Sacramento Group

This is the group of ‘Harvey Helpers’ that came all the way from Sacramento California!
 
What does it take for a group of folks from Sacrament, Ca. to come to Beaumont, TX?   I got a chance to visit with a few of them on Tuesday and was humbled by their willingness to do what it takes to help people they have never even met! Things like,  getting to the airport by 4:00AM (yep, that would be pretty early in the morning!), stand in a security line to get checked in -   one person was even ‘selected’ to be securitized more closely, shoes, luggage, the whole 9 yards - for a flight that left at 6am.  And, the return trip? More of the same, just worse hours! Some are talking about spending the night in the airport instead of having to get up, get packed, ready to go and be there by 2AM! 
And what are they getting to do while they are here?  Not relax by a pool and have good Cajun meals, nope, they get to ‘muck out’ houses full of wet sheetrock, carpet and wood!  But most of all, they give us all hope and a sense of being cared for.  What a gift!
 
One of my favorite songs goes like this, “yes they’ll know we are Christians by our love.” And we know these folks are!
