The three photos I have shared today show how we work best together, as a team. The old expression that reads “It takes a village” is really true, it takes a village, or in our case “a dedicated group of volunteers”.
We are so fortunate to have a great core group of volunteers that are willing to give of their time and energy to make things happen. I am very proud of volunteers and am always amazed at what they are willing to do and give to make things happen when we need spring into action.
This past year as we made our bi-weekly trips to Southwest Louisiana, we became very efficient at 5 a.m. roll calls, driving 3 hours, setting up, cooking and serving 800 to 1000 meals by 1 p.m. That was quickly followed by tear down, clean up, load up and drive back home and arrive by 7 p.m.
What a crew! No complaints, just people looking to serve. I cannot say enough about the volunteers that we have. The volunteers at this church in Sulphur Louisiana were incredible also. Most of the men and women of this church had received damage to their own homes or businesses. Yet they were here serving their community. I love the dedication to the work and the desire to serve!
Now, as we approach hurricane season this year, my hope and prayers are for a slow hurricane season. One that will see most major storm turn northeast into the Atlantic and spare us. But I realize that will probably not be the case. So with that said, we are beginning to prep equipment and organize supplies to make sure that we can meet the need when it comes.
