A Few Words From Our Volunteers…

This summer we had lots of volunteers in Alaska, helping SEND North.

 

Have you ever thought about volunteering for a week? Here’s what some of our volunteers from this year had to say . . .

 

In the tiny classic book, The Practice of The Presence of God by Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection – a 17th century monk tells us to know God, to truly be in His presence, one must seek a continual conversation with God, in small and big tasks, in all that we do. And that’s what we did as we had the chance to serve and care for missionary families by feeding them at the SEND North annual conference in Anchorage. Through thousands of small tasks, we found God present and had unbelievable joy serving together.

The food team had a marvelous, joyful, stretching, fantastic experience. It was a beautiful time.  To God be the glory – any good that came out of the kitchen was with his blessings!!!

~ Debbie, SEND North volunteer

 

 

What a privilege and a blessing! We all came away with a better sense of the ministry of SEND North and how to pray for its missionaries—kids, teens and adults.

~ Marilyn, SEND North volunteer

 

 

As we return to normal life this week and prepare for the next busy season of our lives, I realize none of us will ever be the same, because of this trip.  We anticipate seeing the unfolding of God’s design over time, and are incredibly grateful for each person who prayed, gave, sacrificed, planned, prayed, hosted, drove, prayed, cooked, cleaned and prayed.  We praise God for His provision and sustenance and allowing all of us to be a small part of His plan.

~ Alta, SEND North volunteer
