Have you ever asked yourself the question, “What can I do?” We all have at one point in our lives. Maybe you feel as if you don’t have the talent that you would like to have. There will always be excuses of why not to be involved. I want to remind you that there are tremendous needs all around us! We recently took a group of men to the Fairbanks Rescue Mission as part of our Project Reach. Several of these men were not involved in any ministry and it was exciting to see them volunteer their time and talents to make a difference. We served in the kitchen, preparing food for the homeless as well as doing some cleaning. Next, we served at the the recycle center where the residents from the Rescue Mission have the opportunity to work a job and gain some stability in their lives. Everyone’s favorite part of volunteering was spending time with those at the Rescue Mission that had been down a very hard and dark path. It was such a blessing to see God use these men listen to and encourage those that feel like they have no hope. I wonder what we could do for the Kingdom of God if we really laid aside things that are not important in light of eternity and invest in eternal souls. Time is Short! “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might;” Ecclesiastes 9:10.
