2013 Sleepout Recap

Sleeping in the cold

Shock, awe, frustration, inspiration, bitter cold, compassion. These were all feelings that people from our Sleepout came away on Friday and Saturday, February 22nd and 23rd. Between the relay races, impactful testimonies, informative seminars, rock hard sleeping surface, and inspiring service projects, each participant was challenged and encouraged to spend themselves in behalf of the poor. One woman noted that she felt ‘mad’ throughout the night because she could remember being homeless and what how hard that life was. She vowed to make positive choices so she would never have to live like that again. Others were shocked at how much the homeless have to wait, and really connected with the sense of purposelessness that many of the homeless feel every day.
