It’s Monday morning, and I’m still basking in the amazing events I had the chance to witness this past Saturday. A friend of mine, David Lacy had learned about a woman named Mrs. Woods who had such a heartbreaking story including losing her husband 4 years ago in an accident, being unable to work due to her own injuries, and trying to care for not only her own children, but also those of her siblings while they work. To help out, her mother moved in their small home in Kilmarnock, VA where Mrs. Woods sleeps in a chair each night, having given up her own bed for her mother to sleep in.
The response of about 60 people from our church was to take on the challenge of building an additional bedroom for the Woods family….in one day. What a phenomenal blessing to watch God’s people do God’s work for God’s glory!
