My life in Texas consisted of 45 minute drives. I lived 45 minutes from my family in Cleburne. The drive to my bestie's was 45 minutes. Church was more like 30 minutes, but if the Cowboys were playing at home.. you guessed it, 45 minute drive. How I dreaded those drives! This year I have braved the streets of New York, not just on foot, but behind the wheel! My faithful car has a new home but I am grateful for our Director Andrew's generosity and trust in letting me take his ride for a spin! This particular week was multiple adventures. I became familiar with the road to the post office and conquered fear #2. New York Post Offices. I have heard more than my fair share of horror stories about customer service in New York Post Offices. Praise the Lord for HIS constant protection and favor! I drove to the post office to seek training on a mail out system and was not sure what kind of welcome to expect.
There she was. Vicky works in the bulk mail department and offices around back from the main entrance. Not only did she greet me with a kind smile, but she sat with me and walked through the entire process. She waited for me as I took notes and asked questions and even repeated steps multiple times to ensure I understood. I would be hard pressed to share about a time with better customer service. She did her job with excellence.
As we work with our students at Graffiti 2, I love to share stories of people I encounter every day that take pride in their work. To take it a step further, we talk about honoring God in our work. I challenge our students to dream big and ask the Lord to guide them even now to begin preparing for the roles He has designed them to take on. Join me in praying for the students at Graffiti 2. Pray that they would see that God has created them for a special purpose and that they would be encouraged to pursue their education with excellence!
I'm JoAnn. I am a God worshipping, Jesus following, child teaching, puppy petting, daughter of the King of Kings, who is grateful for daily grace and forgiveness!
