We met with our Firewood Ministry Coordinator last week and he shared with us the following stories:
- An uninsured couple in east Linn County had experienced some major surgeries leaving them financially bereft. When David pulled up with his dump truck full of wood they asked, “How much of that is mine?” When he replied, “All of it” the tears flowed.
- An elderly gentleman recovering from open heart surgery eagerly helped David unload and stack by carrying one log at a time
- Up in the Canyon area there are two couples in their late 60’s living on a piece of land. One couple is in an older trailer and the other in a shed with little insulation. David was able to deliver two double loads to them this year.
Altogether our firewood ministry was able to help 40 families stay warm this winter. Thank you Lord for allowing us to warm bodies as you warm their hearts.
