There’s a saying that goes “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

If this motto summons up visions of brave postal workers trudging through inclement weather conditions, think again.

During this entire pandemic, beginning back in March, David Newman and Neighborhood Life Church, despite the weather, have been gathering donations and preparing food packages for the residents and shut-ins of La Mirada.

On Saturday, September 5th, Mayor John Lewis and Pastor Newman were out in 105 degree heat, making sure that those in need were taken care of, although the weather channel reported the temperature was 111 degrees, they trudged on.

Mayor Lewis said that Newman was one of the hardest working pastors in La Mirada.

“I am grateful for all of the pastors and volunteers in La Mirada that have been neighbors to this city, and laying the foundation of being dedicated to serve way before Neighborhood Life Church began serving here. Go Team!!” said Newman.
