I am so disappointed. Homeless Issue #2 was sent a week ago. The home of Krystal Light Discipleship was stormed by Placerville police on Saturday. 10 or more police searched the whole house looking for drugs and contraband, none were found. I was made aware that one of our recipients of Homeless Issues informed zoning authorities about the home and the church that was to be used for assisting homeless persons. I mistakenly used the word “shelter” instead of assisting homeless persons.
I mistakenly thought that homelessness of our citizens was a problem that those receiving this newsletter were concerned for the “bottom run” of our citizens, and wanted to help. Those who do not want to help in this effort, just let me know and I will take you off of my list of helpful people.
Pastor Darryl met with the city and county people and is making adjustments and mutual understanding with both, so he may continue his great work..
We have to remember that our friends stay under the radar and attempt to be invisible. Calling attention to them and their plight only brings harassment. Homelessness will never go away. Placerville police have begun to visit the gathering places of our friends and they conduct the usual harassment techniques.
I do not condone breaking the law. We only ask for concern and compassion for those less fortunate then ourselves. Some of you have a faith base. Read Matthew 25:40. And for closet Atheist; Socrates, “What stirs your anger when done to you by others, that do not to others.”
We do have good news also and I will get into that in my next issue.
