Robert Ayers III
Or just Bobby.
I met Bobby at the beginning of 2010 when he came to my community group on Capitol Hill. I’m not gonna lie I found this guy kind of strange at first but eventually he grew on me. I would see him on and off over the next few months around at Bauhaus or on occasion at community group. Eventually he started coming over to our house for parties and other various activities and began to hang out with the other roommates and I more.
Bobby is originally from Michigan but grew up in Utah. He moved to Kent, WA in September of 2010 and in January of 2012 moved into our house as he wanted to get involved more at mars hill and live in capitol hill since he was always hanging out here. Bobby currently works concierge at a local retirement home and is taking a couple classes at Seattle Central. He is fascinated by all forms of literature and strives to one day be a published writer.
It’s always encouraging to talk with Bobby because he more than anyone in the house can relate to my desire to want to write and share stories with people. I’m glad to have this guy living with us. He has definitely been a huge encouragement in pushing me to write more and get my stories out on paper. I’ve also truly enjoyed watching him grow over this past year. The Lord has really changed his heart in many ways. I’m stoked to see him continue to grow and be used here on Capitol Hill for the glory of Jesus whether it be through writing, going to school, or just simply living on the hill.
P.s. These photos were taken last Saturday around Capitol Hill in various places: Elliot bay books, Odd Fellows, Cal Anderson.
