Most of the excitement about our having received the Lumen Christi Award has subsided, but we and our people continue to live on the memories.  In the new issue of our PDH newsletter, we share the details of that celebration.  In our acceptance speech, we stated that we three ICM’s are just the front line seen by others, but there are many people who hold us up and make us look good!  That’s the gospel truth.  Let us introduce you to one such wonderful person.



Bill Worley is a transplanted former Winter Texan who has been delivering donated goods to PDH for ten years now, and he is still going strong!  At his own expense, Bill has now made a total of 500 such trips out here to the Colonia, logging some 15,000 miles in the process.  He and Dottie live in the Bentsen Grove RV Park, as do many of our volunteers. Whenever someone has furniture, clothing, household items, etc. to donate to PDH, they call Bill to pick it up or simply put it on his porch. When Bill has a truckload, he sets out to deliver it to us, and we pass it on to our colonia people. Bill has worn out one pick-up truck and has lots of miles on his second one. 

A couple of years ago, he was feeling his age and announced his retirement, but that just didn’t work! In a few weeks, he was back on the job. Not a week goes by without a visit from Bill, and we look forward to his smiling face.  He is “allergic” to publicity, looks for no recognition, but we just could not let this 500th trip milestone pass without acknowledging all that he is to us. Another Winter Texan, George Wardrip, arranged for the “Winter Texan Times” to have a reporter ride along with Bill on his 500th trip, and we hope that the local TV station will respond to our request for coverage of this great man’s endless devotion to PDH.
