Mr.Willie Allen and his buddys wants to close down the Town & Country Inn, but where will over 100 homeless familes go to when they are out of work, and can't get a job due to a bad past record and Grace In Action is no more thanks to this negitive article. The goverernment? The City? Yea right. They are the reason for all the homelessness to start with.If anyone has any better solutions please let us know.
Mr. Willie Allen's name was not mentioned that stayed in room #202 in the article.He's the one who is behind this smear campain against the Peak Family and the Burnstiens. It's all over a woman that stayed with GIA he was seeing and Ms Peak gave her a choice. Willie or Jesus. She chose Jesus. Now he's mad and out to get Ms Penny Peak. Plus the Peaks would not support him trying to close down the hotel.He's made many threats against the Peaks and even hurrasising them daily.Where else can you stay for 3 months for free. I stopped by last week, before he moved. Willie Allen and Ms Linda Stephens and a few others were hanging out drinking, drunk and parting outside their rooms. They can't pay their rent but they can drink every day.Satan is the accuser of the breathern.
Wow! It's hard to believe Chattanooga has got to this bad. Mercy is Godly, not messy. The Hotel business can be messy when you are dealing with people with messed up lives. Then the press writes 3 page front page story on gossip, slander, and malishish lies and that can destroy everything the Peaks have worked for, for the past 8 years. They are people who are trying to do something in Chattanooga to help the homeless not close down another place for them to get help..This story is so one sided.They never mention the hundreds of success stories that have come and gone from Grace In Action. You make Grace in action out to be the fall guy for the problems and choices that the hotel is having with their staff and guest. Grace In Action and the hotel are two different entities with two different agendas.If any of you really care about the homeless, you try bringing home a homeless family to your home and assist them until they get back on their feet. The Peaks have done that dozens of times with much success.Plus they work jobs to take care of their own family plus run GIA to feed and assist the homeless.We've known them for about 2 years when my church started bringing food & ministering and feeding the families at the Town & Country. Many times I've just dropped by and the Peaks were grilling out burgers and dogs and ribs. The homeless at the Town & Country ate better than my own family. Then those who worked had a free furnished room, cable tv, wifi, phone, electric, water, food, clothing, toiletries, shoes, diapers, formula, school supplies, and even Christmas for their kids. Plus they would run the Peaks ragged every day running them to the doctors or to job & house hunting, or picking up supplies.The people who complained about the electric being turned off were not even in Grace In Action. They were guest and staff of the hotel that were evicted not GIA. The Peaks only have a hand full of supporters and churches who believed in what they were trying to do. They don't have Federal Funding or grants to help them do what they do. Many times they take funds from their own pockets to helps someone in need.None of us have any right to judge them unless we spend a day in their shoes.I know the Peaks are not perfect but who is now days. But they are at least trying to do something instead of pretending it doesn't exsist" Ye that is without sin shall cast the first stone."
