    The comfort these men provided by assisting these families has extended beyond this neighborhood. Everyone in the region has been talking about what these men have done, and in combination with the many other volunteer efforts underway, we feel blessed to live in an area where, without fail, we always come together in a crisis. We are honored to live in “The City of Great Neighbors!”

    I used to be able to shovel out our double driveway alone, while my toddler was asleep…though sometimes it took me 3 or 4 days (like after the blizzard of ’79). But there’s no way I could do it now, at my age, especially not this year since having shoulder surgery. I know how extremely grateful I’d be if I were one of the homeowners in this mobile home park! They sure look snowed in, and I’m sure many residents (like me) couldn’t possibly shovel themselves out…they must have been in a state of panic. Then came the Amish with muscle and shovels to spare! God bless them!

    And yes, Gayle, you are blessed to live in that area!

    Where I live we only got a comparatively small dusting of snow compared to our friends down in Buffalo, I never could rap my head around why its so different at that end of the Niagara River compared to the winter weather here, and I am on a weather making Great Lake too.

    A work of love

    Stories like this are always amazing to me. It’s such a blessing to see people that live out biblical Christianity in their daily lives. I know that the amish are not the only ones doing this kind of thing, but it’s just great to see people actually doing what Jesus would do. This is what Jesus meant when He said: “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” I personally have been inspired by this story to do more works of love! Thanks for sharing this Erik!!
