I’ve known Alan Graham since the early days of Mobile Loaves & Fishes. Catholic Bytes has done a beautiful job telling his story in this video. He’s an incredible man with a graced understanding of the homeless and what God has called him to do with and for them.
Alan had it all, but changed his life completely with no experience in the area that God was calling him to go. Fortunately, God sent a helper and a big dose of humility. Grace allowed him to see that his help was in the form of someone much lower on the economic scale than he was. This person-with his lack of power, prestige, and wealth-was overflowing with understanding, compassion, and a fierce love that would change the world of many. Yes, one person can make a difference in the world, because they connect with other people in this world. It’s a beautiful thing.
