Me? You ask? Thanks... In May, I became an Ordained Minister. Not for the purpose of preaching, but for the overwhelming feeling inside to provide ministry support for those in need. God directed me to a small town in Texas and here I begin my journey. The animals need help and so do our fellow man. These times are unprecedented and hard. My aim is to help and feed the hungry so in establishing my rescue here in Texas, my next endeavor is to open a soup kitchen and keep a food bank operational. We have so many homeless, hungry, cold, dirty and in need of medical attention. It is my desire to help with these needs.
What you feel as you travel around the tables and booths is a sense of connection. We all converse before, during and after the shows and usually meet at night for a group supper and talk about the day. It's a great way to experience life. We support you as a consumer and ourselves as animal lovers, entrepreneurs and promotors of education. We come together as family at each venue. If someone needs help, it's freely given and information is exchanged so it's a great experience for everyone.
Boom: We are being told for the first time in MY lifetime that we have to stay at home, wear a mask and businesses had to shut down. Where the heck did I wake up? China??? In that faithful morning, my world, along with millions of others, took a drastic change. I no longer had a job, yet I still have the same bills as the day before. How am I going to eat? How am I going to feed all these animals? Lord, the power bill, the animals lives depend on that! Not destroy my credit? The list goes on and on.
Oh Crap, I can't go see my elderly family members and have to worry about my aging friends.
I have a rescue full of animals and no income... marinate on that for a moment.
