The week of October 13 was one of service to the elderly. Abante International puts great emphasis in serving “the least of these”, believing that the elderly deserve our attention, love and respect. The colleagues served two sets of ailing grandparents in need of housework, painting, cleaning, and most of all, fellowship.
Sometimes elders feel neglected or forgotten by society. However in Abante International, there is a great focus placed on mentoring and being mentored by elders. The program provides opportunities for the colleagues to interact with elders and seat under their guidance and wisdom. Great wisdom can be gained from story-telling.
The team prayed over these precious elders, and shared a typical Puerto Rican meal prepared by the elderly woman. Serving the elderly is not only biblical, but also a wonderful privilege.
