KOH2RVA: Day 111

Have you seen this video? I love the way these First Baptist members bring heaven to earth by delivering Meals on Wheels. I’ve been with them once, and it really does make a difference to the people who receive these meals. They not only get a hot, nutritious meal, they get a friendly greeting, a handshake or hug, and often a “God bless you,” on the way out. Think about how much that improves the quality of life for each one.

My parents have been on the receiving end of this service when they were living in Summerville, South Carolina, and I remember what a huge difference it made for them. I’m going to try to bring a little bit of heaven to earth today by visiting them in Franklin, West Virginia, where they live now. Maybe I’ll ask them if they remember Meals on Wheels, and when I do I will be grateful all over again for these First Baptist “missionaries,” and the way they are bringing the KOH2RVA.

One thought on “KOH2RVA: Day 111

  1. Meals on Wheels is a wonderful service for those who can no longer manage that part of their lives — much like our Shepherd Center Personal Services that we provide for older folks e.g. grocery shopping or taking them to the store or pharmacy or doctors’ appointments when one can no longer drive. As one of our former presidents put it “Ole geezers helping other ole geezers to be independent as long as possible” — Through personal services and handyman chores, as well as intellectual & social stimulation through the Open University, Shepherd Center volunteers make a real difference in many older folks’ lives. Some of our FBC folks are active volunteers and making a KOH2RVA difference for many who need them.
