Celebrating Our Volunteers
// Tim DeTellis
Volunteers from Summit Church in Orlando participate in monthly "Nice Serve" projects, and include New Missions.
On a Saturday morning at about 9:00 a.m., a small group of people from a local church arrived at our office and spent three hours serving together at New Missions in Orlando. These are the people behind the scenes making New Missions better.
From sorting shoebox gifts into cases for shipment to Haiti, to assembling letters from sponsors to their children, our volunteers help the mission run and we are so thankful. One group said their favorite project was sending updated child photos to sponsors. As they looked at each photo, they saw the faces of kids being loved and cared for by their sponsor family.
When we look at the life of Jesus, we see a servant; one who came to give life—to help others by walking alongside them in their times of need. He went to those who were hurting to bring them hope. Our volunteers are living a life of significance, as they turn their love into action.
Together, we are celebrating our volunteers and thank God for their tireless efforts to serve the children and families of New Missions. Thank you! ~Tim DeTellis
