Heads or Tails #14 – Mark

Skittles started a meme every Tuesday called Heads or Tails, basically she provides a word and we can interpret it however we like. This week it is Mark

I had difficulty with this one until I remember a person from my days in Fort St. John. This was about 24 years ago. This is a very simplified story.

Mark was a drunk, a homeless person, dirty, disheveled and unhappy. A man named Jim, a rough and ready biker had found him and prayed with him to become a Christian. It took a little while but slowly Mark changed, he completely turned his life around and now I understand he is a pastor working with homeless people in the far North. What God can do when we are willing is amazing.
