I finally made it down to see Cody and Allison's house. It's about 100 years old and in an area of the city that has a reputation for being a high-crime area.
They chose to live there because that is where they want to do ministry. They want to live among the folks they minister to. I don't think they're sure yet of God's plan for them specifically - just that they feel like they are supposed to work with the urban poor.
So far it's going well. The neighborhood kids are beginning to hang out at Cody's while he's there working on the house. They are street-wise kids. When my dad and Cody were doing plumbing and talking about "doping the pipes" the kids thought they were talking about crack.
I think it's going to be good.
