“If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right.” James 2:8
I realize that we are months into COVID-19 now and we’ve adjusted some things in our lives to protect our own health, that of our families, and our friends. Amongst many other things, there is a lot more handwashing, less time in crowded spaces, and sometimes, the need to wear masks.
A friend and volunteer of ours here in YoungLives, Elaine, asked early on in the COVID-19 stages if any of our teens needed masks. Elaine was sincerely concerned for their safety. This was early on…when masks were a little harder to find, the virus statistics were rising, and the days were just overall a bit scary. And she thought of the teens. Elaine went on to make many, many masks and delivered them all over Huntington Beach, Westminster, and Santa Ana. This is one of the things I love so much about this ministry. People going out of their way for the teens. People loving their neighbors, just as we are called to do.
