The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Implanting the seeds of truth and hope in homeless children and adults, as well as providing a respite for missionaries.
Picture a farm where we grow spiritual fruit. Imagine creating an environment to ignite the imagination, utilizing object lessons (Hebrew picture imagery), taking that which is physical to teach that which is spiritual. And in so doing, producing spiritual fruit (Fruit of the Spirit) through individuals such as yourselves, in order to change and heal the lives of those whose hearts the seeds of truth are implanted. It is been my vision to expand this ministry into the adult phase, in which we also help adults understand their true identity in Christ and the self worth that goes with that understanding. By using problem based learning techniques coupled with agricultural picture imagery, I believe we can break the chains homelessness, teaching them new strategies for processing the sometimes abrasive and even abusive work environment, thus implanting the seeds of truth with the various object lessons stations throughout the farm.
