This is Matt. Matt and I had breakfast together today on a street corner in Tempe. Matt is from Illinois and moved to Arizona about 7 years ago. He came here to be with his sister, but sadly she passed away of an overdose just 3 months after he arrived. He has two kids that he lost custody of, a boy and a girl that he loves dearly. Matt doesn’t have any contact with them unfortunately because of his situation, but he says he misses them very much. Matt was a very clean guy and also very intelligent, I enjoyed the conversation we had together. He wants to Find a job but said it’s difficult because he doesn’t have a permanent location to live. In this picture you can see Matt holding a brown bag filled with different hygiene products and inspiring bible verses that some my wonderful family members made for me to pass out. The cross on the front of each bag was colored by my little cousin Bella and it says “made with love” I ask we pray for Matt, so that he can get back on his feet and hopefully one day get back in his children’s lives.
