This week I spent every day splitting fire wood with some of the best young boys and girls I think I have ever known. Everyone worked with purpose and drive knowing that if these people don’t have enough wood for the winter, they may not make it through. It is a life or death situation, I spoke to one resident who ran out of wood once and had to burn his furniture and kitchen cabinets. Another resident ran out in February and decided to ride out the rest of the winter in bed with 2 snow suits on and 3 blankets, and I heard other stories as well. By splitting and stacking wood for these kind elderly people we are showing God’s love in a way that they understand is life saving. At the end of work day, I am exhausted but I don’t mind much when I see the smiling faces and here their stories.
