“Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,” – 1 Timothy 1:9

Today after worship, myself, Pastor Dewayne from Apostolic Church of Littleton, and brother Nicholas met up and went to huge Platte River Drive & Dartmouth homeless camp. This is the same camp is where a few days ago a young 32yr old homeless man named Joe was stabbed to death at the intersection of Dartmouth & Platte River Drive a mere few hundred yards from this enormous sprawling homeless camp.

I am at a loss for words about how absolutely lawless, filthy, drug infested, and dangerous this homeless camp has become over the last 2 years. There are men walking around with baseball bats as they wander camp to camp socializing. The woman of the camp were hidden away in tents or inside run down old campers and RV’s. Rotten old food covered in flies was sitting everywhere. Booze bottles, marijuana containers everywhere, needles, huge endless piles of bicycles and bicycle parts everywhere, mountains of trash with no rhyme or reason…we handed out bottles of fresh water and copies of the Gospel of John. Most of the homeless demanded multiples bottles of water but refused the small Gospel of John pocket book. A few groups allowed us to pray for them while many just ignored our presence altogether and never left their tents, campers, or RV’s to acknowledge our visit.

It is obvious that the people here are scared. It is also obvious that sin has grown and conceived a community that demonstrates in broad view the high cost of low living. The common refrain is the homeless here are sick and tired of having their stuff stolen and everyone knows who the murderers are but nobody is talking clearly because of fear and loyalty amongst themselves. Imagine that…living amongst thieves and murderers but too afraid to do anything about it.

The bible verse from Apostle Paul to Timothy is relevant to this field report. The homeless at these camps typically have long list of criminal offenses, addictions to all sorts, and outstanding criminal arrest warrants so obviously these folks avoid the police and sheriff deputies…but Paul taught Timothy that the laws of God and the laws of the earthly kingdoms are there for a reason…to lead people to God or at the very least to show the unruly, unrepentant, lawless, and unrighteous people that they are a sinner heading for judgement. We need laws and we need law enforcement, otherwise the drug use, drunkeness, lawlessness, assaults, thefts, and murder we are seeing in this homeless camp will inevitably spread like cancer to the entire community.

Please pray for the Englewood Police Department and Chief Collins that they find the murderers of that young man. Please also pray that our Englewood Police figure out how to shut down the meth and heroin sales which are a major cause of the terrible crime and homelessness we are seeing.

God will get involved if we as a community of christians ask him to, will you ask him? – dutch

One important issue is that when you find yourself searching for a education loan you may find that you will need a cosigner. There are many situations where this is true because you may find that you do not use a past credit history so the financial institution will require that you have someone cosign the credit for you. Thanks for your post.
