Later, that same afternoon, I gave tours of Open Door Mission’s campus to many of the walkers. One group included a 9 year old boy. At the end of the tour his mother said her son wanted to give something. I was intrigued as he approached me. He said he wanted to contribute all the money he had in his pocket to help the people living at Open Door Mission. He emptied his pocket of 14 quarters and 3 pennies. He is a young boy with a special heart, wanting to help others.
As I recall those children I remember the Bible verse from Matthew 18:2: Jesus called a little child to come to him. Jesus stood the child before the followers. Then Jesus said, “I tell you the truth. You must change and become like little children.” Yes, like those 9 year old children, each with a special heart, wanting to help others.
