I have volunteered to assist this amazing organization on various occasions because the work they are doing is so incredible. They have gone into areas that no one else was interested in going to in order to help an entire village to improve their standard of living. They have been able to get running water, electricity and phone lines into the village they have assisted in Peru and have helped refugees in Uganda, slaves in Sudan, political prisoners in Kenya and impoverished people here in the US. I am proud to help them raise funds for their amazing endeavors!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching tens of thousands of lives touched and changed!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them more volunteers and way more funding!

Shekinah Gloria Ministries is a great ministry that God is using to reach and help people in the world. God called all the world to be fishers of men and this ministry is being obedient to Gods call and going into the world. Where they go is tough and not for the faint at heart, but they have the burden of reaching these people and we all should be supporting them in one for or another.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In seeing their presentation in our Sunday morning worship service.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get them to their mission field!

I had the opportunity to travel with Shekinah Gloria Ministries to Peru in 2009 and to see firsthand the amazing work that they are doing!

The village in the area they planted their school has flourished in leaps and bounds since they began their project there back in 2004. To see such a huge impact in the lives of the locals there moved me like nothing else in my life!

The school felt like an oasis in the middle of the desert and the children were some of the happiest I've ever seen in my life.

To see the thousands of lives touched as we traveled around the country, and to give away multiple tons of food was lifechanging and I cannot thank Shekinah Gloria Ministries enough for the amazing opportunity!

Some large organization have a tendency to utilize a majority of their funding for administrative costs and salaries and these guys have never once spent a single penny from donations on administrative costs or salaries! THEY HAVE TAKEN NO SALARY AND PAID ALL ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS OUT OF POCKET SINCE DAY ONE IN 2004!!

I really hope that this organization grows and expands, while keeping the same objectives and mindset that they currently have- the world has become a better place because of their work!!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Trujillo, Cajamarca, and Lima, Peru.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get them more funding so that they could work fulltime and take salaries. If they have done such an amazing work with a parttime effort and very little funding I would love to see what they could do with serious funding. They've already done so much with so little. I can't fathom what they could do with more.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

The only thing that they could improve is something that was really out of their hands, which was the altitude sickness. They couldn't prevent it, but did their best to help when it came on.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It taught me so much about the reality of the world, and how blessed I truly am. I met dozens of new friends and my life will forever be changed!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Made me feel like I was truly alive for the first time.
