Convoy of Hope

Another 'disaster' hits this country.  Four lanes of bumper-to-bumper traffic trying to get as far as they can from it as fast as they can!  There is another group of folks, however, with Semis, motorhomes, trailers, food and clothing trying to get there as fast as they can!  WHAT'S WRONG WITH THEM?!

They go where hope has disappeared,  
(as well as homes and livelihood!)
A chosen group of saints they are,
from all walks, bringing 'good!'
They are the men and women of
a Convoy known as 'Hope!'
For they bring food and medicines,
and Christ to help folks cope!
They set up wherever it be safe,
and then set out from there.
Taking this priceless ministry
to people anywhere!
And helping all who come to them
with whatever they can do!
Everything from giving hugs
to rebuilding homes anew!
And PRAYING TO GOD for one and all
that come into their path.
Especially the ones that have
experienced nature's wrath!

At a moment's notice, they
can pick up from their base,
and be wherever disaster strikes!
It's almost like a race!
And NOTHING is too difficult
as GOD is in their hearts!
His love, compassion and His skill,
their every hand, imparts!

We pray each day for this skilled team
who set their lives aside
and rush to where they're needed most-
His bidding to abide!
We pray for safety, blessing and
reward for one and all
who tune their ear unto the faintest
painful, pleading call!

Yes, God bless each member of The Convoy of Hope!  I know a few of them that belong to this elite, humble and compassionate group, and they are truly one-of-a-kind!!  GODSPEED, TEAM!!
