In His Own Words

One of the best things about serving others is making new friends. In December of last year, I learned about Mr. Henderson, an elderly man in Brookshire whose home had fallen into horrible disrepair. I had to see things for myself — and that meant closing the distance between myself and Mr. Henderson.

When I moved in Mr. Henderson’s direction and met him, I learned just how challenging his situation was. There was no way I could look the other way. I knew that I had to act — to mobilize volunteers to answer Mr. Henderson’s prayers. Working with our friends at The Hangar Unity Center in Brookshire, a ministry of Eyes On Me, we hammered out a game plan to bless Mr. Henderson.

In the span of one week in January, an army of volunteers blessed Mr. Henderson with a home makeover. For the first time in eleven years, Mr. Henderson had running water, a stable roof over his head, and a secure place to live.

Chad Swiggart, videographer for Eyes On Me, prepared a great video about the week we spent blessing Mr. Henderson. I love what we were able to do for this kind gentleman - but the best part of it all for me was making a new friend in Mr. Henderson. I hope you will take a moment to watch the video and listen to Mr. Henderson tell the story in his own words.
