USHERING IN A CLEAN WORLD

There was a man named Dave who was blind. For a period of time we were working with him, bringing him to church and helping him out. Dave began to come along regularly; more than anything I think he liked the fact that people in our church cared about him. One day some of the ladies in our church went over to help clean his apartment for him. When they set to work, they encountered filthiness they never would have imagined. His kitchen cupboards were covered in the evidence of cockroach visitors and cockroaches that had decided that Dave’s place was a good place to die. His bathroom defied description, his entire home was filthy. But the amazing thing is that Dave had no idea he was living in such uncleanness!

It was the masterful touch of the women who volunteered their time and efforts that ushered Dave into a world of cleanliness he’d not known.
