It was the second time I have been to the Morningstar Mission in Joliet, IL. I previously worked there about a year ago. Saw some of the same faces as before, along with some new ones. Having familiarity with the people and surroundings can be a benefit.
This type of work requires me to both earn the trust of people while at the same time being "on-guard" just in case. For me, the tension that is felt trying to maintain this balance has always been good a good spot for me to work.
