In her opening comments, Cindy pointed toward the prayer, courage, and spiritual vision that the Bible character Nehemiah needed to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem (see Neh., chaps. 1-6). She also referred to Jesus' parable of the good Samaritan (see Luke 10:25-37), noting the compassion of the Samaritan, as well as his willingness both to meet an injured man's immediate need and provide for his long-term care.
