Throughout the whole week, I experienced nothing but unconditional love and happiness from every single resident.
Once I stepped off the bus, to Jacob’s Ladder, I was greeted with the warmest smiles and hugs from all the of residents and the caretakers. Throughout the whole week, I experienced nothing but unconditional love and happiness from every single resident. It was evident to see how we impacted their lives, just as much as they impacted ours. I didn't want to leave.
My heart belongs there, I made great friends and I will miss my team. I miss the laughter from the residents. I miss waking up to a resident singing out of my bedroom window in morning, waiting for me to come out. I miss their smiles and their warm hugs. The sayings on the churches we went to said, “He is here.” Yes, Jesus was there! He was in the faces of all the residents. There was so much joy, serving them, and working side-by-side with them.
