Our Lady's Inn
December 8, 2009
I don't know how they do it...but they do. Day in and day out, the staff members I work with collaborate and encourage each other. They are friends that have come together to serve those in need. I asked a few of them a question today. It was: Why do you do what you do? Each of them shared a different gift that they had to offer and expressed that they saw a need for that gift to be shared. With God at the center of this organization, it has not only survived, it has flourished beautifully. I strive to be like the people I work with. That has never been the case, and I have never been around such an awesome team of people (even in my work with for-profit organizations) that peacefully and collaboratively come together to help a group in need. This same team brings God into its work setting and does not hesitate to give Him credit; I have never seen such devotion or credit given to the Lord by one group of people, not even while volunteering at my church. Not one resident goes wanting of anything; each, if she desires it, can receive an abundance of food, advice, friendship, love, shelter (whether at OLI or at a place that OLI finds for them), or any other basic need. God bless Our Lady's Inn and my friends (the staff, volunteers, and residents).
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
the most loving and giving people I have met in my life. I enjoy every moment with them and have learned so much from each one of them.
