A personal note we received from a guest at the Compassion Vancouver Heights Clinic on July 23:
"I'm not sure how to begin this message. I went to the VancouverCompassion Clinic today. I was having some foot issues, most important to me was an ingrown toenail. I was very nervous. The treatment I got there was awesome, and the bad toenail removed.
But that was not the only thing that happened to me, or even the most important. You see, I have a huge rift with my son,and have been unable to forgive him for the pain he has caused in our family. The woman who was cleaning my foot, and of course I can't remember her name, asked if there was anything I wanted to pray about. I asked that we pray that my son finds the right path, and we did.
"But in that moment what actually happened was that I forgave my son. Completely and with all my heart, something I had been unable to do on my own."
But in that moment what actually happened was that I forgave my son. Completely and with all my heart, something I had been unable to do on my own. I now pray that he will forgive me for my shortcomings, because, Lord, do I miss him! And I am asking anyone who reads this to pray that he can forgive me and we can come together again.
My toe is throbbing and my tears are flowing but my heart is happy, my burden lighter. Thank you all!"

We're inspired by these everyday heroes whose lives we see transformed before our very eyes because people from all different demographic and denominational backgrounds are stepping up together to say "We are the Church, and we love you." And when that happens, the Kingdom of Heaven gets a tiny bit closer to earth.
