Yosef Daniel is a 2013 graduate of South Forsyth and started serving with flood second semester of his senior year. His favorite project by far was Chestnut Ridge Nursing Home since he had recently taken care of his own grandmother before she passed away. This Thanksgiving he brought his two sisters to serve at Chestnut Ridge and posted this on his instragram. It’s stories like these that truly captivate how students give and receive HOPE thru serving with flood!
“Tonight I got a wonderful opportunity to serve with flood student missions again, an organization I was a part of in high school. It’s been a while since I’ve served with them at Chestnut Ridge Nursing Home, and through serving, I’ve met so many wonderful people there. One of them in particular was Ms. Evelyn Davis. Ms. Evelyn was my favorite resident because she taught me so many life lessons. Like how to appreciate the simple things in life and how we are to treat EVERYONE with love and respect no matter what. Whenever, I would go to see her, she would always have a smile on her face that brightened the room. Unfortunately, Ms. Evelyn passed away 3 months ago. She was 96 years old. I will never forget her and the profound impact that she had on my life. If anyone has family members in nursing homes, please make sure you visit them an show them love because you’ll never know when God will call for them.”
