In Woodward, as in place after place across our state, nation and world, those in the bright yellow shirts and hats give themselves away without reserve and pour oil on the troubled waters of people in need. With every meal and every touch, the love of Christ is evident. Their listening ears, comforting hugs and soft prayers bring the presence of God amid tragedy and despair.
I give praise to the Father for the thousands of trained volunteers who serve. Join me in praying for those in Woodward who have lost so much.
