     In July 2014 I was given the opportunity to serve God by working at Open Door Mission’s Timberlake Outreach Center.  We help the Heartland’s neediest neighbors receive resources that lessen some of their burden of providing for their family.  It is a blessing to be used by God in this way.

     I enjoy sharing God’s Word and offering to pray with the guests we serve.  These men, women, and children are so grateful that many times they also pray for me!  I also enjoy the children that come to find toys because the joy that comes to their faces is priceless. 
     Recently, I have met up with a nurse I used to work with and who goes on many mission trips. She is retired and enjoys sharing her experience as a nurse to help others gain health and well-being.  Once a month, she volunteers in the Timberlake Outreach Center, always with a smile on her face and a story to tell.
     Last Thursday, she left for Nepal to help the earthquake victims.  I think she is an awesome woman, is filled with grace to go on missions and help others in this way.  She is just one of many amazing volunteers who donate their time to help the hungry and homeless.  It is a blessing to work alongside such inspirational people.
     This also inspires me to do my job with God in my heart and love for others in our community.  Thanks be to God for this opportunity, praying that He lets me continue serving here for many years to come.
     God bless you all!
