This week, I was strolling down memory lane with a high school senior who was in our program when she was in elementary school. This particular girl holds a special place in my heart. She was always so happy to be in our programs and was at our door whenever it was open.
She asked me if I remembered the name of the retired volunteer who played baseball with her in our parking lot and introduced her to the Goosebumps chapter book series. She asked me about the summer staff camp counselor who took her and her small group to the movies after they won a competition. We looked at tons of pictures of her smiling face at our programs, and I felt so thankful that NLP was her safe place to have fun and learn about Jesus. What an impact!
Grandpa Chuck and Becky (if you are reading this), you loved well in your time at NLP. You played with our kids, helped them to love reading, and clearly showed them the love of Christ.
To all of our volunteers, what a blessing you have been and continue to be. You may never see the impact you have on these kids, but your commitment of time and care to them is something they will always remember.
In Luke 10 Jesus sends out those who had been asking 'Lord, what can I do to serve you?' He commissions them out with this phrase: "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few" in verse 2. Jesus is describing the current context of his day where there were people ready to hear about the Good News, but there weren't enough dedicated to taking it to the ends of the earth. How can we participate in this call in our city? We need those people that will come alongside our students to teach and love them just as Jesus loves them. Would you answer the call, taking part in his kingdom work by laying down your time commitment for others? Jesus never said following him would be easy, but He does promise it will be worth it.
