Our own personal challenge: YouTube Blog: 5 Questions for Mark Horvath, Founder of InvisiblePeople. tv


3) Is there one story that has particularly inspired you to keep doing what youre doing?Last year I met Angela, who is living under a bridge in Atlanta and she changed me. She is dying under that bridge…

When I asked what was being done to help her, the response I received was, “We bring her sandwiches.” Sandwiches are not enough. Up to that point I thought that people should do whatever they can do to help – even if it’s just baking cookies. After meeting Angela I realized people need housing, jobs and health services. So maybe your support level is just baking cookies. That’s fine. But don’t just randomly hand them out. Take your cookies to an organization that is providing housing, jobs and health services.

All the questions & answers are great information about the project that Mark has undertaken, but this one caught our attention!

You see, it is about smart action! That is what we want to promote thru our advocacy, education & collaboration efforts.

We have a very special story to tell thru our proposed event on World Homelessness Day on 10-10-10. We have written about the event several times on this blog, but we want to focus on an event that motivates Savannahians to have a more active part in the ministry to homeless people. Not to force Christianity on them but to let them know in all the ways that their service can entail that God loves them.

While the organizations that provide services to the homeless can look at the services they provide, let’s look at what we as Churches, organizations & individuals do ourselves to deal with the homelessness we might see or just might miss.

There are stories like that in Savannah too – maybe we’ll be able to gather them & let Savannah see their invisible people too!

Hopefully we can find & support all the agencies so that they can provide the much needed services that Mark alludes to in his interview.

So read all the interview questions, watch a few of the videos highlighted by YouTube today (including the one shown below that Mark references in this particular question) & learn more about how people become homeless, what their experiences are being homeless & how they struggle to get out of that condition that traps them in their daily lives.

You may also want to go to Mark’s site, support his efforts & learn even more from all the videos, interviews & content there – support Mark in his trek across America this Summer – he is already done with most of it but there is more to go before he gets back to LA.
