PART 1 – I grew up in privilege yet ended up on the streets! How? Why? – Shared Moments with Justus

  1. Street People
    • Demographics
      • Children
        • You give them things
      • Women
        • You sympathize with them
      • Men
        • He comes to you smelling
  2. Demystify It
    • In this conversation, I will try to demystify the man’s view
    • Rejection
      • I know the rejection men go through
    • Plague Bearers
      • They did not fall from the sky
      • But, once on the street, society treats them like they are plague bearers
    • Government
      • The government does not feature you in its plans
    • Ills of being homeless
      • Lack of access to a dwelling
        • Lack of access to a dwelling means inability to get access to running water
        • In-access to running water means being unable to get clean
      • Lack of friendship and community
        • Newspaper stand
        • If a street person goes to a newspaper stand, people will vacate immediately
      • Lack of Association
        • They will judge the street-walker
          • He will be judged as not being able to read
          • He will be judged as being illiterate
      • Lack of work
    • Reasons for homelessness
      • Addictions
        • Alcohol
        • Drugs
      • Child Welfare System
        • About 85% of child welfare recipients do not have an exit plan
        • And, therefore the welfare recipients end up homeless
        • A child is rescued as a young child and taken through the system
        • It is not the child’s fault
        • They never receive a good education
        • Before they are eighteen they are sent away from the group home
          • The group home is only set for children under 18 years old
        • They have no Identification Card
          • What can you do in this country without an ID
          • Tell me what can you do?
          • You cannot even register your sim card
          • You cannot get a job without an ID
    • Need
      • Some of them are not walking up to you because they need a handout
      • Humanize
        • Some of them just want you to humanize them
        • He is a Child of God
        • What does it cost you to simply tell him “God Loves You

    • Through this story,I seek to speak to men(the young & not so young) who for various reasons and pain seem to believe a solution can be found in alcohol or drugs.
      If you know anyone in this situation…kindly forward to them.
      It may help them understand that alcohol & drugs only lead to IMMENSE PAIN & SUFFERING as evidenced by my story.
      But…God always has a WAY OUT.

    • My take home: The most vulnerable people are in church. Your guard is down and you are not suspicious of anyone. You can easily trust anyone who approaches you in church and start addressing them as brother and sister so and so
