God will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped his people and continue to help them (Hebrews 6:10).
During the recent hurricane and its aftermath, I personally witnessed some of the most selfless and loving acts imaginable. In the hours before the hurricane, many of our staff left family and homes behind, unsure if they would ever see either again, to ride out the storm here at the facility. Even as they were concerned about the well-being of their own families and property, these dedicated men and women, with a sense of duty, sacrificially cared for those who could not care for themselves.
In the days following the devastation, unable to leave, and some not even able to get in contact with family, our awesome staff slept on the floor, took baby wipe or bucket baths and worked long hours. They did whatever they had to do to keep our elders be comfortable, protected, well fed and cared for.
Even now, almost two weeks after the storm, many of our staff still have no power at home and most are in the midst of a long road to recovery and rebuilding of their lives. Yet, these dedicated servants still faithfully come to work each day with a smile on their face, encourage and support each other, and care with love, encouragement and support.
To each one I say, “Well done! It is truly humbling and a great honor to serve with you!”
