Seven and a half gallons of donated Starbucks coffee, 13 eager people, and the beautiful city of Philadelphia. It started with orders to take our coffee and leave Love Park, early Thursday morning. But "the man" couldn't hold us back. Our small table and containers of coffee were respectfully set up next to the street at the intersection of JFK Boulevard and 15th Street, conveniently located directly outside the park.
"In Philly, we met a woman named Ms. Garrison. I asked her if she wanted some free coffee and noticed that she had stitches along her left elbow. This started a discussion about how she obtained her injury. I soon discovered that she was a pleasant woman and a believer in Christ. I ended up being able to pray for her, and her elbow, and she was greatly appreciative. At that time there was an event taking place in Love Park. A woman working with the event asked us if we wanted to join a free raffle for an ipod shuffle. So we thought, "Why not?" and grabbed a ticket. Suprisingly enough, Ms. Garrison won the ipod shuffle. This was definitely a testimony of God's goodness. This displayed how God cares for even the small things in our lives. It was a blessing to see this woman give praise to God. It was exciting to build a relationship with this woman who I will be able to continue to see every Saturday." -Mario M
