Sydney is one of our beloved clients who survived Hurricane Ike even after a tree fell onto the middle of his roof and destroyed much of his living space. LINC Houston through the work of many volunteers was able to repair his home, but the ministry continues.
Sydney lives alone and suffers from a painful type of bone cancer. Every time he raises himself up slowly from his recliner, he groans. We have actually seen him cry a couple of times from the intense pain. Through a mini-grant for unmet needs through NCI, his case manager Michelle was able to purchase a gently used recliner that lifts up with an electric motor. The chair was delivered and Sydney was overjoyed.
Sydney is a survivor in so many ways. We are blessed to have the privilege of serving him with Jesus' love.
