How I give TO THOSE ON THE STREET

CHRISTIAN LIVING IS AN ADVENTURE. It takes one through trials and tribulations, but in it all, God is with us—and I've seen how we're never thrown into a challenge that we cannot overcome. There have been a few challenges and tests in which I've been unsuccessful, but there are those I've overcome, and they stand out as reference points in my spiritual growth.

Every day in nearly every street of my city, Nairobi, I've been encountering beggars. Some sit with melancholy, seeking the attention of passersby. Some wait just outside the shopping areas to beg from shoppers. Some walk along the streets approaching any smartly dressed person. Some are half-drunk. Underlying all these examples is the request for money.
