Paul meets up face to face with a contact first met online...

Members of the homeless community often have access to social media and Paul took advantage of that over lock down.

Paul tells us about an encounter that started online.

I met J in Manchester recently for the first time, but it was as though we had known each other for years.

During lock down I started a social media account which is for people I meet when I am out on the streets. I must have come up as a friend suggestion on J's account and I saw that we had several mutual friends. It was evident that J was leading a life that was similar to those of people I meet in Manchester. I recognised J from her picture and approached her.

It was encouraging to hear from J on this first public encounter that her life was going in the right direction. I was able to say that I would be praying for her.
