Every Friday night our street outreach team parks an RV on the same spot on Madison Avenue. A group of volunteers stay in the RV to pray and welcome women looking for sanctuary from the street, while Breakthrough staffer, Brenda Williams and her crew walk the streets to meet the women who are hustling. Last Friday Brenda drove our new RV to the usual spot, but this time there were two cars parked in the spot where she usually parks. She parked closer to the corner and told one of the guys to move the RV up to its usual spot when the cars moved. The night went on and several cars came and left, but they were never able to move the RV. You can imagine their shock when a car careened wildly across the street and smashed head on into the cars parked at the spot where the RV, filled with volunteers and women, would otherwise have been. Call it coincidence if you'd like, but I'm adding it to the list of Breakthrough miracles.
