We love San Francisco. We love the San Francisco Giants. HOWEVER, earlier this year, we had very special visitors that came to serve at City Impact: eight St. Louis Cardinals players (Shane Robinson, Adam Wainwright, Matt Carpenter, Lance Burkman, Matt Holiday, Skip Schumacher, Jake Westbrook). They joined us for a day of serving the school students and residents in the TL.
We had the privilege of taking these men into the buildings to have lunch with residents, share Scriptures and pray with people. There is something cool about the Tenderloin; it is a level playing field. Multi-millionaires with fame and influence are immediately drawn toward humility as they are in a place where few people recognize them and where their influence and money cannot solve the problems at hand.
It was such a rich time of God's presence, miraculous stories, and mutual faith building. These guys are the real deal! This day was one of the great highlights of 2012. So with that said, City Impact is TORN! Is it bad to want both teams to win?
PS- Thank you Francis for bringing your friends to serve. We equally want your friends that are Giants to come serve too! =)
