One word... wow!! I can't even imagine their doing that day after day. Well I did go beyond the call of duty with the fund raising as well...
I still feel as if I am walking on a cloud... so full of joy and happiness after yesterday's experience.
I never realized how rewarding it would feel to give back to others. Sharing some pictures from our day.
This is me! LOL! Took time away from the fruit salad to take a few pictures to record the "historical" event.
Here are some of the volunteers from my church, including my brother in law's girlfriend far left and my mom (mil) serving right next to her.
My little Calley taking a little salad break. Such a wonderful learning opportunity for her.
More volunteers from my church. A mom and dad in the background, while we had their three children and two of their friends are serving food. Boy we really used this as a learning opportunity for them. Mom and Dad thanked me after I spoke with them of the importance of an education.
Picture of some of the wonderful people we were serving at the shelter.
My hope for the people that stay and use the Rescue Mission is for them to be able to get on their own one day and not have to turn to the Rescue Mission for their meals and a night's rest. I even saw that there were even some families staying there as well. My heart goes out to them.
I feel so blessed that even through all our tough times it never came to this for us. I feel so blessed that we have a roof over our heads, utilities, television and internet, and not to mention food on our plates. Thank you Jesus!
