12 Hours One Saturday

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!

  1. Thanks, Jerry! I just took a break from typing a letter to a young man that I had limited contact with back in the early 1990s. He really needed a Christian friend and when he saw my name on fb he connected.

    I was just telling him that ranting and raving Christians only give Jesus a bad name but that in I John the Bible says that ‘they will know we are Christians by our love’. What a blessed amen your blog was. Thanks, Jerry!
