When I arrived to get the paperwork signed, the older lady asked if I could pray with them, and then, again, after we were done working on their property. That was really special to me, too.
Oftentimes, the homeowners invited us for a meal while we were cleaning up their property, we’d sit around the table and hold hands and pray, it was special. Working with the homeowners, getting to know them and seeing their gratitude… in spite of all the losses, they were so grateful that they still had their family and were still alive.
