Why Mattias Ekkert is Sleeping Outside

As a youth pastor, I interact with high school students on a weekly basis. I get to walk through life with them and see the things that they struggle with. I can't imagine what it must be like for them to deal with those pressures on top of trying to provide for basic needs like food or having a safe place to sleep. If sleeping outside for one night can make a meaningful difference in the life of one young person, I'm happy to do it year after year.
