Ingredients:

3 parts Soul

4 parts Heart

6 parts Commitment

7 parts Determination

Measureless amounts of Jesus

 

Directions:

To be a hero what does that mean?  Is it the caped crusader visible in comic books, cartoons or action movies?  No, I believe the true heroes are the men and women who work hard every day to make a difference in the lives of “Others.”  True heroes do indeed possess super human strength as they work on little to no sleep in times of disaster and they’ve been called to search and rescue amongst the devastation; finding those who are holding on to hope that someone will find them.  Heroes are the ones who carves out specific hours out of their day to serve meals to the homeless, build food boxes and pray with the elderly in nursing homes.  We all have the ability to be heroic and serve the world around us no matter how small or how large, it all creates impact!  To do so, one must first be filled with lots of heart and soul, eager to reach out and meet the need at the point of need.  Next you must add commitment and determination; how vital it is to stay the course and never cave to the distractions of this world.  Then heap on insurmountable amounts of Jesus, enabling you to be the light in the dark for those who are seeking; those who are lost; those who are scared.

 

On September 8, 1900, a hurricane devastated Galveston, Texas leaving more than 5,000 people dead. The city, sustaining extensive property damage, was virtually destroyed. While survivors were still reeling from this onslaught of nature, Frederick Booth-Tucker, National Commander, ordered Salvation Army officers from across America to proceed to the disaster site to provide spiritual and material assistance. This, The Salvation Army's first national disaster appeal for funds, was generously supported by caring Americans. From these beginnings a century ago, The Salvation Army has developed local, regional and national disaster services programs. Whether it be a local incident or a major disaster, Salvation Army staff and volunteers are often the first on the scene and the last to depart, honoring a century-old commitment to serve those in need, at the time of need, and at the place of need. The red shield continues to be a beacon of compassion; of immediate aid, psychological support and spiritual counsel to individuals and families whose lives have been disrupted or shattered by forces beyond their control. Salvation Army disaster response teams, coordinated and directed by commissioned officers and trained personnel, supported by volunteers, are "on call" to serve at all disasters which place a community or its populace at risk or which may disrupt or destroy family security and well-being.
