For the past two years, the people at the First Baptist Church have been wonderful, really aiding the efforts. They openly welcome those who need a place to eat and they offer healing fellowship with others from across society’s spectrum. And maybe, just maybe, some of those people will get some spiritual help too.
All the things that Moab Solutions, and lately, The Salvation Army, has done for these folks, folks that really had no advocate before, has improved their lives and strengthened the community. This success is a direct result of the time and energy put into the work, time and energy which is vital to those who want a more humane and balanced life but need a hand up to get on track to help themselves. Sadly, many of these people have issues that may never be resolved and which are greatly complicated by addictions and mental health issues. But I know that Moab Solutions and The Salvation Army will continue to believe that change is always possible and refreshing.
I’ve always believed that we all need to focus on the positive and realize that there will usually be someone who wants to throw a monkey wrench in our way because they are unhappy. Deep down in my heart I know that is what is happening in this instance. I truly respect Moab Solutions and others in the community for all they do for others and I have great respect for those who put others before themselves. Let’s keep moving forward.
