Pastor Bobby teaches that if Christ is in you, you are a lot stronger than you think, with his message: “Becoming Anti-Fragile.”
Our interview guest is Rev. Andy Bales, the CEO of Union Rescue Mission in LA. His life’s work is to serve his “friends experiencing homelessness,” while working to eradicate the epidemic of homelessness in the LA county. Several years ago, he contracted an aggressive infection while working on Skid Row, a main congregating point for LA’s homeless population. The infection took his leg. Nine weeks later, he was back out on Skid Row working with the people. For more information on Union Rescue Mission and their current projects, please visit https://urm.org/.
