On Oct 11th 2001 one month exactly after 9/11 we landed in NYC with two suitcases full of cookies and love in our hearts. Myself, future wife Haylee, Brandon, Gilda, Amy, Jeanette, Chris and Donnie were on a mission to love on the men and women in the NYC firehouses. We knew they had suffered tremendous loss and wanted to show our support and love from Oklahoma. You see when I was in the 7th grade I lost two friends in the OKC bombing on April 19th 1995. Firefighters from NYC came to OKC to help, love and support us during this trial. We wanted to do the same for them.
We gathered our suitcases up and began walking around NYC going from Firehouse to Firehouse. We prayed with, loved on, told stories with and I’m sure cried with a few. The men and women of each NYC firehouse welcomed us with open arms and love. They also enjoyed the cookies 🙂 We were blessed to setup a soup kitchen through a local ministry in Jesus’ name and bless those who were without their homes. I will never forget a man who still had his suit on that worked in one of the twin towers. I have never written about this blessed experience before, but I felt compelled to share on this 12 year anniversary of 9/11. I will never forget.
