‘Welcome To Woolloomooloo’ – Length 5:35

Ken is the heart and soul of the Hope Street Mission in Woolloomooloo. Besides being a Baptist Church pastor he runs the Back Shed café where all sorts pop in. He gives us some raw insights into Australia’s most densely populated outpost for the lost and homeless.

“I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfill our destiny, but our fate is sealed.”
