99 For 1

99 For 1 "99 for 1" is about valuing the "1" who is often overlooked or forgotten. When Jesus was confronted by religious people for spending time with outcasts, he told the story of a good shepherd who is willing to leave 99 safe sheep to find the lost one.

99 for more. When you go for 1, you usually realize the 1 has friends who are also lost.

"I hope the greatest message I ever deliver is the one I live, not simply a cleverly crafted talk for a stage."

We never cease the quest for lost sheep when God puts one on our heart. Lives are always worth the risk! #99for1

Met a young lady selling herself on the streets this week. We asked her if she wanted out and she said “yes!!” We took her the airport, purchased her a plane ticket and 2 on our team sat with her for 6 hours until her flight was due to depart. We had someone lined up in Virginia from NoVa Human Trafficking initiative to pick her and provide a safe home to recover in. We saw her head through security and were so thrilled to have helped Alessandria get off the streets. Something happened. Her internal battle to leave this way of life was strong and the lure of those who hold
power over her life too strong. She left before her flight took off and went right back to her handler. Everyone we meet is another person’s son, daughter, sister, cousin.... They have value and are worth pursuing and loving. Even if they are not yet healthy enough to take the hand that is extended to help, we return to offer it again. #99for1

99 for 1

We started this FB page in hopes of inspiring others to go after the “1”, leaving the comfort of the “99.” The journey of looking for my homeless friend Ed has allowed me to meet so many wonderful people along the way. I have the privilege of meeting those who love and serve the homeless as well as the men, women and children who have no place to call home. It is my hope and intent to inspire others to pursue the “1.” To go after the lost and those who will never find their way home unless someone goes looking. Everyone we meet on the streets is another person’s Ed. They are someone’s daughter or son, brother or sister, niece or nephew, and they matter. We know that the journey pursuing them is not only a gift to those we seek to restore, but for those of us who dare go looking as well. I wish you well on your quest. Please share your journey on the page to inspire other sojourners. - God speed, Will Cravens
