Over the past year I’ve been challenged to think beyond myself and possibly look at any and every opportunity to bring Jesus to people. It hasn’t been easy, and it shouldn’t be. Christ himself is the perfect example of this and therefore, results in the proclamation of His glory when people come to know and love Him.
After that first summer, I finally understood the enormous blessing of serving. I witnessed God’s work in the Flemingdon Park community as well as in my own faith journey. It wasn’t about the pay or the quantity of work at hand. It was about wholeheartedly serving, surrendering to God, and relying on God at every moment. It was about the team members edifying each other, community, bonding, and growing spiritually together. Despite the daily hectic-ness and long days, I felt joy, contentment, and peace in serving. It was truly a blessing to be able to witness God at work in the kids.
