Thursday update — September 28, 2017.
The following update was sent to our national disaster relief leader today...
One of the gals, Carmen, on our food team (Rosharon) has made a connection with a family of eleven, all Buddhists. While we were out distributing food and cots Tuesday night, she passed by their home, but they weren’t there. She left the food and the cots and went to the next house.
When we all got done that night, we gathered at the Rosharon Church, loaded up a few cots that were left in the big truck and she left to deliver them to a house down the street from her ‘friends.’ When they saw her, they came running out to the van and explained that for them, coming home and seeing the package was like Christmas. With tears streaming down their cheeks, the oldest woman just began to say, over and over, Jesu, Jesu, Jesu…
If there was ever a reason for us to do any of this, to go thru any of it, it’s for the cause of that moment of “seeing” for her and our teams!
