1,000 Year Flood

After our historic flood, I wanted to make sure our children understood what it meant to help others, even persons we didn’t know.  Through our child’s school teacher, she reached out to us stating she knew a couple who had just been displaced from their home via helicopter and a day later gave birth to their newborn son.  God used our teacher to ask us for help and this opportunity helped my children see that our efforts of gathering supplies, clean water, and infant clothes could truly help someone in the days following the flood.  God’s grace was shown through God’s people.  Our prayer is that this newborn child, whom we probably will never know, will sense God’s presence upon him in the days to come.
