BREATHE is a Wichita group yearning to bring ourselves and others closer to God. Please be inspired by these modern day “Acts” and let's go out and live our faith today!!! We’d love to hear your stories!
This is the story of one of the members of Breathe:
“We stopped for gas in an area of town with drug dealers and prostitutes on every corner. I was with a coworker on a business trip. He was filling the car and I was standing outside next to him. A Short, tan-skinned man in a faded ball cap and dried snot from his nose to his mouth approached.
“Hey man, could you spare some money?”
My heart was beating, i was suddenly being engaged by this dangerous world that was usually on the other side of the car window.
“I will buy you food but I won’t give you money.”
Without a beat of an eyelash he accepted. We walked over to the McDonald's.
“What’s your name?” I asked.
“Nice to meet you. I’m Ross.” He looked at me, smiled and nodded. He told me he was a roofer and that his boss had not called him for work in a couple weeks. I bought him super value meal #2 and asked him, “Are you good, man?”
“Yeah, I got my hamburger comin, and my fries. Yeah, I’m good. Thanks, man.”
“Alright. God bless you, Donald.”
I hustled over to my coworker, who was waiting in the parking lot with the doors locked. I hopped in. I said, “Let me in, I’m not a bad guy.”
He opened the door and said, “Ross, you’re a pretty good guy.”
If you are hungry, i want to feed you. But who knows, maybe that wasn’t for the physically hungry man, perhaps it was for the spiritually hungry- those who watched me do it.
God, use me!”
