God introduced my wife and I to this ministry in 2011, and it has been one of our greatest privileges to watch Him at work as He faithfully pursues His children—all of them, whether the residents of the neighborhood, the staff, the volunteers, the partners of PSM, or those just passing through—to bless them, to care for them, and to bring them one day to His eternal home. We cannot wait to see what new plans He has in store for His children! The experience has enriched our lives and our understanding of how much He wants to be with us. As is often repeated at Parker Street, “The word became flesh and moved into our neighborhood.” There is so much to say; if you have any questions or want more information, we would be glad to talk to you. If you would like to be more involved, there are countless opportunities. Thank you for loving your neighbors!
