationship with them has grown very quickly and we hope that this will continue.
