This time of the year can be filled with so many mixed emotions for both the children and the parents. The kids may have fear and excitement wrapped in one.

When you go to a new church like I wrote about a few weeks ago (link here), one of the first things you may want to do is to find some new friends at that church.

Volunteering is a type
of ministry and a way you can spread God’s Good News by words or just through your actions. I went to the inner part of Milwaukee to a free clinic to help with their monthly services. So people ask, “why go to the inner city? Why put yourself in danger? There is so much you can do in your hometown.” People in your hometown do need to be introduced to Jesus Christ, but we can do that every day but we need to physically put ourselves in the places that the Good News is harder to get to those people. So to Milwaukee we went to directly minister to many people as they come to get health attention. That was my first time doing direct ministry and will not be my last. In fact it’s a start of a large journey I am planning for myself. I’ve done the packing of meals for children around the world and items for those affected by Hurricane Katrina but to me, I want to be in action! I’m writing this to encourage others to get out there! You’re needed! If you feel the tug, don’t hesitate!
