Care Like Jesus

Marcy is a young mom who often attends 71Five Parents. She offered to make a side dish to go with one of our weekly dinners and it was delicious. Feeling grateful, I wrote a little note thanking her for what she had done in making food to share with everyone. The next day she said, “When I read the card, I began to cry.” Mary shared that the card meant so much to her that she taped it to her wall so she could see it every day. Many of the youth we meet have had few adults in their life that have shown consistent care and love to them. Marcy has received so few words of affirmation that what I wrote as a sincere thank you, was a treasured symbol of love from someone who genuinely cares and values her.
Thank you for the impact you are having on Marcy, her child’s life, and all the young people in our area by caring for others like Jesus.
