Modern Day Mother Theresa

Last Thursday, Jordan and I, ventured to Charlotte, NC to visit with Mrs. Dixie Forbes, aka Miss Dixie. In 2008, Miss Dixie came out to Scotland on a mission trip and since then we have been connected. I was amazed at the stories she told me as I got to know her. Miss Dixie is a pastor of homeless church in Gastonia, NC. The stories of charity, grace, and pure love was astonishing.

Every Sunday Miss Dixie and her husband Jasper, pick up the homeless, cook for them, and provide a church service for them. They care for them and love them as they would do for anyone else. Miss Dixie's love for the poor is remarkable. In fact, love oozes from her. When ever I'm around her, I can't help but want to hug her and love everyone around me. What she has, is infectious and it is a marvelous thing.

Miss Dixie and her husband is truly a Modern Day Mother Theresa. I love them dearly and inspire me daily.
