Vaught’s note: This is not the normal type post you’ll find here, but on this Sunday I thought it was the perfect time to share a special experience I had last week that was a true reality check about what is important in life and the help so many others truly need.
By LARRY VAUGHT
If you have never been to the Galilean Home in rural Casey County, or even heard about this wonderful organization, you are missing out on a wonderful experience.
I got to spend several hours with the Galilean Home residents and staff last week. And what a blessing it was in so many ways.
The campus ministers to so many from newborns to special needs adults.
When I got there, two of the first people I met were George and Rosie. George was so excited because he had new Nike shoes and a UK McDonald’s cup. He couldn’t wait to take a group picture he knew was coming. And Rosie is a hugger with a delightful smile.
I enjoyed seeing the students hard at work at the affordable Christian school and what they were learning. But I absolutely loved the Angel House and the Born Free Ministry that cares for infants born to women in prison. Mothers at the Kentucky Correctional Institute for Women in Pewee Valley are usually brought to Angel House two or three days after being born in Louisville area hospitals.
Staff watches over the “angels” until their mothers are released from prison. That includes a weekly visit to see the mothers in prison. Once the mothers are released from prison, the children are returned to them.
Two twin brothers reminded me so much of my youngest grandson, especially when one keep wanting to grab and brush my beard. How could I not love him and want to go back to visit again?
Enjoy this slide show of my visit to the Galilean Home as a salute that founder Jerry Tucker and his staff do. For more information if you would like to help, go to www.galileanhome.org or call 606-787-5120.
