MOBILE, Ala. (BP)--They left the University of Mobile at 11:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning dressed in matching polos and jeans. They arrived back at the campus at 6 a.m. Monday morning, exhausted, covered in diesel fuel, and sobered by a brush with death. One group member described it as "a day I'll never forget."

MOBILE, Ala. (BP)--A convoy of cars leaves the warmth of the campus of the University of Mobile each Wednesday night, filled with college students who embark on a journey to face a cold night, some cold stares, some warm hearts, and very hungry souls. These UM students, equipped with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Kool-aid, coats, blankets, smiles and the love of God, walk the streets of downtown Mobile to share the love of Jesus Christ with area homeless men and women.
