Pearls of Rita 12/7/05
By Beverly Burchett
Doug Stringer is the founder of Somebody Cares International, and he really is somebody who cares.
This ministry was born in 1981 when he first handed out a business card which read “Somebody Cares. Call 24 hours a day.” Doug founded this organization to reach out with the Gospel of Jesus to the homeless and hurting in the nation’s cities. His ministry has taken him to many nations, including Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa, Central America, Asia, and KIRBYVILLE, TEXAS!
When I met Doug several years ago, I knew immediately that I had never met a more humble, compassionate, and giving person. His conviction is that because Jesus cares, we must care—and show it in practical and proactive ways. Somebody Cares outreaches include crisis pregnancy intervention, feeding centers, gang prevention, drug abuse recovery, job placement, foster care, and most recently hurricane disaster relief.
The first water and food to come to Kirbyville after the storm were brought by a couple of box trucks sent by Doug Stringer and Somebody Cares.
Before Sunday night, September 25, I had only seen disaster related desperation in movies. As the trucks were being unloaded and hundreds of people waited to receive their contents, I sensed uncertainty and fear. I saw eyes full of weariness and exhaustion. I heard cries of hunger and thirst. I was surprised and heartbroken to see all of the hot, miserable children and babies who had not been evacuated. These trucks not only met these people’s needs for the first night, but more trucks kept coming over the next three weeks. Doug’s compassion for us was also seen as he personally visited Kirbyville on three occasions. One of those times he arrived in a helicopter to take part in our community thanksgiving celebration and to see what else he could do to help us. He or someone from his office called us almost every day to make sure we had what we needed.
Truly, Doug Stringer and the people who work with him in the Somebody Cares organization could make up a full necklace of pearls by themselves. They are genuine pearls of Rita! They are people who care!
The ministry of Somebody Cares is funded strictly from donations. If you would like to say thank you for all their help and prayers, you can send a love gift to Somebody Cares International, P.O. Box 925308, Houston, Texas 77292-5308.
