How long have you been volunteering for Maryhurst?
2 ½ years
Why do you volunteer?
Since I’m a Christian and the Holy Spirit lives inside of me. I prompted to serve God and show others what I have, so that they would want what I have. Jesus always served those who needed help. The healthy don’t need a doctor. Not only is this the most important thing I do, but the most rewarding.
Why do you choose to donate your time to Maryhurst?
A lady name Jennifer Elery at our Bible study was serving there and wanted to expand the ministry and asked if I was interested.
Can you share an experience with Maryhurst that made you realize you were making a difference?
God works in mysterious ways. The girls started praying, encouraging, and getting Baptized. They looked forward to seeing us each week and missed us when we weren’t there. Same for us we miss them when we can’t be there.
What advice would you give someone who is on the fence about volunteering?
I would tell them to reach out to those in need, give it some time and watch God work. You will be amazed what he can do.
What do you do when you are not volunteering?
I go to Church, play volleyball and tennis. I also have three kids who keep me busy.
