Two Veterans Teams are visiting veterans residing at two Bellvue Assisted Living Facilities today. At the request of the veterans living there they will be bringing their Veteran Experiences, coffee, Dunkin Donut munchkins with them.

Our teams understand that soldiers are not islands alone, but in their duty, wherever it may be, their families walk alongside of them in spirit while they serve our country.

Having walked a mile in their boots we can relate to their military experiences.

 

The Team Leaders are Rev. Stephen Cole, Team #1 and Mr. Bill Logan, Team #2. Please pray for their success in camaraderie. By our efforts may the Lord's Mercy and Goodness be reflected, so that all may know -We have not forgotten.

The Veterans & Coffee Team is on a mission to meet with underserved veterans and veteran family members at the Bellevue Assisted Living Facility, 1000 Professional Way, on Jan. 20th at 10:30 AM. We will bring coffee, donuts, bottled water, puzzles, uno cards... and, most importantly our Veteran Experiences from the military. The facility's staff received requests from resident veterans longing to speak to other veterans. Their comment to the staff was, "No one understands."
Yes, we, The Veteran's Team of the CVC, understand.

How this all came about:
Mr. David Snyder lit the match. He visited one of the Assisted facilities and the director, Lily, said that she had a resident who wanted to talk to a veteran as no one on staff had been in the service. All soldiers have similar experiences and can relate to each other as football players can relate to other football players no matter where they come from. JT Cox and I went to see Lily and  fire broke out in the locker room back at the church, praise the Lord.

Darleen Varona & Tim Garrett are working with Jim Lindenmayer concerning a county wide report on how many homeless veterans are in Cherokee County.  Tim Garrett, the Team Leader, will report on their endeavors at our February meeting.

(Mission Ongoing)

Our leadership team has asked Steve and Tina Sosebee to assume Team Leader Roles for 'Remote Veterans Missions'. This is a new challenge for our CVC Missions Teams. This February meeting Tina and Steve will take a few minutes to inspire our Team regarding reaching underserved veterans in remote areas. Tina's email is Tina Sosebee <sosebee.tina@gmail.com> if you're interested in hearing more of their story and being a part of  their exciting challenge.

Gene, thank you so much for stopping by today. It was great getting to meet Mimi! The staff loved the little munchkin donuts and the residents were SO happy with their gifts.
