Methodist Children’s Home recognizes staff who have demonstrated our core values in their work with our youth and families. The following is an excerpt from the nomination of Rebecca James for the Christian Principles core value award. Rebecca is a caseworker in the Albuquerque outreach office.
“This core value is described as the ‘foundation of our ministry.’ As a caseworker, Rebecca exemplifies this value in the truest sense. Her determination to be mindful of the great calling that has been placed on her life and to carry it well and with diligence is obvious in all that she does, both in the office with her co-workers and in the community with her clients. The greatest example of this can be seen in her work with single mothers that are victims of extreme homelessness. Rebecca truly reaches out to ‘the least of these.’ She does not shy away from a mountain of problems and what is seemingly impossible. She is excellent at helping families determine what they need and how to get there. She gets right in the trenches with them and helps them figure it out.”
Rebecca shared the following about receiving the Christian Principles core value award:
“I am truly blessed to be a part of the Methodist Children’s Home. It is a true answer to prayer. As for the award, well praise God. I pray that he continues to use me.”
“ For He will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help.”
