Over the last couple of months, I have spoken to people more and more about how they can “serve” their community and share God’s love through that service. I have heard several people say that they weren’t sure what they could do or wonder if they have anything to offer. I love to give the good news that God has equipped everyone to make a difference! He has already given us everything we need to serve AND be a God-Bringer in the process. The testimony below about volunteering with Joining Hands Community Mission says quite a bit about who can serve.
“I am a third year AmeriCorps VISTA – Volunteer in Service to America, so you could say I volunteer for a living, and this was the best volunteer experience I have ever had. There were so many people there to help and answer questions. The woman who helped me register when I first walked in was so knowledgeable and professional that I thought she was a long-time volunteer. I asked her when she started volunteering with Joining Hands and she told me since 8 a.m. this morning. It was her first day! I had such a wonderful time. The people were friendly, and the red aprons made sure I always had something to do. I also really enjoyed seeing even the children doing significant jobs like personal shopping. The fact that they were able to take on that task, is testament to how organized the process is.” – Nicole, Tarpon Springs
