The testimony in the book "23 Minutes in Hell" is an eyewitness account that haters feed on haters. The people that deride you today, will also turn and consume each other tomorrow. Thanks be to God for sending us Jesus, "The New Paradigm", who spread his arms out in love over the smart, know-it-all, prideful haters and said "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." Follow Christ to the Cross, break out of the old paradigm and embrace the New.

Since 2001, Kitty (photos from a visit in 2007) was a member of our homeless family living under Los Angeles bridges in the neighborhood of 1st and 3rd avenues near Union Station in downtown. A week ago, she last minute changed a weekend barbecue party she planned to cook for her homeless mates from Sunday evening to Saturday afternoon. Everyone had a great time. Sunday evening she fell asleep at 9:00 on a makeshift bed and died shortly thereafter. Over the years Kitty had bypass surgery a couple of times and was living homeless after each hospital stay. She leaves behind her best mate Anthony and close friends, Cici, Andrian, Carlos and Isabel. Please pray for Kitty and for her homeless family that she leaves behind.

“I was fired from a job when I was sixteen years old and was devastated. My entire personal worth was laid waste. My mother found me crying in my upstairs room. I told her what happened. She sat down on my bed and took me in her arms. ‘Fired? Fired!’ she laughed. ‘What the hell is that? Nothing. Tomorrow you’ll go looking for another job. That’s all.’ She dabbed at my tears with her handkerchief. ‘Remember, you were looking for a job when you found the one you just lost. So you’ll just be looking for a job one more time.’ She laughed at her wisdom and my youthful consternation. ‘And think about it, if you ever get fired again, the boss won’t be getting a cherry. You’ve been through it once and survived.’” Maya Angelou, Wouldn’t Take Nothing from My Journey, Random House, 1993, p. 80.
