I Know A Guy . . . who loved people and his church

I know a guy. He was the first person who visited our home after we visited the church, coming just a couple of days later. He wasn't the pastor, didn't get paid to do it, but clearly loved his church and we sensed he loved us. That was twentyy-five years ago. I later discovered that he had been doing that for more than a decade before, and he did it until he was no longer able to do so. His church changed much in those decades, multiple leadership changes, turnover in membership, but this guy . . . this guy apparently loved and served them all.  And, he loved and served hundreds of people like us - people who needed a church.
