The things we can do when we work as a community
It was a pretty sad situation when the commercial cooling program quit easily working at our church! You should’ve seen the bishop, he was practically begging people to donate funds towards getting the commercial cooling program fixed or replaced. On a realistic level, there was no way we would be able to afford a brand new commercial cooling program in the church building, maintenance to get it easily working seemed doable! A lot of people donated money, even though I learned from talking from the bishop that we only had about half the amount of money that we needed. Everybody who was attending church was perspiring like crazy, the air quality was terrible, and it was just angry for a long while. The bishop was asking me if I knew anybody who would be able to help out. I thought about it and the only person I could think of was my uncle who was a retired heating and A/C professional. He pleaded with me to please reach out to our uncle to see if he could help. My uncle was surprised when I got on the phone with him because we hadn’t spoken in years. I told him the situation at the church building and he said he could have a look and see what was going on. He had experience with commercial heating and A/C repairs back in his day and he still had his tools. He brought some seasoned heating and A/C buddies along and they agreed to take care of the commercial cooling maintenance for the amount of money that the church had. They got the cooling program working again in one day, and everybody was so grateful, including myself.
