Working Together in Florida

Working Together in Florida


[MUSIC PLAYING] Samaritan’s Purse has been
down in Fort Myers in Southwest Florida working. Today we partnered with
Juniper Landscaping. That’s my cousin’s
landscaping company. They have skidsteers and
tractors and trailers and all kinds of
equipment, chainsaws. I mean, they’re a full
landscaping company, so we were able to
partner with them today and get a
lot of work done. I wanted to do an
outreach day, so I just figured I’d join up
with Samaritan’s Purse. When I told Corey what I wanted
to do, he jumped all over it. Yeah, we just decided to team
up today and work together, pull people from Samaritan’s
Purse and resources from Juniper, and go
at it together, and try to get as much done in
one day as we could. We just lifted trees
off of people’s houses. We lifted trees and
cut trees up out of people’s driveways
and walkways so they could get
in their houses. Every single person
from Juniper Landscaping is donating their time
from the top down, and so anyone you see moving a
chainsaw or a rig or a tractor, they’re not getting paid. They volunteered their time, and
they’re just the best people. We are so thankful
for our employees. We all came together
for the mission, and the mission was to present
the Gospel to these homeowners. I had no idea that this
was going to happen. You know, this was
a blessing for me. Thank God for Samaritan’s
Purse for taking care of my tree for me. They’ve done in an
hour, hour and a half, where it was going to take
me a whole week to do. So I really appreciate
it, I really do. Brandon and I, we
believe in the mission of being the hands
and feet of Jesus. Just having other
believers that have that same mindset and
that mission come together alongside us and just
do, just go and do, is really what our
goal was with this. And whether it was a little
tiny impact or a big one, whatever we could do,
we wanted to help. Thank God for the work you guys
do, and may God be with you. And hopefully a lot of people
will step up and step forward and help and make everything
a little bit better for everybody. When you have a storm,
when you have a disaster, people band together,
and you really create a really strong bond. That’s what will be
taken away from this. I just appreciate Samaritans
Purse coming and joining with us. And it was a great day. [MUSIC PLAYING]
