This may sound crazy but even I sometimes wonder how it all gets done! Life House is totally dependent on volunteers! Most people see “Pastor James” but they rarely get to see all the people who are really “behind the scenes” doing a majority of the work.
Let me tell you about these people. They are people who have a deep love for Jesus. These are people who are “doers” of the Word and not just “hearers” only. They love people – Red, yellow, black, white, rich, poor, educated, uneducated, addicted, not addicted and the list goes on and on. They love children and youth. They work, have families, hobbies and other things in their lives BUT they carve out some time to give back to the Lord and His Work. They don’t seek glory. They pray, give time, financially and physically to the work God has called us to do at Life House. Many of our great people have been “in the streets”, have a past, have been to jail or prison. Many have become disillusioned with “church as usual”. They don’t want to be involved with business meetings, committees and politics in church. They simply want to be able to SERVE HIM and DO IT freely. These people get up early, stay late and sometimes clean up others messes. They pray, love, hug, cry, encourage and seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
As pastor of this great ministry I AM BLESSED to have the BEST working with us! Many of our volunteers are people who attend Life House. Many of our volunteers do not even attend the services at Life House and are members of other churches. Several “groups” come from other churches and volunteer together. WITHOUT ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEERS there is NO WAY that Life House could “DO” all that she does for Jesus.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO WORK, SUPPORT, PRAY AND GIVE TO KEEP THIS MINISTRY AFLOAT! We are excited about our future! Pray for us — come see us — come volunteer!!!
THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR WILLING HANDS AND FEET WHO BLESS THIS WORK AND MINISTRY.
We will work, love, pray and give — TILL HE COMES!
