Officially a Street Pastor!!!

Swindon Street Pastors get commissioned!

 

As I wrote last week, the Swindon Street Pastors were officially commissioned last Friday – here’s a piccie from the event.  For those of you that don’t know me, I’m one of the thin ones!!! (Not)

Maybe it was because we went out with a renewed sense of purpose and vigour, (not to mention liberal doses of the Holy Spirit as it was Pentecost weekend) but we had quite the most intense and challenging session I have yet encountered on Saturday night.  A few successes, but a couple of very sad encounters that just left us all frustrated by how little we can really do on occasions and also very cross about the limited ermergency provisions in the area for vulnerable youngsters.  We just keep praying that we do more good than not being there at all and make some small difference in people’s lives.  Good news is that we already have about half a dozen volunteers lined up to start training in September this year and our goal is to have 50 SP’s by mid 2009.
