Agnes, who is a 90 year old widow, was in desperate need of help. She had a relative who had been using her home as a dumping ground for years. Her yard was covered in rusted and rotting junk. Finally the neighbors started to complain. The city took action and threatened to charge Agnes of up to $2,500 a day if the terrible mess wasn’t cleaned up.
But this was just part of what was going on with her. Agnes’ entire home had fallen into disrepair, making life miserable. Her roof was falling apart, there were animals living in it. She had no air conditioning and no one to help her.
Agnes’ husband had passed away, and she was barely able to walk. So she couldn’t remove the trash herself and no help was in sight.
With nowhere to turn, Agnes contacted Operation Blessing. Operation Blessing is “dedicated to demonstrating God’s love by alleviating human need and suffering in the United States and around the world,” all according to its website. The organization provides disaster relief, health and medical care, community development, safe water, vulnerable children, orphan care and hunger relief.
The people at Operation Blessing cleaned out all Agnes’ yard and tore down the trailer and shed on her property. This is what they had agreed to do for her.
But when Agnes went outside and saw other volunteers had been showing up, people that she didn’t ask for. She wondered what was going on.
