Love INC Impact Stories

Softening a Hardened Heart

Posted by Erin Tink on

For nearly a year we have been arranging a ride for one gentleman to make a monthly trip to both ALDI and Walmart with one of our volunteers. He lives on a fixed income and he is very strategic with his grocery shopping trips - buying only what is on his list and, from what we can tell, the same items each month.

When he first started to contact Love INC to arrange a ride, he was quiet and reserved and he didn't give us much information about his circumstances. Nevertheless, we continued to arrange his rides and pray with him each time he called.

We send the same volunteer to pick him up as often as possible. Some time along the way this arrangement turned into a friendship. This gentleman is beginning to open up to our volunteer and when we follow up with both of them it's obvious they enjoy their time together.

It's amazing to see how time, consistency and just the right amount of intentionality has softened the heart of someone we deemed hard to reach.
