From Victim to Volunteer

By October 1, 2017Uncategorized

It is people like Freda, who give of themselves, despite their own set-backs. Or Derek who worked all day and in a moment’s notice, answered an email, and then drove all night to deploy. Or Tony and Margie who saw a need, borrowed a truck, and drove for three days to get urgent resources to hurricane victims in Florida.

Disaster response is inconvenient and costly but true love has a price. We are so grateful for everyone who has prayed, given and/or gone to the deployments in Houston and Florida. I could go on and on…

Isaiah 58:10
If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.

Titus 3:14
And let our people learn to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
