Following another busy but successful food distribution at West Houston Assistance Ministries, I took a moment with 8 National Guardsmen appointed to serve alongside us, to meet the growing need. I told them that they had represented the National Guard well, working incredibly hard in supporting our important work. Later in the day, Lisa Iparrea, Director of Client Services, and I met with their commanding officer, and I repeated my comments with the Captain. We talked about whether they might continue to serve at WHAM for a few more weeks. Thankfully, he is going to consider our request.
I created the following video capturing some of the incredible work the National Guard and our incredible team completed today:
The generous donations continue. Today, Samantha from Ascension Episcopal Church and her mom, Suzanne dropped off, 1.441 pounds of food! Samantha advertised on Nextdoor for donations, and they came in. Samantha was also able to raise much needed funds as well – thank you!!
Please continue to pray for us!
