24 years ago, this week, my parents were getting ready to welcome home a new baby girl. At the same time, a 22 year old woman was preparing to make a very difficult decision. She had already decided but still had 5 days to make it official. 24 years ago, this week, I was born and was blessed with a family that raised me in a Christian home.
My older birth brother is Wiccan, my birth sister and younger brother have been confused for years. My sister only recently has come to Christ. I was blessed. I could have been just as confused. I could have gone through more horrific things than I did.
I am thankful I had a great family that introduced me to Jesus.
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!
