Because of You, presented by Strength for Service, was created to share real-life stories of men and women who sacrifice so much for so many – the countless front line and first responders who deserve to be reminded there is a high calling to their work – and a divine God who sees and feels their pain, who shares in their celebration of a life saved or grief of a life lost. Whatever they are feeling or experiencing, we want to remind them they are not alone.
This month we introduce you to Oklahoma City Fire Captain Miguel Baez, a servant leader committed to treating everyone with the same level of care and concern he would want for his own family, in times of need. With a heart full of compassion and grace, he reminds us people “don’t call 911 just because they’re having the greatest time.” Whatever difficult situation we find ourselves in, it is a great comfort knowing Captain Baez and his fellow first responders are here to answer the call.
Now, it’s our turn to honor their life of service and thank our nation’s first responders for always putting others before self. We know it’s not easy to see what they see and feel what they feel. We are grateful for all Captain Baez and others do to keep us safe and protected.
“By this all people will know you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:35
