For this week's #TeamTuesday, we would like for you to meet Amanda, one of DDM's Residential Service Coordinators. Amanda works with four of our homes and is an incredible team member at DDM.

Each year, it has become a tradition for Amanda's family to host Thanksgiving Dinner at her home for many of our residents. She has a special table cloth that everyone that attends signs each year in a different color. Amanda says her family "loves being able to share the holiday with those that may not have anywhere to visit or go". THANK YOU, Amanda Pelot, for opening your home and your heart to the men and women at DDM. You are a huge part of the DDM Team and what makes our ministry so special.

Beverly singing SILENT NIGHT!!!! she ABSOLUTELY LOVESSSS to sing!!!
I am so sorry I will not be able to join you next week at camp. My family celebrates the Nall Gulf Get-a-way each year and this year it begins tomorrow - August 24th. We will be celebrating our 25th annual get-a-way! My prayers are with the staff and the residents. It is my hope that the week is fun-filled and everything goes according to plan. I will miss fishing and especially drumming. Drumming seems to help me get the frustrations that build up in me after almost 45 years of working in the church. :)
