Lex Gruver: Boy Wonder
Anyone that knows Lex at all understands that Lex loves to read and to work hard. Since we have had no time for reading, Lex threw himself into serving others this past two weeks.
The very first day he introduced himself to the kitchen staff and helped set the tables and get dinner out. That night Lex woke up to roosters at 3am and heard a sound from the kitchen. Thinking he was missing out, Lex got up, quietly unlocked our door and proceeded to wash dishes until Will found him helping prepare breakfast at 6am.
Throughout the past 10+ days various managers and staff at Abundant Life such as Able, Patricia, Kelvin, Allen and other friends approached us to tell us how much they love Lex. Lots of people would have told a 10 year old to go to bed or not wanted him around. But these wonderful people patiently and graciously allowed Lex to help and it blessed all of us!
If you look closely at this picture you will see the affection these 4 men have four each other. Thank you Abundant Life for a wonderful time in Zambia.
